Western Excelsior manufacturing facilities are located in Campbell, Texas, Centre, Alabama, Macon, Georgia, Poseyville, Indiana, and the corporate offices are located in Evansville, Indiana. Western Excelsior maintains an extensive network of distributors with offices from coast to coast.

In the beginning, Western Excelsior utilized timber harvested from logging initiatives aimed at dramatically reducing forest fires in the Rocky Mountains, manufacturing machine-produced excelsior since 1977. In the years since, our erosion and sediment control product lines have expanded to include the use of a wide range of rapidly-renewable materials.

Western Excelsior produces a wide variety of Rolled Erosion Control Products (RECPs) and sediment control products. All these materials provide engineered environmental stewardship with a product that is produced primarily of rapid-renewable and pre-consumer recycled materials. Using Western Excelsior products can aid in LEED certification while reducing pollution, and enhancing vegetation establishment. Western Excelsior provides the ultimate partnership between nature and technology, using natural resources engineered to preserve our natural landscapes — "Blanketing Nature with Nature."

Our products are engineered to provide maximum ecological stewardship while delivering the best value for our customers.

Western Excelsior is a proud member of the International Erosion Control Association (IECA) and an active member and supporter of the Erosion Control Technology Council (ECTC) and the Quality and Data, Oversight and Review program (QDOR).
