Profile Extrusion Company (Profile) is an aluminum extrusion company committed to innovation, manufacturing, excellence, and the highest standard of customer service and satisfaction. Founded in 1960, the company has continued to operate in Rome and Floyd County for more than 50 years.
“It is always great news to have one of our existing industries expand and become more competitive,” said Mayor Wright Bagby, City of Rome.

“An investment like this proves that doing business in Floyd County helps you stay competitive in a global market,” said Eddie Lumsden, Chairman, Floyd County Commission.
The company underwent an $8 million expansion in 2006 adding a state-of-the-art press which has allowed them to survive through tough economic times.
“We are fortunate to have a leader like David Newby in our community,” said Harry Brock, Chairman, Greater Rome Chamber of Commerce, Appraisal Associates of Rome. “His leadership is what makes this business’ expansion possible.”
“It’s always exciting news when one of our longtime corporate citizens decides to expand in Georgia,” said Gretchen Corbin, Senior Project Manager, Existing Industry and Regional Recruitment, for the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “We appreciate Profile Extrusion and David Newby’s continued investment in the state, and we look forward to the company’s continued success.”
