Tyler Edwards holds a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Business Administration from Indiana Wesleyan University. Having grown up in and around both the seed and hydraulic mulch industry, Tyler has been fortunate enough to experience Hydro Straw’s growth from what started as an idea, to what is today’s industry leading straw-based hydraulic mulch product. Growing up, Tyler worked for many years at Summit Seed’s Illinois turfgrass research center, helping maintain research plots as well as assisting in seed blending for customers around the country. He also aided in the testing and development of HydroStraw’ s product assortment in the early years. While Tyler has always had an affinity for agriculture and erosion control, he stepped away from the industry to lead sales efforts around the Midwest for the world’s premier Public Safety gear and apparel brands, 5.11 Tactical and Armor Express. He also worked for Archway Defense – a leading Law Enforcement training company, specializing in firearms proficiency with agencies around the United States. In January of 2019, Tyler re-joined the HydroStraw team to assist in the anticipated growth following the Profile Products acquisition and has enjoyed utilizing the business experience he has gained in this new application. Tyler is currently the Operations and Western Business Development Manager at the HydroStraw manufacturing plant in Rockford, WA. In addition to his professional achievements, Tyler enjoy shooting sports, hiking, hunting and photography.
