EDI acquires Premier Dies
In a bid to expand its footprint in the global fluid coating market, Extrusion Dies Industries (EDI) has acquired Premier Dies Corporation, a provider of slot coating and flat polymer extrusion dies.
“Putting these two organizations together immediately provides our customers with a broader product portfolio and access to an expanded global sales and service network. The combination of EDI’s global distribution and Premier’s differentiated technology will enable us to capture multiple new opportunities within existing and emerging markets,“ said Gary Edwards, CEO of Chippewa Falls, Wis.-based EDI. Founded in 1971, EDI is an international company specializing in the design and manufacture of die heads, multilayer adapters, and related auxiliary equipment.
The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
Founded in 2001, Premier Dies Corporation supplies liquid and emulsion coating equipment and systems for web coating applications. Equipment typically supplied includes single and multi-layer slot dies, slide dies, curtain coating dies, die positioning systems, fluid delivery systems, vacuum systems, filtration systems and supporting auxiliary equipment.
