Woodbridge International, a global mergers and acquisitions firm, is pleased to announce the acquisition of its client, Electro Chemical by Knight Material Technologies.
Since 1949, Electro Chemical Engineering and Manufacturing Co. (EC) located in Emmaus, Pennsylvania has been creating innovative and leading technologies in fluoropolymer lining and coating systems for pressure vessels, tanks, distribution equipment and internal components. EC corrosion protection systems are reliable and durable while providing lower capital costs than alternative solutions.
This represents a tremendous opportunity for our company and workforce at EC,” said Mike Bunner, President, who will remain with EC as a consultant through the transition period. “Throughout our 70+ year history, EC has focused on driving innovation and technology solutions for our customers. This acquisition extends our geographic reach and positions us to bring even more capabilities to our customers in ways that will strengthen our position as a premier provider of linings and coatings to some of the industry’s most demanding applications.”
Founded in 1910, Knight Material Technologies (KMT) designs, installs, services and manufactures custom acid-resistant linings used in highly corrosive processes for the chemical and mining industries worldwide. Headquartered in East Canton, OH, the company sells products in more than 40 countries with sales offices in Australia and Chile and a fabrication shop in Baytown, Texas.
Woodbridge International’s ground-breaking approach to marketing a company globally has transformed the way the sell-side M&A industry does business.
