Dear Valued Customer, Vendors and Suppliers,

We are thrilled to announce announce that effective February 1, 2023, EGC Enterprises and Slade Operating Company have been acquired by CDI Energy Products, a global leader in high-performance polymer product manufacturing. We see this acquisition as a win-win for our customers and our team. We are proud to join forces with CDI.

On a daily basis, things continue as normal; the only difference is that we now have added resources and capabilities to continue creating value for you and our clients around the globe with a larger array of goods and services to tackle your most difficult challenges.

What does this mean for us?

EGC and Slade will continue to operate as we do today, and we will partner with CDI on new initiatives and opportunities. As a part of the extended CDI family, we will work to implement new safety and sustainability processes and procedures which will help to better protect our staff, our operations, and our world at large. Our locations in North Carolina and Ohio will maintain operations and will have the benefit of CDI’s custom engineering, material design and manufacturing expertise, as well as greater global supply chain access.
