Washington Mills Finalizes Exolon-ESK Acquisition
"We are anxious to begin the process of combining two of the country's oldest and most highly regarded manufacturers of abrasive materials," said Peter H. Williams, president of Washington Mills. "Between them, the two companies have over 220 years of experience in supplying abrasive products. We now intend to become even better suppliers to our customers through greater manufacturing efficiencies, enhanced process technology and an increased ability to respond quickly to customer needs."
The acquisition will reportedly provide Washington Mills with its own source of silicon carbide ore from Exolon-ESK's environmentally advanced Hennepin, Ill., plant.
