Kevin Yamashita, a partner at Bertram Capital, said: “Premier has established a world-class brand and distinguished itself as a technology leader. The union between EDI and Premier creates a company that is uniquely positioned for growth.”

EDI specialises in the design and manufacture of die heads, multilayer adapters and related auxiliary equipment. Premier Dies supplies liquid- and emulsion-coating equipment and systems for web-coating applications, including single- and multilayer slot dies, slide dies, curtain coating dies, die positioning systems, fluid-delivery systems, vacuum systems, filtration systems and supporting auxiliary equipment, as well as specialised extrusion dies for polymer processing.

EDI CEO Gary Edwards said, “Putting these two organisations 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.”
