Meridian Adhesives Group, Dalton, Georgia, on Thursday announced the acquisition of E-Chem, Albuquerque, New Mexico. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

E-Chem specializes in the design, manufacturing, marketing and supply of epoxy polymer products for concrete, products that are used in the preservation, rehabilitation, repair and structural support of concrete surfaces and structures. The company serves multiple industries, including transportation authorities, petro-chemical processing, renewable energy, non-residential concrete construction and parking structure rehabilitation.

“We are thrilled to have E-Chem joining the Infrastructure Division of Meridian,” said Daniel Pelton, CEO of Meridian Adhesives Group. “We are looking forward to expanding our business more aggressively in the infrastructure market, and I am confident the skilled team at E-Chem will drive value to that endeavor.”

E-Chem, founded in 2012 by James High, will be part of Meridian’s Infrastructure Division and work alongside Adhesives Technology Corp., a manufacturer of construction and industry-related adhesives in epoxies, urethanes, acrylics, ester blends and polyureas.

“Joining Meridian’s expert technology team is an exciting step for E-Chem,” High said. “Our continuous pattern of growth will be bolstered even further by the group’s extensive distributor network, which is a significant asset in terms of market penetration. This strategic initiative will also provide value in terms of productivity, from additional professional resources to better buying positions, while allowing us to expand our focus on existing product improvements and the development of innovative new products geared toward the rehabilitation of our nation’s aging infrastructure.”
