As of May 1, 2018, EP Minerals is now a U.S. Silica company. The best thing about this news is that everything will remain the same for you, our customers.
EP Minerals will continue to operate as a stand-alone company, under our new U.S. Silica ownership. Customers will have the same contacts at EP Minerals as today – in sales, customer service, and the other departments that they normally contact. However, if you currently buy products from U.S. Silica, too, you should continue to contact your representative at U.S. Silica for those particular products.
As you may know, U.S. Silica is an NYSE-listed industrial minerals company that produces silica sand, frac sand, ground silica, and specialty minerals. The company is headquartered in Frederick, Maryland, and has a strong US footprint as well as an international presence.
U.S. Silica is buying us to grow their business. We are complementary to what they do – industrial minerals, mining, and the same core competencies in operations and people. They are buying us to diversify their business and expand their innovation, R&D efforts and new product pipeline. We will continue to grow our business with a focus on innovation, new products and what you've always known us for: quality, technical expertise & our high-touch customer service.
Being part of U.S. Silica benefits you too, as they fully support our plan to invest in our plants, our R&D efforts and new product development as we work with you on innovative solutions, new markets, and applications. You can expect to receive the same high level of service from your same support team at EP Minerals. What you need to know:
- Your salesperson and customer service person are the same
- All the other contacts you have at EP Minerals are the same
- How you do business with us: placing orders, bank accounts, remitting information, non-disclosure agreements, or anything else you might need, stays the same as today
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your salesperson or your customer service representative.
