Justrite Safety acquires Eagle Manufacturing

Justrite Safety Group announced the acquisition of West Virginia-based Eagle Manufacturing Company.

Eagle is a manufacturer of safety cans, safety cabinets, spill containment products, poly drums and material handling products.

The addition expands the Justrite Safety Group, a supplier of products for the safe management of flammable liquids and other hazardous materials. 

“The acquisition of Eagle by Justrite Safety Group further demonstrates our business strategy to better serve our customers within the industrial safety, environmental, and material handling product sector of the global market,” said Mark McElhinny, Justrite president and CEO. “We value Eagle’s ongoing commitment to meet their customers’ expectations for ‘compliance solutions’ products to help industry meet strict local, state and federal regulations.” 

Joe Eddy, Eagle president, said the company will continue to sell Eagle-branded products, but the acquisition is a growth opportunity for Eagle. “This transaction will fuel revenue growth, create additional job opportunities, allow for product expansion and provide for greater economic impact in our community, state and region,” said Eddy, who has been named an executive vice president in the Justrite Safety Group, leading the North American chemical safety business, which will include the Justrite operation in Mattoon, Illinois.
