E&E was founded in 1994 to develop and distribute specialty chemicals for the oil and gas exploration, mining, construction and environmental drilling, and construction markets. E&E is also a supplier of patented mixed metal oxide (MMO) chemistries. The combined businesses will provide a broader platform of products and E&E’s customers will have strengthened technical support.
Willson Ropp, Prince CEO, commented, “We believe the oil and gas and mining industries will benefit from the strengths of the combined businesses. Our customers will see an increase in product solutions such as innovative rheology modifiers for water based mud systems and low volatile organic systems for concrete and asphalt cures.”
