Delta Plus Group is a global manufacturer of head-to-toe safety equipment for workers in construction and general industry. In business for more than 40 years, it had revenues in excess of $318 million in 2019 and operations in more than 32 countries.
“For Delta Plus Group, the addition of ERB Industries in the Group significantly increases our penetration into the U.S. market,” says Jérôme Benoit, president and CEO of Delta Plus Group. “This acquisition is the perfect complement to earlier acquisitions in the U.S. The addition of ERB Industries to our portfolio will strengthen our relevance and value position for customers. We are impressed by the high-quality standards of ERB Industries, and we look forward to working with Sheila Eads [CEO of ERB Industries] and her team to accelerate the development of the combined ERB / Delta Plus offering, and to take an exciting new step forward in fulfilling our vision of becoming a leader in the U.S. market for personal protective equipment.”
For more than 60 years, ERB Industries has been a growth-oriented manufacturer, says a news release. Under Eads’ leadership, the company has grown through designing, creating and marketing a comprehensive offering of quality-centric products to protect workers throughout the Americas.
“The Delta Plus values of entrepreneurship, family and curiosity parallels those of ERB Industries,” says Eads. “We are very excited to increase the value to our customers by broadening our current product offering through the strength of the Delta Plus brand and to build on the successes of both businesses together for many years to come.”
ERB Industries has long-standing local roots and employed hundreds of people residing in the North Atlanta and Woodstock, Georgia communities. When the company moved to Woodstock in 1972, it was one of few manufacturing businesses in Cherokee County providing employees a place to work close to home. Delta Plus Group plans to continue this legacy by residing in the Woodstock community.
