Covia Completes Acquisition of Sidley’s Industrial Minerals Division

Covia has completed its previously announced acquisition of R.W. Sidley’s Industrial Minerals Division, which provides high-quality, silica-based products for use in filtration, industrial and sports applications.

The acquisition of Sidley’s silica sand mining operation in Thompson, Ohio, includes the quarry and reserves, along with certain buildings, machinery, and equipment needed for operations. 

Through this purchase, Covia expands its portfolio of industry-leading products. For example, customers seeking best quality bunker sand for golf courses now have a selection of top brands from one supplier, with Pro/Angle, a premium angular sand made from pure silica quartz, now offered along with Covia’s BESTSAND products. 

Adding the Thompson site to the Covia portfolio also broadens its offerings in filter media, premium infill sand for athletic fields and construction materials.

“The expanded portfolio and the combined power of our teams will help our customers secure the high-quality products they need,” said Barry Esposito, Covia’s executive vice president, industrial performance materials, U.S. and Canada. “We’re excited to expand our network and product offerings to support customers of both companies with more options and great service.”
