Extrusion Dies Names Edwards President

Bertram Capital, which acquired Extrusion Dies Industries LLC (EDI) at the close of 2010, recently announced that Gary Edwards has been named CEO of EDI. Edwards will lead EDI in a program of growth through investment in innovative technology, acquisitions, and new resources for serving domestic and international customers, according to Kevin Yamashita, a Bertram Capital partner. Before joining EDI, Gary Edwards served as CEO of Tyden Group, Inc., a manufacturer of specialized security, identification, traceability, and security products with plants in North America, Europe, and Asia.

“Gary has extensive experience helping companies that are already profitable to realize their full potential,” said Yamashita. “He has special expertise in carrying out strategies for lean manufacturing, successfully integrating acquired businesses, and implementing organic growth initiatives that build on the company’s core competencies.”

John A. Ulcej will continue in his role as EDI’s president, heading a management team that in recent years has led the company in achieving the highest growth rates in its 40-year history.
