Covia Completes Separation of Energy and Industrial Businesses

Independence, Ohio, July 1, 2024 – Covia Holdings LLC, a leading provider of mineral-based and material solutions for the industrial and energy markets, today announced that it has completed the previously announced separation of its Energy and Industrial businesses.

Covia Energy, LLC now operates as a stand-alone company based in The Woodlands, Texas. Michael Segura, who joined Covia in 2023 as President of the Energy Division, has been confirmed as the President and CEO of Covia Energy. Bruno Biasiotta continues as President and CEO of Covia Solutions, the business focused on industrial markets, which is headquartered in Independence, Ohio. Both companies are privately held.

Biasiotta said, “Separating these two very different businesses into independent companies allows both to pursue the strategies and opportunities that make the most sense in their markets. We’re excited to see what the future holds for both, and we look forward to serving our customers even more efficiently and providing innovative solutions that support their success.”

“The separation is an exciting step forward for Covia Energy,” said Segura. “The foundation we’ve built for this business over the past several years is a great platform for continued growth and value. With a clear focus on the oil and gas markets, we can scale to support our customers through our reliable service and quality products.”
