Holden Industries is an employee-owned corporation headquartered in Deerfield, Illinois. Holden was incorporated in Delaware on June 13, 2003, in anticipation of a tax-free spin-off from its parent company. The spin-off divided the diversified portfolio of existing assets in a manner that formed compatible groups of assets with defined strategic objectives. On April 20, 2004, the stock of five subsidiary corporations were transferred to Holden. Holden is currently comprised of four core businesses. Each business operates in a distinct industry.
On December 27, 2007, the newly formed Employee Stock Ownership Plan acquired 100% of the stock of Holden Industries. This put the ownership and control of the Company's future in the hands of Holden's managers and employees.
