Here is what Carillon Eagle Small Cap Growth Fund has to say about Chart Industries, Inc. in their Q4 2020 investor letter:

"Chart Industries manufactures equipment used primarily in the production and storage of industrial gases. The firm appears poised to benefit from a number of worldwide environmental, social, and governance (ESG) trends that are firmly in motion. Most notably, its considerable exposure to the potential adoption of hydrogen as a clean energy source and the corresponding widespread buildout necessary to achieve that has resonated with investors. Additionally, Chart is pursuing opportunities within water treatment, which could also prove to be a catalyst for potential growth, albeit to a lesser extent."
