Zochem, previously a subsidiary of American Zinc Recycling LLC, has been acquired by Zinc Oxide LLC. The combined company is the largest producer of zinc oxide in North America. Headquarters are at the Zinc Oxide LLC Dickson TN facility. Because of the strength and longevity of the Zochem brand, the new company will operate as Zochem.
Founded in 1933, Zochem has been located in Brampton, Ontario since 1974. Led by a team of industry veterans, Zinc Oxide LLC began in 2013 and has been rapidly establishing itself as a major player in the market. Both the Brampton and Dickson facilities will continue to manufacture all product lines with the French Process method exclusively, as this method produces zinc oxide with the most consistent quality and highest purity. Zochem’s extensive domestic and global distribution network will also remain in place.
The combined company will continue to supply zinc oxide to the tire, rubber, chemical, electronics, agricultural, plastics, USP/pharma, ceramics markets, and more.
