Columbia Chemical informs us that it has joined forces with Heatbath Corporation to provide superior products, technical support and value to the US zinc plating industry. In addition to sharing of marketing efforts, the new alliance allows both companies to co-operate in the areas of new product development and customer support.

Heatbath has been supplying US metal finishers for nearly 80 years, and maintains warehousing and technical sales and service representatives in all major US markets. Columbia Chemical has focused on developing and manufacturing zinc plating additives since its beginning in 1975.
