HOUSTON – Today, U.S. Zinc commemorates the company’s opening in 1949, celebrating 65 successful years in the zinc products marketplace. The company’s roots were as a wholesaler of nonferrous metals. Now, U.S. Zinc is a premier global supplier of zinc oxide, zinc dust, zinc metal and zinc fines.
Through its worldwide footprint, U.S. Zinc provides services to industries such as tires, coatings, rubber, chemicals and pharmaceuticals. The company is the largest metallic zinc materials recycler in the industry and is proudly committed to the philosophy of Our Cycle is Recycle®. U.S. Zinc owns and operates the world’s largest single site distilled zinc dust plant. With the recent capacity expansions at its two Tennessee plants, a new China plant and addition of the Tres Maria, Brazil, facility to its portfolio, U.S. Zinc has more than doubled its zinc oxide availability in the last seven years. The company is now the largest zinc oxide producer in the world.
“Celebrating 65 years signifies not just our longevity but the strong quality of our products and the exceptional capability of our people,” said Rodrigo Daud, president of U.S. Zinc. “Our innovative performance today and in the future will ensure highest quality products and unequaled reliability for our customers, further distinguishing U.S. Zinc in the marketplace.”
