When Zinc Oxide LLC launched in 2013, it was North America’s newest manufacturer of zinc oxide. In fact, our plant in Dickson, Tennessee was the first ZnO plant to come on line in North America in over 20 years.
In October 2017, Zinc Oxide LLC announced the acquisition of Zochem, a subsidiary of American Zinc Recycling LLC. The combined company is now a leading producer of zinc oxide in North America. Headquarters is now at the Zinc Oxide LLC Dickson TN facility.
Founded in 1933, Zochem has been located in Brampton, Ontario since 1974. Led by a team of industry veterans, Zinc Oxide LLC has rapidly established itself as a major player in the market. The acquisition included all of Zochem’s manufacturing operations and product lines. Both the Brampton and Dickson facilities manufacture with the French Process method exclusively, as this method produces zinc oxide with the most consistent quality and highest purity. Another company strength is Zochem’s an extensive domestic and global distribution network.
With an 85+ year history, Zochem is “new” again, reinvigorated by new capabilities and a new perspective. Our senior management team is the most experienced in the industry, with a combined experience of over 250 years. Chances are, you already know and have worked with our team. We came together to form Zinc Oxide LLC after realizing that the market needed another choice. But we are not just another marketplace option, our goal is to deliver the best product, service and customer satisfaction.
Both of our facilities produce grades designed for the rubber, tire, chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, oil additives, ceramics, electronics, glass, plastics, paint and coatings, tape and adhesives, and fertilizer markets.
Regardless of the industry, we can meet your zinc oxide needs. We have the capability of producing customized grades of zinc oxides and we ship in a wide variety of packaging, including custom packaging. And you will likely benefit from our centralized plant locations, close to all modes of transport.
