OLD BRIDGE, NJ, MARCH 27, 2018 -- Old Bridge Chemicals (OB), North America's largest manufacturer of copper and zinc compounds, is pleased to announce a major expansion of its zinc sulfate manufacturing operations. The expansion reflects over a $3 million investment that more than doubles OB's zinc sulfate manufacturing capacity, while addressing product quality requirements for a diversity of industries and applications the company serves.

Hosted by OB senior management, the occasion was marked by a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by The Honorable Owen Henry, Mayor of Old Bridge Township, other local officials, and OB team members. Located on the company's 64,000 sq. acres campus, the new zinc sulfate operation has resulted in the hiring of over a dozen new employees with additional recruitment anticipated.

Bruce Bzura, President of Old Bridge Chemicals said, "This most recent milestone continues to advance the quality and reliability of OB's high-performance zinc sulfate products, while showcasing our strong ties to the Old Bridge community. "

The zinc sulfate manufacturing expansion coincides with the recent installation of a state-of-the-art, continuous vacuum filtration system. The system has resulted in increased efficiencies, while meeting OB's exacting product standards that are further verified at the company's onsite testing laboratory.
