Heatbath Acquired by DuBois Chemicals – Customer Letter

Dear Valued Customer:

We are pleased to inform you that DuBois Chemicals, Inc., based in Sharonville, OH has recently completed the acquisition of Heatbath Corporation / Park Metallurgical. The acquisition combines DuBois paint pre-treatment, cleaning and metalworking expertise with Heatbath’s innovative and proven heat treating and metal finishing competency. This marriage of industry leaders significantly enhances the full range of process and chemical solutions available to our diverse range of valued manufacturing customers.

We felt it important to make you aware of this positive change as you will see reference to the DuBois name or notifications and correspondence from DuBois and we want to be sure there is no confusion as we transition ownership. There are no changes in practice at this time, we are operating “business as usual” and all previous business contacts remain in place. Our goal is continued uninterrupted supply and service. Making you aware of the change in ownership is the first step.

With the addition of the talent, products and services of Heatbath, DuBois Chemicals is now uniquely positioned with the most comprehensive metalworking, heat treating, metal finishing and paint pretreatment solutions of any supplier in the marketplace. We expect to offer many new products and services to support our customers and assist you to create high quality, consistent, cost effective operations. We thank you for your business and look forward to the continued opportunity to strengthen our partnership.

Should you have any immediate questions, please make contact your local Technical Sales Representative or Customer Service at 413-452-2000.
