As part of the agreement, Enthone has been named the European distributor for Dipsol. Specifically, the collaboration leverages highly regarded Dipsol technology utilizing Enthone's global sales and distribution infrastructure. Enthone will now offer European and North American customers a complete line of both companies’ products and processes, including high-performance zinc and zinc alloy plating chemistries, sealants and more. Furthermore, OEM and applicator programs will be jointly introduced to the North American market. The programs will feature the robust technology portfolios and application expertise offered by both companies.

The agreement builds upon the Canadian distribution agreement enacted last February, while representing a strong and growing partnership between two of the world's leading chemical suppliers.

Steven Corbett, Chief Executive Officer of Cookson Electronics and President of Enthone said, “It is a great day for both companies, but most importantly for our North American and European customers. The Dipsol-Enthone partnership offers OEMs and our customers a greater global reach and technical expertise, as well as improved and more immediate access to technology.”

Tsukasa Maezono, President of Dipsol, said, “Both Dipsol and Enthone possess strongly established and extensive OEM approvals for North American, Japanese and European manufacturers. Together, our companies provide the one of the industry’s deepest product portfolios and development capability.”

Corbett added, “Enthone and Dipsol will continue to deliver reliable, consistent products manufactured under exacting standards. The combined global technical support and application experience now accessible is unparalleled in the surface finishing industry today. We welcome the opportunity to create customer value by offering the industry’s most cost-effective, innovative technologies.”
