QualiChem recently announced that it has entered into a global partnership with Yushiro. The strategic partnership will bring together two of the premier metalworking fluid manufacturers in the industry. Yushiro is the largest supplier of metalworking fluids in the Asia-Pacific region, while QualiChem is one of the fastest growing metalworking fluid businesses in North America.
The partnership will allow Yushiro and QualiChem to leverage their respective product lines, research and development, supply chain, and manufacturing capabilities to expand each company's technology, products and services to the global metalworking and water-treatment markets.
"This is an excellent opportunity for our distributors, customers and employees," said Glenn Frank, president of QualiChem. "Yushiro's extensive R&D capabilities and complementary sales channels will help us to better serve our existing customer base. Additionally, Yushiro's 12 manufacturing plants throughout Asia, North America and South America will provide immediate entry into new markets for our metalworking fluids and water-treatment products."
In the water-treatment market, Yushiro will build on QualiChem's private label business model. QualiChem will continue to be led by its current leadership team.
"This water treatment market in the U.S. and globally is projected to grow significantly, and we look forward to working with QualiChem's water-treatment team to expand its manufacturing base globally through Yushiro's existing network," said Takuya Ishikawa, president and CEO of Yushiro Manufacturing America.
