Univertical is North America’s leading manufacturer of premium metal anodes, chemicals and chemical solutions used in metal plating processes. Univertical serves a broad base of blue-chip customers in the general metal finishing (aerospace, appliances, building products, coinage, electronics), plating-on-plastic (automotive), printed circuit board, solar energy and semiconductor markets. The Company’s products are used as critical inputs by manufacturers for functional purposes, such as achieving superior conductivity characteristics of copper on printed circuit boards, semiconductors and solar panels; improving appearance and preventing rust or corrosion. Univertical has state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Angola, Indiana, and in Suzhou, China. ALCONIX trades a broad range of non-ferrous metals, including aluminum, copper and nickel.
