MetalTech-USA Names Spanish Zinc Producer, elZinc, As New Partner

MetalTech-USA-elZincPeachtree City, GA – MetalTech-USA has announced a new partnership with elZinc, the third largest producer of rolled zinc worldwide.

elZinc is the commercial trade name of Asturiana de Laminados, located in Asturias, Spain. The new partnership will allow MetalTech to become a leading distributor of elZinc products nationwide, bringing their customers the latest in zinc coil, sheet, and finished architectural products.

“A significant advantage to partnering with elZinc is the availability of color options and the agility of their mill to consistently develop their product range to keep pace with a market that’s always in flux,” says Nils Simonsen, President of MetalTech-USA.  “elZinc is a privately held company that’s nimble enough to assist in creating a change in our market but large enough with the resources in advanced technology to grow our market.”

As a company, elZinc prides itself in their policy of quality, respect for the environment and their continuous research, development and innovation.  Together with the use of the best technologies available in the market, elZinc offers products which more than comply with quality requirements outlined in the EN988 standard as well as ASTM B69-13, the standard specification for rolled zinc. With over 98% of elZinc sales already stemming from international markets, there is untapped potential to be captured in the Americas.

“[Our goal for elZinc is to] position ourselves, in the next 3 to 5 years as the number one architectural zinc company in the USA and in Latin America,” says Macario Fernandez Fernandez, elZinc President.

Whether natural or preweathered, zinc is a material highly valued by architects and professional roofers.  It allows great freedom in terms of aesthetics and architecture and is perfectly suitable for all types of construction both in classical and modern architecture.

“MetalTech-USA is the greatest consumer of architectural zinc in America.  It is also the most evolved and technically savvy company with whom to partner and with a great potential for growth,” says Fernandez.  “Evidently, if we achieve a strong partnership together the results will be great growth for both companies.”

“With this partnership, we are excited about what the future holds for MetalTech-USA and elZinc in the US and abroad,” says Simonsen.
