U.S. Zinc, a portfolio company of Aterian Investment Partners, has bought EverZinc, a provider of zinc materials, from OpenGate Capital.

EverZinc specializes in fine zinc powders, zinc oxide, zinc for batteries and Zano, an ultra-fine zinc oxide. EverZinc is led by CEO Vincent Dujardin.

“When we acquired EverZinc, we believed the business had tremendous potential for geographic expansion and innovation, and under Vincent’s leadership, new products were developed,” said Julien Lagrèze, partner at OpenGate. “It has been a truly rewarding experience working with Vincent and his team, and we’re confident that EverZinc is in great hands as it embarks on a new phase of growth.”
