Houghton and SBS Form Marketing and Sales Alliance
The Heat Treatment Division of Houghton International Inc. (Valley Forge, Pa.; www.houghtonintl.com) has formed a marketing and sales alliance with SBS Corp. (based in Rochester, N.Y.; www.sbscorporation.com), a manufacturer of cooling, heating and filtration equipment for the heat treatment industry. According to the agreement, Houghton's global sales network will carry SBS's product line as part of its QUENCHCARE™ heat treatment support service. Both companies will continue to manufacture and provide technical service for their existing, respective product lines. This alliance allows SBS to expand its product base to other metalworking process areas that Houghton currently serves, including die casting, stamping and tooling.
