HOUSTON – U.S. Zinc has created a new position focused on overseeing key distribution relationships. Paul Myers, a 37-year rubber and chemicals industry veteran, has accepted the role of Distribution Manager, effective immediately.

Myers will manage U.S. Zinc’s distribution alliances with HB Chemical and Azelis (formally KODA), as well as U.S. Zinc’s specialty distributors.
