Worthington Industries acquired the business of NetBraze, a manufacturer of brazing alloys, silver brazing filler metals, solders and fluxes primarily used in plumbing, HVACR, industrial gas and OEM markets. NetBraze is located in Mt. Orab, Ohio, and has 23 employees.
“This acquisition expands our offering of alloys in the professional wholesale channel with innovative products that utilize patented technologies,” said Worthington Industries’ Pressure Cylinders President Andy Billman. “The products that NetBraze has developed save an operator time, resources and cost when brazing. We look forward to offering these new products in addition to our full complement of joining technologies products to our customers.”
Worthington manufactures and distributes a full line of joining alloys including lead-free solders, brazing rods, fluxes, hand torches and hand torch fuel under the Worthington Joining Technologies and Bernzomatic brands. NetBraze products include standard BCuP brazing alloys, BAg silver solders and fluxes, and innovative technologies including QuickCoil, which offers up to 22 ft. of nonstop brazing, and products with lower braze temperatures that make the brazing process more efficient.
