Affinity Chemical expands with two new U.S. plants

Dallas Texas - Affinity Chemical, a leading supplier of bulk aluminum sulfate and other specialty chemicals, is opening two new U.S. aluminum sulfate (“alum”) manufacturing plants, bringing its total number of alum facilities to eight in the South and Midwest US.

Affinity’s Prattville, AL, alum facility starts up in mid-December 2020. The site was chosen due to the strong community and excellent workforce. It will quickly add additional product lines. The Durant, IA, plant is expected to be online Q1 2021 and will start-up with multiple operations.

Both sites are on large tracts of land with substantial rail and trans-loading capabilities. The new Alabama and Iowa facilities represent Affinity Chemical’s commitment to partnering with its industrial, pulp and paper, environmental, and municipal customers to provide high quality aluminum sulfate with price security and dependable service. “Affinity was born and continues to grow on one founding principle: understand the customers’ needs and deliver solutions to them through effective partnerships,” says Lance Johnson, Affinity Chemical’s managing partner.
