Corrosion Innovations Announces Merger with Distribution Partner

Corrosion Innovations (Pasadena, Texas, USA), manufacturer of the Corr-Zee surface preparation product line, recently announced a merger with its long-term partner, CRW Consulting and Distribution, LLC (CRW) (Houston, Texas, USA). 

With CRW having partnered with Corrosion Innovations in 2020 as their master distributor, the merger is a natural fit based on their shared history. In addition, the merger will significantly enhance product and consulting offering from Corrosion Innovations. Marlin Lester will remain the company’s chief executive officer, while new appointments include Jeremi Day as chief technical officer, Gregg Taney as president, and Trey Chandler as director of international sales. 

“We are proud of this merger and the synergy this team brings to the industry and Corrosion Innovations,” says Lester. “This will no doubt add to the market leading edge that we hold above all competitors.” 

Former members of the CRW team expressed optimistic outlooks about the merger between the two companies. 

“This merger sets us up for the vertical integration we’ll need for the future,” says Taney. “This is a stepping stone to some great things coming very soon; stay tuned.” 

“CRW has been an integral part of the Corr-Zee product growth in the industry and forming this joint partnership was always a hope for us,” says Chandler. “I’m proud we’ve reached the point of seeing it materialize, and we’re very excited about the future.” 

“We couldn’t be more thrilled about this,” says Day. “We’re bringing together two extremely strong companies in the corrosion control industry, who will set standards in innovation, while leading the way in the surface preparation industry.”
