Headquartered in Houston, Texas, with facilities in California, Colorado, Alabama, Italy and Mexico, KMG manufactures, formulates and globally distributes specialty chemicals for the Electronics, Industrial Wood Preservation and Industrial Lubricants markets.
As the complexity of semiconductor silicon wafers continues to advance, so too must the purity of the process chemicals used in their manufacture. KMG is proud to be a leading supplier of high purity process chemicals for many of the world’s leading technology companies.
We supply high-purity process chemicals for three major markets:
– Semiconductor manufacturing
– Photovoltaic (solar cell panel) manufacturing
– Flat panel display manufacturing
KMG is the leading North American manufacturer of pentachlorophenol (“penta”), an industrial wood preservative primarily used to protect and preserve the life of utility poles in the electric power and communications industries.
The U.S. possesses a massive wooden infrastructure, methodically built and maintained over the past century and a half. Treated wood is a fundamental material used for railway ties, utility poles, bridge timbers and marine pilings. Our specialty wood treating products are necessary to preserve and protect the wood used in these important applications. For more information on the benefits of treated wood, see our Why Treated Wood? page.
