Catalynt is proud to announce the acquisition of ChemBlend of America, LLC (CBA) in Bensenville, IL to strengthen our commitment to providing value-added services and creative options that allow our customers to improve their purchasing power, lower the demand on their human capital, and decrease labor and operational costs.
