H.B. Fuller Construction Products recently announced the opening of its new research and development center in Aurora, IL. The facility features new equipment and updated and expanded lab space that reportedly enhances the capabilities of the company’s research and development efforts. The center, formerly based in Palatine, IL, was relocated to H.B. Fuller Construction Products headquarters in Aurora to allow for improved collaboration with various company departments.

“The new facility will allow the research and development team to work more closely with sales, marketing, operations and other departments,” said Greg Schad, technical director. “Working in tandem with these departments, the R&D team will better understand our customer’s needs, allowing us to better serve them.”

Designed to meet the needs for formulating advanced technology materials, including water-based, reactive and cement chemistries, the center is equipped with state-of-the-art climate controls to meet the constant temperature and humidity requirements for industry specifications, such as ANSI A118 and ISO 13007. In addition, new and upgraded testing equipment is housed at the center to perform test methods for the construction industry. The facility also features expanded lab floor space, allowing H.B. Fuller Construction Products to add new R&D resources for their growing market presence.
