Welcome to our annual Distributor Directory, a year-long reference tool designed to help you quickly locate a distributor that best suits your needs. Distributor listings are organized by region and include company contact information such as address, phone, fax, email, website, and key personnel. Many listings also include a description of the distributor’s offerings, as well as details regarding the companies that the distributor represents. In addition, the online version at www.adhesivesmag.com/distributordirectory includes extras like hotlinks and spec sheets for select companies.

The relationship between distributors and manufacturers in the adhesives and sealants industry has evolved far beyond simple product delivery. I looked into that relationship recently, and the depth and range of services that distributors have developed is truly impressive. Learn how distributors are continuously evolving to serve the adhesives and sealants industry in our Distributor Roundtable.

At ASI, we try to continually evolve to suit our readers’ needs. To that end, beginning with this issue, we’ll be including keywords for each column and article to help identify the industry sectors and topics that are covered. Look for the Industry Focus information on the Table of Contents, as well as the first page of each column and article.
