IPS Structural Adhesives Announces Changes

March 28, 2011

IPS Structural Adhesives recently announced it is leveraging its merger with Holdtite Adhesives Ltd. to create a new brand, expand production capacity and introduce new technologies to a broader array of markets. The expansion includes new investments in people, technology, equipment and processes, thus allowing the company to expand its product portfolio of structural and engineered adhesive solutions while focusing on new product and application development.

IPS Structural Adhesives has also announced plans to merge its premier brands (Weld-On, Holdtite and Macroplexx) into a single brand. The new SCIGRIP Smarter Adhesives Solutions brand brings together two global leaders in the adhesive solutions industry.

“We take seriously our commitment to be true solutions providers for our customers, and this merger will enhance our abilities with a much broader technology platform,” said John Reeves, president. “Weld-On, Holdtite, and Macroplexx have strong research and development teams focused on addressing our customers’ specific application demands with proven solutions. It’s a great marriage of two strong product lines.”
