H.B. Fuller Co. recently announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding to enter into cross-distribution agreements with Plexbond Quimica S/A in Brazil for flexible packaging products in several countries.

H.B. Fuller and Plexbond intend to partner to leverage each company’s skills and capabilities to benefit the flexible packaging market in South America. As flexible packaging converters continue to seek adhesives to help reduce packaging materials, contain shipping costs and address environmental concerns, the product portfolio and expertise of H.B. Fuller and Plexbond will reportedly help them to better address the South American market’s evolving needs.

“We are very enthusiastic about our new collaboration with Plexbond,” said Juan Lam, business director, Packaging, Latin America, H.B. Fuller. “Our combined skills and efforts will further our vision to provide highly specialized adhesive formulations, an optimized line of adhesive technologies and technical support to customers throughout South America.”
