Bostik recently announced that it has extended its hot-melt pressure-sensitive adhesives (HMPSA) production capacities with the opening of a new plant at its manufacturing facility in Bangalore, India.

The development will reportedly enhance Bostik’s ability to serve customers in the disposable hygiene sector.

“We are pleased to continue Bostik’s expansion in fast-growing economies with the extension of our facilities in Bangalore, India,” said Jeffrey Merkt, senior vice president of Asia. “Development in high growth geographic markets remains one of the central components of Bostik’s future growth strategy and this new facility will ensure we maintain our close ties with customers in India while meeting the growing demands of this important market.”.

The new plant in India reportedly represents the latest milestone in the Bostik group’s international expansion following recent plant openings in China, Malaysia, and Brazil.

A cross-regional approach was adopted to design the plant with engineering and operations expertise from other Bostik HMPSA production sites. The new unit has state-of-the-art equipment and will reportedly use the latest manufacturing techniques to ensure the highest levels of safety, quality, and efficiency. It also includes a fully automated packing operation, ensuring the quality and efficiency required by customers in the disposable hygiene sector.
