Bostik recently announced that it has extended its hot-melt pressure-sensitive adhesives (HMPSA) production capacities by opening a new plant at its manufacturing facility in Bangalore, India. The new plant is intended to 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.”

A cross-regional approach was adopted to design the plant with engineering and operations expertise from other Bostik HMPSA production sites.
