Bostik recently announced it completed the acquisition of the industrial adhesives of Nitta Gelatin Inc. by the Bostik-Nitta joint-venture in Japan. This acquisition will reportedly be complemented by the construction of a new adhesives plant in Japan, and intends to help Bostik to step up its development particularly in the fast-growing nonwoven markets for hygiene applications and in the packaging, labelling, transportation, and electronics industrial markets. Arkema is reportedly pursuing its strategy to develop its adhesives, which represent one of the major drivers of its long-term growth.
