Meridian Adhesives Group recently announced the acquisition of Evans Adhesive Corp. Arsenal Capital Partners created Meridian earlier this year as its new platform in the global adhesives and sealants sector.

“Our customers will continue to receive the Evans Adhesive’s experience along with increased access to a variety of different adhesive technologies, additional technical resources and overall support from a larger platform,” said Rusty Thompson, president of Evans Adhesive. “Being part of Meridian provides our valued employees with more career growth opportunities. All of us at Evans Adhesive could not be more excited and pleased to be part of Meridian.”

“Evans Adhesive’s portfolio of technologies, well-known brands and customer intimacy culture fits with Meridian’s philosophy and strategy,” said Dan Pelton, CEO of Meridian. “This acquisition adds another avenue for driving technology across the Meridian platform.”
