Adhesives Technology Corp. (ATC) recently announced the promotion of T.J. Bland to the position of president. He succeeds Hart McIntyre, who will transition to a consulting role with ATC parent company Meridian Adhesives Group, LLC.
Bland has reportedly grown his responsibility with ATC over the past six years; he was elevated to general manager and chief operating officer last year. He is credited with leading the design, engineering, and manufacture of the company’s ULTRABOND® HS-1CC anchoring and doweling epoxy. Prior to his appointment with ATC, Bland worked as vice president of Research & Development at Stanley Black & Decker, Inc., where he was tasked with developing products that exceeded structural standards through design and testing excellence.
McIntyre acquired ATC in 1990. He said he is most proud of the company’s consistent growth, typically doubling in size every five years, and its focus on product quality and integrity.
“After 30 years, this is the right time to make a shift in my career and enable T. J. Bland to take the lead at ATC,” said McIntyre. “He has an impressive set of skills, has proven himself to be a strong, innovative leader, and we expect great performance in the future.”
