Our August issue is chock-full of annual offerings and focused content to help you and your business succeed. This issue of ASI brings you our annual Distributor Directory, as well as the ever-popular ASI Top 20 listing of the world’s leading adhesives and sealants manufacturers.

The Distributor Directory is organized by region.* Distributor contact information is provided, and descriptions detail each company’s offerings. Be sure to also refer to the online Distributor Directory at www.adhesivesmag.com/distributordirectory. The searchable online directory features our Request for Proposal option, as well as additional functionality. You’ll want to bookmark it for easy reference!

We’re also happy to present the 2020 ASI Top 20 listing of the world’s leading adhesives and sealants manufacturers. In order to develop this year’s ranking, we reached out to manufacturers and requested details (e.g., sales figures, R&D spending) related specifically to their adhesives and sealants business. Along with company-supplied information, we poured over secondary sources such as annual reports, investor presentations, company websites, and press releases to glean additional details regarding each company’s adhesives and sealants-related activities.

Thank you so much to all of the companies that answered our call for information. We truly rely on you to make this the most accurate content possible. Some organizations did not respond or chose not to provide focused information. If publicly available information did not provide enough detail for reasonable estimates regarding those companies’ adhesives and sealants-related businesses, they unfortunately had to be left out of the ranking.

I would love to hear your thoughts regarding the 2020 ASI Top 20. If you have comments or suggestions for future rankings, or if you would like your company to be considered for the 2021 ASI Top 20, please contact me at (248) 786-1704 or suttons@bnpmedia.com.
