EUKALIN Corp., a member of EUKALIN Group and a manufacturer of adhesives for the paper and film converting industries, announced it has acquired 100% of the assets of Adhesives Specialists. Adhesives Specialists Inc. (ASI), a manufacturer of both waterborne and hot-melt adhesives, operates out of a 40,000-square-foot facility and supports customers across the United States. Its manufacturing operation produces adhesives for applications like bottle, can, and jar labeling; food packaging; carton sealing; paper bag forming; and foam bonding. After this transaction, the operation will be known as Adhesives Specialists, A Division of EUKALIN Corp.
“In addition to shortening cycle times for our customers, this acquisition offers a significant growth opportunity for us in North America,” said Mike Frost, EUKALIN’s North American sales leader for the envelope and traditional EUKALIN market segments. “Driven by the growth we have experienced over the last two to three years, adding U.S.-based manufacturing capacity was our next logical step.”
