10 Haziran 2021

With the planned acquisition of Edge Adhesives Texas, a complementary asset in hot-melt adhesives and pressure sensitive adhesive tapes for residential construction, Bostik increases its high-performance adhesives solutions in the United States.

This initiative fits in with Arkema’s strategy of bolt-on acquisitions to extend its adhesives portfolio and supply new products to meet growing demand.

Edge Adhesives Texas is a leading developer and manufacturer of innovative adhesive solutions used in residential buildings with annual sales of around US$12 million. The company, which operates a plant in Fort Worth, Texas (US) and has approximately 50 employees, specializes in custom formulations in fast-growing easy-install window, door and roofing applications.

In addition to delivering strong technological, industrial and commercial synergies, the project will enable Bostik to offer its customers an extended range of value-added and sustainable solutions in hot-melt pressure sensitive adhesives.

This bolt-on acquisition is in line with Bostik’s growth strategy in high value-added adhesives and expands its presence in North America.

The deal is expected to close in second-quarter 2021.
