April 6, 2009

The acquisition adds new formulations to the company’s flexible packaging adhesive portfolio.

H.B. Fuller Company (NYSE: FUL), of St. Paul, MN, USA, has acquired Nordic Adhesives Technology of Buxtehude, Germany. The acquisition gives Fuller a wide range of flexible packaging adhesives, ranging from general purpose to high performance solventless, water based, solvent and hot melt heat seal formulations.

"We have been strategically committed to developing innovative flexible packaging adhesives for nearly 20 years,” says Brendon Kryzer, global director of flexible packaging for HB Fuller. “With our technically advanced solventless and water based adhesives, we help our customers achieve unprecedented throughput and the specific bond strength and heat, humidity and chemical resistance needed for their applications. With the Nordic acquisition, we are significantly expanding our flexible packaging technology and experience.”

Nordic’s laminating adhesives complement HB Fuller’s existing line. Additional new and innovative Nordic formulations include solventless systems with wide ranging capabilities including biodegradable laminates, high performance aliphatic solvent based systems, and adhesive solutions for high barrier films.

“We are very enthusiastic about joining HB Fuller to leverage our flexible packaging adhesive expertise for customers worldwide,” says Manfred Römer, co-founder of Nordic with Leif Porsberg.
