H.B. Fuller Acquires Business of Sanglier Limited in the UK

H.B. Fuller Company has acquired the business of UK-based Sanglier Limited, one of Europe’s largest independently owned manufacturers and fillers of sprayable (aerosol and canister) industrial adhesives.

The company reports that the acquisition expands H.B. Fuller’s innovation capabilities and product portfolio across the UK and Europe, particularly in the Construction Adhesives and Engineering Adhesives businesses, complementing technologies obtained through the acquisitions of Apollo and Fourny and spray capabilities acquired and developed in the United States.

“Transforming adhesive applications to enable sprayable delivery provides end users with an opportunity to greatly improve labor efficiency. This is particularly valuable in today’s tight labor market and is a key megatrend that H.B. Fuller is applying its unique innovation capabilities toward to enable our customers’ success,” says Boz Malik, senior vice president, H.B. Fuller Construction Adhesives.

“Sanglier shares a similar business model, which includes providing customized, high-quality solutions to support and develop our customers’ brands. This acquisition will strengthen the integration of our adhesive manufacturing and packaging capabilities, which we will leverage to generate a strong market advantage in terms of operations, innovation, and service.”

The team of nearly 60 employees will operate within H.B. Fuller’s existing Construction Adhesives global business unit.
