ST. PAUL, MN -- H.B. Fuller Co. is now offering a unique adhesive and equipment system for the packaging industry utilizing its recently acquired Liquamelt® adhesive technology. To provide specialized fluid handling equipment that will pump, process and dispense Liquamelt adhesive, H.B. Fuller has partnered with Graco Inc. The adhesive and equipment system has been tested extensively with customers and will be demonstrated to the packaging industry for the first time at PACK EXPO 2011, September 26-28.
"I am pleased to announce this partnership with Graco," said Jim Owens, President and CEO of H.B. Fuller. "This new delivery equipment, designed specifically for H.B. Fuller's Liquamelt adhesive solution, will enable us to help our customers drive cost and complexity from their processes. We look forward to many years of collaboration as we continue to commercialize this unique, new adhesive technology."
Since acquiring Liquamelt Corp., based in Lorain, OH, and its Liquamelt adhesive and dispensing system last April, H.B. Fuller further developed the relationship already established with Graco. By combining the strength of its 125 years of adhesive knowledge with Graco's strong equipment development experience, H.B. Fuller now offers a completely unique system for its packaging customers to help them address emerging business needs, employ sustainable solutions and achieve greater efficiencies.
