The new facility has been introduced to improve the existing production provision. By bolstering its infrastructure locally, Scott Bader seeks to meet growing international demand for its structural adhesives - products which are of particular interest to specialty markets, including the automotive industry.

The company, which has been based in the county since the early 1940s, employs around 300 people regionally and marked its centenary year this April.

"Sustainability was also at the heart of the decision"

Commenting on the recent addition to the portfolio, Deklyn Barnes, Adhesive Product Manager for Scott Bader said: “We’re delighted to be enhancing our production capabilities locally. Improving production was key to meeting our market demands but sustainability was also at the heart of the decision and this investment will help us to make improvements in this area too.”
