According to a press statement, the acquisition is expected to accelerate profitable growth in many of H.B. Fuller’s core end markets and generate business synergies through production optimisation, an expanded distribution platform, and difference-making innovation. Beardow Adams generated approximately EUR 130 million in revenue for the 2022 fiscal year. With a team of 200 employees globally, the company will operate within H.B. Fuller’s existing Hygiene, Health, and Consumable Adhesives global business unit.

“Stronger force in the adhesives industry”

“Combining the two companies is an exciting move toward H.B. Fuller’s goal of strengthening our leadership position in the markets and regions we serve by expanding our customer base and technology portfolio to address today’s megatrends, such as e-commerce, food safety, and sustainability,” said Jim East, executive vice president, Hygiene, Health, and Consumable Adhesives. “As we combine our businesses, we will be a stronger force in the adhesives industry.”
