Bostik opens new adhesives plant in India

PARIS, FRANCE: Bostik SA, an Arkema company, said that it has extended its hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives (HMPSA) production capacities with the opening of a new plant, at its manufacturing facility in Bangalore, India.

The development will particularly enhance Bostik’s ability to serve customers in the disposable hygiene sector. Working with global manufacturers of baby diapers, feminine hygiene and adult incontinence products, Bostik supplies solutions for demanding applications including elastic attachment, wetness indication and stretch.

“We are pleased to continue Bostik’s expansion in fast-growing economies with the extension of our facilities in Bangalore, India. Development in high growth geographic markets remains one of the central components of Bostik’s future growth strategy and this new facility will ensure we maintain our close ties with customers in India while meeting the growing demands of this important market,” said Jeffrey Merkt, senior vice president, Asia, Bostik.

A cross-regional approach was adopted to design the plant with engineering and operations expertise from other Bostik HMPSA production sites heavily utilised. Its features include a fully automated packing operation ensuring the quality and efficiency required by customers in the disposable hygiene sector.

The new plant in India represents the latest milestone in the Bostik group’s international expansion following recent plant openings in China, Malaysia and Brazil.
