ST PAUL, US: H B Fuller Company said that it broke ground on its future manufacturing facility in Surabaya, Indonesia. This future facility will strengthen H B Fuller’s network in Asia Pacific region and will complement products and technical service of the company’s manufacturing facilities in China, Philippines, Malaysia and Australia.

The company anticipates production of hot melt and water-based adhesives products to begin in the second quarter of 2016. This increased capacity in the region will enable the company to consistently meet local customers’ requirements and grow significantly in Southeast Asia, particularly Indonesia.

“This future manufacturing facility is an excellent example of how we will leverage our global reach and technical knowledge to empower local experts. Today, we mark an important milestone in our commitment to deliver value to our customers in Asia, enhance our competitive position and continue making investments in the capabilities necessary to support our long-term growth strategy,” said Jim Owens, president and chief executive officer, H B Fuller.

From this new site, H B Fuller will provide adhesive solutions to customers in the hygiene, packaging, woodworking, filter, product assembly, container labelling and other durable assembly industries.
