Bostik is among the world's largest adhesives and sealants manufacturers with production facilities (many of which are ISO-9001 & QS-9000 Certified) and sales operations in 41 nations across five continents. Bostik produces and supplies customized adhesives, sealants and coatings for automotive and aircraft interiors, MRO applications, the marine and transportation markets, industrial and product manufacturing, packaging, disposable nonwovens/ hygiene, residential and commercial construction markets, as well as a comprehensive line of flooring installation products serving the entire flooring industry.
In December, 2004, Bostik, Inc. became the official name replacing the former name Bostik Findley, Inc. The earlier merger of Bostik and Ato Findley brought together two organizations rich with history. From it’s beginning, Bostik built its success on innovative adhesive technologies for manufacturing. Founded in the late 19th Century as the Boston Blacking Company, renamed as B.B. Chemical in 1950 and formally becoming Bostik in 1972, the company was a pioneer in the development of adhesives for the emerging footwear industry.
Bostik is known for "smart adhesives" and provides them to various industries: Building & Construction, Automotive, Transportation & Aerospace, Packaging & Lamination, Tape & Label, Assembly, and Disposable Hygiene.
The product solutions cover a wide gamut of adhesives, sealants, and Special Anti-Seize Pipe Compounds.
