Adhesive Products for Today & Tomorrow

Evans Adhesive Corporation was founded in 1900 and incorporated in 1902 as The Commercial Paste Company. It has been in the Evans family since 1920. Being in business for more than 110 years is the best testament we can provide of our experience, our financial strength and stability, the quality of our products, and our commitment to total customer service.

Evans is one of America’s leading manufacturers of industrial adhesives. With headquarters centrally located in Columbus, Ohio, and additional manufacturing facilities Rancho Cucamonga, California, we are situated to quickly meet the needs of most of the nation’s major industries.

From simple beginnings, Evans has moved aggressively into a new century of research-driven product development…and to the forefront of the adhesives industry.

At Evans, we pride ourselves in the dedication of our Customer Service Representatives, the experience of our Sales Staff, the expertise and availability of our Technical Service personnel, and the innovation of our Research & Development Staff.

Operating under the direction of President Rusty Thompson, Evans continues to defy the stereotype of a “glue factory.” Our outstanding reputation in the chemical industry, our emphasis on customer satisfaction, and the high quality of our products have made the Evans name a cornerstone of the Adhesives industry.

More than a decade into the 21st century, Evans Adhesive Corporation continues to prepare for ambitious growth and expansion. As we grow, we will continue our corporate commitment to service, quality, and performance by supplying adhesive products that work, and focusing on the needs of our customers. From our line of pressure-sensitive hot melts, polyamides, APAO, EVA packaging hot melts, various water-based adhesives, palletizing adhesives, and adhesives for the Graphic Arts and Outdoor Advertising Industries, Evans can supply all of your adhesive requirements now and in the future.
