How Meridian Adhesives Group Acquisition Will Help Evans Adhesives


Evans Adhesive has new capabilities in bringing high-quality adhesives to the world. Thanks to our recent acquisition by Meridian Adhesives Group, Evans will be better positioned to maintain our role as a leader in the adhesives industry.

Meridian has moved quickly in the latter half of 2018 to acquire several adhesives companies. As a whole, the company portfolio presents capabilities in high-performance specialty epoxy, polyurethane, and hybrid adhesives for the electronics, medical, construction, and infrastructure markets.

As we’ve pointed out in recent blog posts, the ability to serve multiple, diverse market sectors is crucial in the modern adhesives market. Emerging sectors around the world are driving adhesive industry growth, and responding quickly to these market trends will be key to success.

Meridian’s twin focus on hybrid adhesives and adhesive technology, in particular, aligns well with what we do well. For instance, our metallocene adhesives offer an advanced solution to numerous issues within hot melt applications, as does our versatile ReliaSeal product.

Going forward, we’re excited to continue our work developing hardworking adhesives products under the umbrella of the Meridian Adhesives Group. We’re confident our shared focus on innovation and emerging trends will be an asset to our existing and future customers.
