H.B. Fuller has launched a new range of Professional Grade MRO — maintenance, repair, and operations — industrial adhesives, sealants, and lubricants. The products will be available under the Gorilla Professional Grade line, also known as GorillaPro, in the United States and Canada.
The Gorilla Professional Grade portfolio consists of 19 products, which include threadlockers, epoxies, metal pipe-fitting assembly sealants, retaining compounds, anti-seize, gasketing, and instant adhesives.
These chemical tools also will have a user-friendly, color-coded, application identification system, and easy-to-use, innovative packaging specifically designed for the MRO Industrial professional.
This is the first product launch since The Gorilla Glue Company LLC granted H.B. Fuller an exclusive, trademark license agreement, effective March 1, 2020. Teams from each company have worked closely together to create a professional-grade of MRO Industrial chemical tools.
Furthermore, H.B. Fuller has partnered with R.S. Hughes Company, Inc., MSC Industrial Supply Company and Krayden Inc. to reach MRO professionals in a range of industrial markets across the U.S. and Canada. Customers will be able to obtain GorillaPro products through these distributors’ e-commerce platforms, as well as their local distribution warehouses, pick-up counters and daily delivery options.
“With this partnership, H.B. Fuller now has the optimal product portfolio to fulfill many of the MRO Industrial market’s unmet needs. Our unique professional chemical tools for repair, installation and maintenance enable reliable and efficient operation of manufacturing equipment and other heavy machinery,” said Scott Pergande, global director of Product Management and Marketing for H.B. Fuller’s Engineering Adhesives business unit.
The new range of Gorilla Professional Grade MRO Industrial products includes a variety of single-use, easy-to-mix epoxies and signature instant adhesives’ soft round bottles and clog-free dispense tips, as well as anaerobic gel pump packaging for easier use and handheld dispensing.
“Today’s announcement further extends our ability to provide premium, high-quality products directly to MRO Industrial customers across the U.S. and Canada,” said Pete Biocini, president and CEO, R.S. Hughes Company, Inc. “We believe the GorillaPro brand will resonate well with the current and new generation of production, maintenance, facility and purchasing professionals coming into prominence in our industry today.”
All Gorilla Professional Grade products and packaging in the portfolio are designed to ensure plant uptime and mechanical equipment reliability, while helping professional maintenance personnel with best-in-class tools.
