Scott Bader ATC, a global chemical company based in Canada, has begun manufacturing and supplying Crestabond· structural adhesives to its North American customers.
After months of installation and testing, the first batch of Crestabond M1 structural adhesive has been successfully produced and delivered, which is a historic moment for Scott Bader.
The expansion of Crestabond· production will allow the company to meet the growing demand for their high-quality MMA primerless structural adhesives within the North American market. It will also significantly reduce transport emissions and delivery times, helping the company to deliver a faster, more efficient service for its customers with less environmental impact.
The initial production at Scott Bader ATC will focus on the innovative Crestabond· M1 series of 10:1 structural adhesives, suitable for bonding a range of substrates including composites, thermoplastics, and metals. The range benefits from varying working times to suit a host of applications in multiple industries including marine, automotive, wind energy and construction.
“Adding Crestabond production to our site is really exciting. It will allow us to serve our North American customers more efficiently and with significantly less environmental impact,” Pierre Parenteau, site manager at Scott Bader ATC. “A huge thank you to Scott Bader colleagues in Canada and around the group who have worked tirelessly to make this possible.”
Scott Bader invests in North America
The expansion of Crestabond production to Scott Bader ATC follows the news that Scott Bader has invested $16m in a new production site in Mocksville, North Carolina.
The investment sees the acquisition of a 110,000 square foot industrial unit on a 15-acre site, which with further investment will be developed into a state-of-the-art gelcoat and structural adhesives manufacturing facility. It will be the company’s second North American manufacturing site; the new development is expected to create 27 new jobs locally, with 21 in manufacturing and the other roles shared across HR, R&D, commercial support and applications.
