SCIGRIP, a global manufacturer of specialty methacrylate adhesives, has acquired Glue Boss Incorporated, the Indiana based manufacturer of StoneBond and other high performance surfacing adhesives. Glue Boss will join Integra Adhesives in the SCIGRIP family, a market leading provider of Smarter Adhesive Solutions for use in marine, transportation, product assembly and building & construction markets.
Headquartered in Elkhart, Indiana, Glue Boss is an established name in the manufacture and supply of surfacing adhesives with its respected SeamPro, SeamBoss and StoneBond brands, well known for high strength and reliable bonding of quartz, granite, marble, sintered stone, porcelain and acrylic surfaces.
SCIGRIP’s purchase of Glue Boss represents a strategic step in the company’s long term growth plan to supply high quality, innovative products to the stone and solid surface industry and will provide significant benefits for new and existing customers of both organisations.
The Glue Boss name will remain, with products available for order through the current Glue Boss and SCIGRIP distribution outlets. Manufacturing will remain in Indiana for the immediate future, but will eventually move to SCIGRIP.
“We are excited to welcome Glue Boss into the SCIGRIP and IPS family and to continue its tradition of excellence in delivering high quality, innovative products for the surfacing industry. Together with Glue Boss, SCIGRIP will be even better positioned to serve our valued customers and improve our surfacing product offerings, especially in the stone marketplace.” John Reeves, President, SCIGRIP.
