Techsil acquires adhesive supplier Glueline

Adhesive and sealant supplier Techsil has announced the acquisition of Essex-based adhesive stockist and distributor Glueline Ltd.

The new ranges joining the Techsil portfolio include structural adhesives from Permabond, Araldite and SCIGRIP which comprise of toughened acrylics, anaerobics, cyanoacrylates, single part and two art epoxies, methyl methacrylates and MS polymers.

"Glueline limited has been servicing the UK manufacturing sector with structural adhesives for over 20 years," said Techsil Chairman Paul Hughes. "I'm delighted to be adding this successful adhesives business into our group. Glueline's product range dovetails nicely with Techsil's current adhesives portfolio.

"Glueline has some excellent customer and supplier partnerships, and as part of a bigger entity, we will be able to provide all of our group customers a wider portfolio of products and all our supply partners with a broader range of customers. This is our third acquisition in the last 10 years and the company continues to go from strength to strength."

Last month, Techsil added Hylomar's range of high performance non-setting gasket and jointing compounds to its portfolio, and in May 2017, acquired Aerospace and Defence industry supplier, M-tec. The two companies have now fully merged and M-tec is trading under the Techsil banner.
