Adhesive manufacturer Bostik to buy Nordmeccanica industrial laminator

Bostik, a French adhesive manufacturing company owned by Arkema, has signed a purchase contract with Italian lamination machines supplier Nordmeccanica for an industrial laminator.

According to Bostik, the acquisition will strengthen its global research and development (R&D) efforts on flexible lamination and diversify its offering of sustainable smart adhesive solutions further.

According to Bostik, the equipment will be located within its Shanghai R&D center. It will mostly cater to the flexible packaging converting industry, that offers adhesive solutions for fast moving consumer goods, food and beverage, pharma and industrial applications across the Asia Pacific region.

The equipment is expected to enable Bostik provide higher-quality, more sustainable and innovative adhesive solutions to customers across Asia Pacific and across the globe. The adhesive solutions include solvent-free solutions, low monomer solutions, as well as solutions that meet the rising demand for monomaterial packaging among others.

Furthermore, the equipment will allow the French adhesive manufacturing company to replicate the exact manufacturing processes its customers use.

The laminater will also help strengthen Bostik’s Flex Pack Academy, a knowledge center that focuses on flexible lamination and adhesive solutions.
