HB Fuller to close six adhesives sites in US, Canada

April 23/2012

(hydrocarbonprocessing) -- HB Fuller will close six manufacturing facilities and eliminate approximately 130 positions across its North America adhesives business segment as part of its integration of the recently-acquired industrial adhesives business of Forbo Group. The closures will occur by mid-2013, the company says.

HB Fuller will close six manufacturing facilities and eliminate approximately 130 positions across its North America adhesives business segment as part of its integration of the recently-acquired business of Forbo Group.

HB Fuller described the move as an opportunity to eliminate duplication in manufacturing and redundant services and to harmonize raw material procurement.

Fuller said it is continuing its integration assessment work in the Europe, India Middle East and Africa (EIMEA) and Asia Pacific regions and, upon completion of the analysis in the coming months, could announce changes to the organizational structures in those regions.


The facilities scheduled for closure by mid-2013 are: Pointe-Claire, Quebec; Morris, Ill.; Kansas City, Kan.; Eugene, Ore.; Jackson, Tenn.; and Dallas, Texas.

These facility closures will be staggered over the next 15 months and will result in approximately 90 job eliminations.

HB Fuller will consolidate its North America adhesives business segment operations within its remaining US facilities in California, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Texas and Washington, it said.
