Arkema announces the acquisition by Bostik of LIP Bygningsartikler AS (LIP), the Danish leader in tile adhesives, waterproofing systems and floor preparation solutions. Leveraging its strong brand, LIP is a first-class player in the Scandinavian market, recognized by construction professionals for its high-quality products.
With Born2Bond™, Bostik brings a new range of innovative engineering adhesives designed for ‘by-the-dot’ bonding applications in selected industries, such as automotive, electronics, luxury packaging, medical devices, and MRO.
Bostik stays ahead of industry trends with the introduction of laminating PU adhesives free of GLYMO and other substances of concern.
In the presence of Vincent Legros, Chairman & CEO of Bostik, the Regional Senior Vice Presidents of Bostik and Arkema, and Nara’s officials, a Shinto ground breaking ceremony (called ‘Jichin-sai’) has been organized in order to purify the future plant under the protection of local guardian god.
