From Humble Beginnings in Michigan , USA...
Established as the Adhesive Development Chemical Operation in 1971, ADCO started its first ever production facility in Michigan Center, Michigan (USA) with a limited set of sealants offerings to the automotive, maritime and architectural industries. Fast forward to see how the company evolved. A series of strategic acquisitions and technical breakthroughs allowed ADCO to build major positions in markets that are reliant on advanced sealants, adhesives and structural tapes to manufacture or install end products with complex bonding requirements.
Today, more than 200 ADCO products deployed in the roofing, solar, transportation and construction markets offer high value-in-use along with unparalleled performance properties. Core competencies in polysulfides, polyisobutylene (PIB), polyurethane chemistry, solvent-free urethanes, acrylics, silicones and butyls reflect ADCO's comprehensive ability to produce market-leading, differentiated technologies.
