There are three major work processes where customers specify new adhesives – the creation of a new product, the improvement of a current product, and the development of a new way to manufacture a product. And, our market experts get excited about all three. They partner directly with our customers’ technologists and engineers who lead and drive those decisions to bring their innovations to market.
This is the heart of innovation at H.B. Fuller. Innovative thinking at H.B. Fuller is about leveraging our expertise to find opportunities in the markets we serve. It allows us to find those fantastic customer needs and then collaborate with them to design game-changing adhesive solutions.
