Epoxy Technology, Inc.® and John P. Kummer group announce a new specialty adhesive packaging company - Epoxy Technology Europe Ltd
Epoxy Technology, Inc, a leading manufacturer of high performance specialty adhesives and John P Kummer Group, an established distributor of instruments and materials for the Microelectronics and related industries, announce the formation of a new specialty adhesive packaging company, Epoxy Technology Europe Ltd (ETEL).
This new company (ETEL) formerly a division of John P Kummer Ltd, is now majority share owned by Epoxy Technology, Inc. Apart from the company name change, customers will not see any changes in the syringe products they receive. The closer relationship with the actual adhesive manufacturer will only result in continued stability for customers across Europe.
Located in Marlborough, UK, John P Kummer Ltd founded this packaging services division in 2010 to service European customers in their growing demand to have EPO-TEK® brand products more readily & locally available in pre-mixed frozen syringe format (PMFs) for their assembly & manufacturing needs.
According to Andrew Horne, President and COO for Epoxy Technology, Inc., “This ISO certified packaging facility is a welcome addition to our Epoxy offerings in Europe. Our customers have come to rely on us, not only for the quality of our specially formulated adhesives, but also in the skills needed to re-package our products to meet and exceed strict manufacturing requirements. The longstanding commitment to quality and customer satisfaction in the packaging division at JP Kummer Ltd made our decision to expand into packaging in Europe, through this investment, an easy one.”
Rex Sandbach, Founder and Managing Director of John P Kummer Ltd states “We at John P Kummer are very proud of our achievements in developing a facility capable of supplying the most demanding needs of our customers and welcome the endorsement of our efforts by the significant investment Epoxy Technology made in this business.”
This state-of-the-art European site complements Epoxy Technology’s packaging efforts worldwide to address the ever increasing and exacting packaging parameters critical to our customer’s innovative design and manufacturability requirements.
