As cited by Homeland Security, securing the global supply chain and ensuring its smooth functioning is essential to our country’s prosperity. Given recent natural disasters and attacks, supply security seems more urgent and important now than ever.
Take a look at how we do our part at Bostik to give customers supply security and peace of mind when it comes to our adhesives.
Global Formulation Capabilities
Bostik’s formulation capabilities allow us to manufacture products in various parts of the globe. In addition to being able to service customers worldwide, this capability enables us to supply other regions with products should the need arise. As a result, our numerous production sites greatly reduce the risk of supply disruption.
By having global manufacturing facilities, Bostik is able to understand and meet region-specific regulatory requirements. Additionally, our global outlook allows us to maximize production efficiencies in terms of low cost manufacturing and availability of regional raw materials.
Furthermore, we locate plants globally in a strategic effort to benefit local economies and minimize tariffs.
Automation allows Bostik to maximize production efficiency and get greater volume out of existing facilities. This, in turn, enables us to optimize our regional production capacity while also having spare capacity should the need arise to supply other regions. Additionally, we are able to do this without having excessive personnel overhead costs.
Diverse Raw Material Sourcing
The ability to use raw materials around the globe allows us to maximize supply security and take advantage of local cost efficiencies. Bostik also works to improve the quality of local raw material suppliers to meet the high performance demands of global brands.
