Dallas/USA – The opening of the new facility follows recent plant inaugurations in India, Malaysia and Brazil and will complement Bostik’s manufacturing presence in the United States. The tiling and floor preparation products being manufactured at the facility are based on Bostik’s world-class Polymer Modified Binder (PMB) technology platform which remains a focus of its ongoing innovation, research and development activities.

The highly automated design of the facility will offer a positive impact on safety, quality and productivity. In addition to production, the Dallas location also offers a state-of-the-art onsite training and demonstration facility. Customers will be fully educated on how to use Bostik products by using them hands-on, and will see how they are produced in one location. Training events geared toward contractors, distributors, specifiers and all other industry partners will be scheduled to occur on a regular basis.
