ESTABLISED IN 1996
Direct Adhesives was formed in 1996 by Simon Walker, formerly of National Adhesives Limited. We started by distributing high performance industrial adhesives to many of National’s small to medium packaging, bookbinding and woodworking customers. National Adhesives were later taken over by Henkel. Between us we have over 100 years’ adhesive experience!
We are also a master distributor for Power Adhesives, manufacturers of the premium quality TEC glue guns, application equipment and TECBOND shaped hot melt adhesive.
START OF MANUFACTURING
In 2001 we acquired Latex & Adhesives of Coventry, a well-known producer of water-based adhesives for the converting and woodworking industries and latex adhesive supplier. Being able to manufacture gave us the extra flexibility some of our customers needed. Our manufacturing continues at our Coventry site.
NEW BIGGER WAREHOUSE
In September 2005 we moved from our original leased unit in Aylesbury and we bought a new 14,000 square feet warehouse in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.
In 2011 we took over Wey Adhesives, supplier of a variety of adhesives including straw and felt stiffeners for the millinery trade.
CONTINUOUS GROWTH AND SUCCESS
Here at Direct we have enjoyed continuous sales growth every year since our formation back in 1996. We believe we are the fastest growing adhesives distributor in the UK. This has been achieved by the hard work of our loyal and dedicated team, our unique market and product knowledge and our total commitment to ensuring our customers are completely satisfied with what we do.
