SCIGRIP (Durham, NC) has completed the acquisition of Glue Boss Inc., the Indiana-based manufacturer of StoneBond and other high performance surfacing adhesives. Glue Boss will join Integra Adhesives in the SCIGRIP family, a provider of adhesive solutions for use in marine, transportation, product assembly and building & construction markets.

SCIGRIP’s purchase of Glue Boss represents a strategic step in the company’s long-term growth plan to supply high quality, innovative products to the stone and solid surface industry and will provide significant benefits for new and existing customers of both organizations. 

The Glue Boss name will remain, with products available for order through the current Glue Boss and SCIGRIP distribution outlets. Manufacturing will remain in Indiana for the immediate future, but will eventually move to SCIGRIP.

“We are excited to welcome Glue Boss into the SCIGRIP and IPS family and to continue its tradition of excellence in delivering high quality, innovative products for the surfacing industry. Together with Glue Boss, SCIGRIP will be even better positioned to serve our valued customers and improve our surfacing product offerings, especially in the stone marketplace,” says John Reeves, president of SCIGRIP.
