The two companies will showcase how their combined expertise and complementary range of technologies helps packaging manufacturers save energy, reduce waste, enable lightweight packaging, and create recycling and reuse strategies. A comprehensive line of sustainable packaging adhesives and tapes that contribute to advancing the circular economy will be on display, with primary applications including packaging reinforcement, case and carton sealing, beverage labelling, paper straws, e-commerce, flexible materials, and easy-opening containers, among others.

Acquisition in late 2022

H.B. Fuller acquired Lemtapes in late 2022 to add specialised market knowledge, expand regional capacity and strengthen business synergies across Finland and throughout Europe, enhancing industry applications and strong customer relationships. This strategic fit between the two integrated manufacturers is expected to bring broad solutions, new equipment technology, and innovation benefits to the packaging industry. Together, they want to offer a higher level of service and deliver high-performance adhesive-coated tapes and sustainable complementary product portfolios for improved business efficiency, and a reduced environmental footprint.
