Introducing Power Adhesives

We are Power Adhesives, Europe’s leading manufacturer of shaped hot melt adhesives and applicators.

What we do

Working from our manufacturing facility in Essex, we strive to improve the performance and application of hot melt adhesives for users around the world.

With nearly 50 years’ experience, we have established ourselves at the forefront of the hot melt adhesives industry, building a strong reputation and recognisable brand within our sector.

We are the only manufacturer that produces a full hot melt adhesive system, with our glue guns and adhesives designed to work in perfect partnership with each other, ensuring maximum efficiency and the highest possible performance for the user. Our products are sold into a range of sectors, including construction, woodworking, packaging, product assembly, automotive, composites, DIY, and hobby.

Our history

Power Adhesives began life as a distributor of hot melt glue guns and adhesives in the 1970s, but we quickly recognised the potential of emerging hot melt technology and moved to become a manufacturer in 1981.

Since then, we have positioned ourselves as innovators in the hot melt industry, pioneering inventions such as sprayable hot melts, polyamide adhesives, 43mm adhesive glue cartridges and temperature control systems on all our glue guns.

Our ethos

To remain at the forefront of the industry, our research and development team are committed to a program of constant improvement and innovation across our product portfolio.

As a company, we’re committed to reducing our impact on the environment and continue to investigate how we can manufacture more sustainable and energy-efficient products.

We believe in forming strong, lasting relationships with all of our distribution partners. Their specialist knowledge and feedback mean we can continue to develop new products to best suit the needs of the end user.

Power Adhesives’ continued innovation and growth is all thanks to our hardworking, committed team. All staff members are equipped to provide the best possible service, from our friendly and helpful sales teams, right through to our production teams, who make all of our products with care and efficiency. We’re also an equal opportunities employer, and are passionate that all our staff have the ability to develop and grow within our company.
