Introducing our new CEO – Brendan Colgan

Power Adhesives is delighted to introduce its new CEO, Brendan Colgan.

Brendan will be taking the company forward into its next phase of growth, drawing on his previous experience working in a range of global manufacturing and engineering markets. He has led market-leading companies offering technical solutions in air and gas handling, metal fabrication, fluid and motion control, and technical plastics.

The voice of the customer will be driving our agenda, with Brendan saying: “Power Adhesives is a company with a reputation for delivering technical solutions and agility in meeting customer needs”.

“I’m looking forward to meeting our distributors and customers to gain a full understanding of the current and emerging market needs and how Power’s capabilities can be developed to meet those expectations. Having both lived and worked internationally for over 20 years in demanding business environments, I am looking forward to bringing that experience and knowledge to Power Adhesives’ team.“

In his previous roles, a focus on new product and process development – to meet critical market trends – has delivered growth in both mature and developing markets. With experience in a diverse range of end markets including packaging, energy, automotive, ship-building, life sciences, consumer and professional appliances, Brendan has the experience to help shape Power’s product development and customer experience to deliver growth.

‘Power Adhesives is a specialised UK-based manufacturer with good international exposure, and it’s a leader in its chosen markets,’ he said. ‘I’m excited about the challenge of how we can take Power Adhesives to a new level of growth.’

Power Adhesives manufactures the largest range of industrial glue guns and high performance shaped hot melt adhesives at its Basildon plant in the UK. Its products are sold through a network of specialist distributors around the world under the tec and tecbond brand names.

With almost 50 years’ industry experience, Power Adhesives is able to offer expert help on all aspects of commercial gluing operations using hot melt adhesives.
