ADCO Global Divests Auto Replacement Glass Adhesives Business

March 8, 2010

ADCO Global announced today the sale of its North American automotive replacement glass (ARG) adhesives business to Sika Corporation.  The sale includes assets and customer relationships dedicated to ADCO’s ARG business, in addition to the expected transfer of certain members of ADCO’s sales staff to new positions with Sika.
