The range has been designed for use in the composites and foundry industries, and comprises more than 100 products, including polyurethane and epoxy boards for styling, modelmaking and tooling – as well as specialist resin systems, close contour materials and reaction injection moulding.
The addition of this new tooling line marks a subtle change in direction for Ellsworth Adhesives, since it is the first product range of its kind to feature in the distributor’s catalogue.
Managing director John Henderson commented: “In this challenging marketplace, we must innovate to remain competitive and ensure continued growth. Our diversification into tooling opens us up to new markets, yet the product offering remains complementary to our core business – the supply of materials and dispensing equipment. We are eager to see how this new division will develop in the coming months and years and we are hopeful of a prosperous future.”
With the European Tooling sector enjoying an annual average turnover of $13bn, Ellsworth Adhesives is entering a lucrative market. Ensuring it is well positioned to service its demands, the distributor recently welcomed two new technical sales engineers into its team. Paul Moore and Graham Flanagan have a combined 70 years in the industry, giving them invaluable knowledge and experience.
The new range of tooling products is being marketed as ‘Ellsworth Tooling Solutions’ and is available for online purchase via the Ellsworth Adhesives website.
