HOUSTON (ICIS news)--Royal Adhesives and Sealants has relocated all its epoxy and urethane adhesives product lines from New Jersey to Indiana, the company said on Monday.

The company ramped up to full operations in March at its expanded South Bend facility in Indiana and closed down the Belleville plant in New Jersey, said chief executive Ted Clark.

South Bend is a great location for us because we can ship more economically to our customers located throughout the United States and Canada, and it provides attractive investment credit incentives to build our business into the future,” Clark said.

With bulk storage for raw materials such as epoxy resin and castor oil, the plant could operate more efficiently, he added.

Royal invested $4.3m (€3.2m) in expansions at the South Bend site over the past year, including additional manufacturing, warehouse and product development space, ti said.

The company’s major end-markets include automotive, filtration such as reverse osmosis equipment, and repair and maintenance adhesives.
