HB Fuller Company broke ground on its manufacturing facility in Surabaya, Indonesia. This facility will strengthen the company’s network in the Asia Pacific region and will complement the products and technical service offered today by the company’s manufacturing facilities in China, the Philippines, Malaysia and Australia.
"This future manufacturing facility is an excellent example of how we will leverage our global reach and technical knowledge to empower local experts,” said Jim Owens, HB Fuller President and Chief Executive Officer. "Today, we mark an important milestone in our commitment to deliver value to our customers in Asia, enhance our competitive position and continue making investments in the capabilities necessary to support our long-term growth strategy.”
