Description of business:
Elmer's Products, Inc. provides creative adhesive solutions that support project success and turn ideas into reality. It is the trusted brand when it comes to fueling creativity and providing outstanding product performance in the classroom, at home, in the workshop and at the craft table.
The company was originally part of the Borden® Company, which introduced the first consumer white glue in 1947. Under the trade name "Cascorez Glue," the glue was packaged in glass bottles with "ice cream pop" type wooden sticks attached with a rubber band. Shortly thereafter, the glue was repositioned under the name "Elmer's Glue-All" after Elmer, the spouse of Borden's famed corporate symbol, Elsie the cow.
Today, Elmer's produces a variety of products developed with a dedication to quality and innovation. They range from adhesives, arts and crafts, educational and office products for use at home, school or business. Elmer's also markets the number one instant adhesive in the U.S., Instant Krazy Glue®, and X-ACTO®, a leader in innovative cutting blades, knives and office supply products.
