Adhesives Research is your expert developer and manufacturer of high-performance adhesives, tapes, specialty films, coatings, laminates, release liners and drug delivery technologies. We are committed to provide adhesive design flexibility by partnering with our customers, offering fast development capabilities, and delivering unique turn-key solutions. Established in 1961, AR’s modest beginnings originated in a converted garage to develop specialty adhesive-coated materials and processing equipment to meet the evolving needs of the graphics arts label market. Through several moves and expansions, AR grew significantly, continuing to add new capabilities and technologies that enabled the company to address the unmet needs of new markets. Rapid growth led to facility expansions in the USA, South America (1980), Europe (1999) and Asia (2000). With our global headquarters in Glen Rock, PA, and regional headquarter Limerick, Ireland, today the company’s facilities span over 250 acres, cover over 300,000+ square feet of development and manufacturing space, and employ approximately 300 associates.
