HB Fuller opened new offices in Pune in March 2017 and a new R&D facility at its Shirwal manufacturing plant in India. The milestone marks the completion of a phase in HB Fuller’s plans for expansion on the subcontinent for which $20 million has been earmarked. The company has been active in India since 2011 with a large manufacturing center at Shirwal about 65km outside Pune itself.  The company says its new business offices and R&D center will boost innovation and improve its service offering in the region.

The business center provides office space for 50 employees working in administration and customer support. The R&D facility is an extension of the plant at Shirwal and offers areas that have been purpose-designed to conduct trials, demonstrate products, and train clients in the application of water-based, anaerobic, hot-melt and cyanoacrylate technologies. Its proximity to the production area will facilitate collaboration between production and research teams.
