H.B. Fuller has officially opened its Lüneburg Adhesive Academy in Germany, which will help its customers respond more quickly and effectively to market trends, industry challenges and opportunities.

The centre is also Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified to Gold level, making it the first laboratory building in Germany to achieve this standard.

In addition, the company is making efforts to minimise its environmental impact by improving the environmental performance of buildings and building activities, which has become a key factor in achieving global climate and sustainability goals.

H.B. Fuller’s president and CEO Jim Owens said: "Our new adhesive academy is a perfect example of what we mean by ‘connecting what matters’. It brings together everything necessary to connect customers to innovative adhesive solutions that will give them a competitive edge.

"We are providing experts with first-class offices, laboratories, technical facilities and machinery to ensure they have the best possible environment to think and to create."

"From the academy, we will strengthen our commercial partnerships, solve some of the world’s toughest adhesion challenges and develop market-ready solutions to help drive customer and industry performance."

R&D director Nick Lehman added: "By bringing together adhesive specialists from different sectors to share expertise, transfer technologies between markets and stimulate ideas, we are confident we can accelerate adhesive innovation.
