Adhesives, Sealants, Glues, and Caulks Manufacturing

Industry Overview:

Highly skilled people are needed to create new products, upgrade existing products and reduce costs, all while embracing energy savings and environmentally smart processes. They may deal with products used in everything from diapers to aircraft, so flexibility and problem-solving are essential skills.

New technologies offer ways to develop new classes and derivatives of adhesives, improve curing processes, upgrade spackling and glazing and develop optimal adhesion. Adding to the challenge: Many of the same products are used by everyone from seasoned professional contractors to do-it-yourselfers.

Ropella knows how to find the people who can add value to a company via recycling, new applications, QA, R&D, improving environmental effectiveness or whatever your company needs.

Common Applications:
  • Meter/mix/dispense process
  • Automation
  • Testing standards
  • Curing
  • Hot-melt, liquid-adhesive patterns
  • Polymers, waxers, filers and additives
  • Specialty sealants
  • Nanoparticles

I highly recommend Robbie Ropella as an executive recruiter. We used Robbie and The Ropella Group for a very difficult search. Robbie was positive, energetic and great to work with. She made strong recommendations that helped us find and hire the best candidate. I love her tenacity and honest approach to get the job done and achieve great results.
