H.B. Fuller announces the launch of a new range of Gorilla Professional Grade™ products for the professional MRO Industrial marketplace

ST. PAUL, MN – H.B. Fuller (NYSE: FUL) today announced the launch of a new range of Professional Grade MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) Industrial adhesives, sealants and lubricants under the Gorilla Professional Grade line, also known as GorillaPro to be available in the United States and Canada.

The Gorilla Professional Gradeportfolio consists of 19 products, including threadlockers, epoxies, metal pipe-fitting assembly sealants, retaining compounds, anti-seize, gasketing and instant adhesives. These chemical tools also will have a user-friendly, color-coded, application identification system and easy-to-use, innovative packaging specifically designed for the MRO Industrial professional.

This is the first product launch since The Gorilla Glue Company LLC granted H.B. Fuller an exclusive, trademark license agreement, effective March 1, 2020. Teams from each company have worked closely together to create a professional grade of MRO Industrial chemical tools.

“Our two teams have done an outstanding job in just seven months, closely collaborating to launch a range of new and exciting premium products, developed with enthusiasm for the MRO Industrial professional and combining H.B. Fullers’ technologies and packaging know-how with Gorilla Glue®’s well-known and highly respected brand,” said Scott Pergande, global director of Product Management and Marketing for H.B. Fuller’s Engineering Adhesives business unit. “With this partnership, H.B. Fuller now has the optimal product portfolio to fulfill many of the MRO Industrial market’s unmet needs. Our unique professional chemical tools for repair, installation and maintenance enable reliable and efficient operation of manufacturing equipment and other heavy machinery.”

H.B. Fuller has partnered with R.S. Hughes Company, Inc., MSC Industrial Supply Company and Krayden Inc. to reach MRO professionals in a range of industrial markets across the United States and Canada. Customers will be able to obtain GorillaPro products through these distributors’ e-commerce platforms as well as their local distribution warehouses, pick-up counters and daily delivery options.

“As a premier channel partner with this program, we are very pleased to partner with H.B. Fuller on the Gorilla Professional Grade portfolio launch,” said Pete Biocini, president & CEO, R.S. Hughes Company, Inc. “Today’s announcement further extends our ability to provide premium, high-quality products directly to MRO Industrial customers across the U.S. and Canada. We believe the GorillaPro brand will resonate well with the current and new generation of production, maintenance, facility and purchasing professionals coming into prominence in our industry today.”

The new range of Gorilla Professional Grade MRO Industrial products includes a variety of single-use, easy-to-mix epoxies and signature instant adhesives’ soft round bottles and clog-free dispense tips, as well as anaerobic gel pump packaging for easier use and handheld dispensing.

All Gorilla Professional Grade products and packaging in the portfolio are designed to ensure plant uptime and mechanical equipment reliability, while helping professional maintenance personnel with best-in-class tools.
