AJ Adhesives. Inc. and Mid-America Packaging (MAP) are pleased to announce the acquisition of Wes Adhesives, Inc. Wes Adhesives is a full line adhesive and adhesive application equipment distributor founded in 1981. For 37 years, Wes Adhesives and the Westerlund family have operated out of Carrollton and Houston, TX servicing the Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana markets.
The union of these companies is a natural fit for all involved as all the players believe in being customer centered. AJ and MAP, already servicing the same geographic area, are excited to continue to make growth in Texas, as well as allow us to promote/sell other product lines in all our geographies. We welcome Wes Adheisves to the family. The combination of highly talented people in both organizations creates a stronger presence, with locations continuing in Carrollton, TX and joining our Dallas and Houston operation. At present, each company will continue to operate as it currently does, experiencing only minor changes to transition to our operating platform. Wes Adhesives personnel are joining our AJ & MAP team and will be vital in assisting the transition.
AJ Adhesives and Mid-America Packaging are not strangers to this type of growth. Last July the sister companies acquired Adhesives Plus also branched in Texas; making AJ and MAP the leading distributors in the Texas territory!
