Anniversaries are memorable occasions. 2012 was such a speical year for ALFA Klebstoffe AG. The company was established as a one-man company over 40-years ago (1972). Driven by entrepreneurial spirit, Emil Simmler plucked up the courage to begin with the development and distribution of water-based adhesives. The fact that the adhesives were already free from solvents at this time was to to put a lasting stamp on the history of the company.
The company continued to grow steadily in the following years. Today it has about 55 employees in the departments of management, research and development, production, purchasing, sales and marketing. Resources and know-how were continuously expanded and reinforced in the individual departments. Cooperation with various customers and suppliers at home and abroad led to the company building up its international renown.
Today the company is known as an innovative and flexible partner for all kinds of adhesive applications. Thanks to the high-quality and environmentally-friendly dispersions and hot-melts, the simplest applications, as well as complex and demanding bonding processes in series production, all succeed. The products undergo continuous further development to do justice to the constantly growing demands of customers. As a result of the know-how transfer created in this way between consumers and ALFA Klebstoffe AG, both partners can benefit enormously – a classic win-win situation.
Especially in the field of environmentally-friendly wet-bonding adhesives, a pioneering feat was achieved with the launch of the SIMALFA® series. SIMALFA® is worldwide the first water-based, one-component adhesive with immediate wet adhesion for the bonding of foam and upholstery materials. In the course of years, the solvent-free bonding system became established in the foam-processing industry as the international standard for efficient, ecological and processing-friendly adhesive application.
ALFA Klebstoffe AG will also rely on developing environmentally-friendly products and partnership with its contact groups in the future.
