Bethesda, Maryland -- The US Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) has welcomed five new members to its ranks in the first three months of 2012, pushing its membership level to 119 companies.
The new members represent different aspects of the adhesive and sealant supply chain, including raw materials suppliers, manufacturers and global affiliates, ASC said in 19 March news release.
The increase in new members follows the ASC's 97-percent retention rate, the association said.
"New members are joining ASC to take advantage of our well known efforts that bring the industry together including our convention and short courses, but also for our new efforts including the recently announced ASC training academy and renewed emphasis on government relations advocacy," said Matthew Croson, president of ASC.
The following companies joined the ASC in the first quarter of 2012: Novomer Inc., Rosin Chemical International Investment Co., Worthen Industries Inc., SCA Schuker, and Epmar Corp.
ASC is due to hold its spring convention in Denver, Colorado, on 15 April.
