Our polymer chemists together with their extensive lab capabilities provide outstanding technical support to our customers both small and large.
ResinLab was originally founded in Germantown, Wisconsin in 1988 as Advanced Polymer Concepts also known as APC. The brand name was officially changed to ResinLab in 2000 and the ResinLab trade name is now officially registered and owned by ResinLab, LLC. The original company, APC, was formed by a purchase of the assets of a small local company named Badger Adhesives. The purchase consisted of one mixer and 8-10 customers and their custom formulas. In 1994, APC combined operations with Kitpackers, another unit of Ellsworth Adhesives and moved into a new facility on Morse Drive in the Germantown, Wisconsin industrial park. This new Morse Drive facility was built adjacent to Ellsworth Adhesives facility on Fulton Drive. These three companies complimented each other tremendously, as APC formulated and blended resins, Kitpackers provided custom resin packaging, and Ellsworth Adhesives distributed these products together with a complete line of specialty chemicals from other major manufacturers.
The result of this synergy was rapid growth that necessitated the need for more space for all three companies. In 2003, Ellsworth Adhesives moved to a new 85,000 sq. ft. World Headquarters and Distribution Center in a new Germantown, Wisconsin industrial park a few miles east. This made the Fulton Drive facility available for Kitpackers to renovate, and move its packaging operation from the facility shared with ResinLab on Morse Drive. This allowed ResinLab to double its manufacturing space, setup cellular manufacturing, and enhance its lab capabilities. Further growth necessitated the building of a new state-of-the art 106,000 sq. ft. facility for ResinLab and KitPackers combined operations located adjacent to the existing Ellsworth Adhesives facility.
ResinLab 's new facility increased our manufacturing space by 2.5 times the previous space and has allowed us to add new capabilities as well as higher volume production equipment. In addition, ResinLab's new building increased our lab space fourfold and allowed us to add several product development chemists. The majority of ResinLab products are sold through Ellsworth Adhesives worldwide network of Engineered Sales Representatives throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. Through it’s sister company, Kitpackers, ResinLab offers the widest array in the industry of standard and custom packages of adhesives, sealants, coatings, and encapsulants.
