Ellsworth Adhesives already supplies to the aerospace industry – both directly and indirectly – and by obtaining AS9120 certification it is keen to build its market share in this sector.

"We are delighted to be awarded with the AS9120 certification," Managing Director John Henderson said. "This represents a huge leap forward for Ellsworth Adhesives Europe as we seek to grow our business and customer base year on year, and brings us into line with our sister company Ellsworth Speciality Chemical Distribution in the USA which is also ISO 9120 accredited.”
