Since 1939, The Gluefast Company, Inc. has been a family business specializing in adhesive application and dispensing equipment, gluing machines, and adhesives for the packaging, graphics, converting, and picture framing industries.
Our original pioneering glue labeler and envelope moistener from 1939 are still active products in our expansive line of adhesives, glues, and adhesive equipment. By the 1950’s, Gluefast was manufacturing glues as well as adhesives and carrying more than one hundred products for adhesive packaging, palletizing, and carton sealing. In 1986, Gluefast joined the Packaging Machinery Manufacturer’s Institute (PMMI) which today includes more than five hundred U.S. and Canadian manufacturers of packaging equipment.
In 1992, we introduced the SKID-LOCK® UNITIZING SYSTEM, a simple and cost-effective way to significantly reduce waste product used in packaging. This palletizing adhesive process has led to an increased number of exports and distributor contacts. Today we export SKID-LOCK®, as well as glue labelers, to every continent. In 1998, Gluefast introduced GLUE SPOTS, a unique removable adhesive dots system, which consists of pressure sensitive hot melt adhesives the size of a dime extruded onto a silicone release liner. By 2001, Gluefast changed this product's format and renamed it Gluefast DUOS. In 2005, Gluefast became a distributor for the Glue Dots® product line.
