UHU - the famous trademark for glues

UHU, a member of the Bolton Group


Since 1994 UHU is a member of the Bolton Group, a fast-growing international company manufacturing and marketing a wide range of high quality branded consumer goods worldwide. The Group brand portfolio is rich of more than 50 product lines ranging from Food and Household Care products through Adhesives and Glues to Personal Care and Beauty Care products.


Modern production know-how, advanced logistic systems, in-house innovative product development and clever advertising in classic and new media are the keys to the group's success.


The Bolton Adhesives Division forms a strategic unit containing several adhesive brands (BISON, Bostik, Imedio, UHU) and chemo technical products (Griffon, CFS, Airmax). Alongside their own development and product competence, each company within the division has access to the other's specific know-how in their various product fields.

Following-on UHU management's emphasis on strategic innovation, we systematically develop new ideas, concepts and products. The constant enhancement of our adhesives and assortments, the focus on consumer's aspirations and requirements, the pursuit of improvement and higher performance, these are both our challenge and our commitment. Quality and security are considered as a matter of course.

It comes as no surprise that research and development is highly significant for UHU. We develop our products in our own laboratories and most of our innovative products are “Made in Germany”, manufactured in Buehl, our home for over 80 years.

With regards to economy and ecology, we owe our employees, neighbours and millions of customers an exemplary conduct. For us, ecology and economy are no contradiction. Environmental awareness and measures are applied to all areas, from product development and production processes to usage and disposal by consumers. At the same time we never loose sight of our own corporate values nor of current legal requirements.

UHU constantly improves conditions for the protection and health of our employees, the environment, our neighbourhood and our millions of consumers worldwide. In production processes, our efforts far surpass that which is required.


UHU, the familiar brand


People of all ages and walks of life, whether in private or at work, know UHU as the answer to all their gluing needs at home, at the office or at school. UHU caters for all ages starting at kindergarten.


The sense of accomplishment that is gained from successfully achieving a creative activity such as a craft or a model or resolving a technical issue, whether alone or in a team, is what shapes the positive perception of our brand. UHU is always a reliable partner and helper, the reason for receiving high recognition and positive consideration from its consumers.


Today, UHU has become a famous trademark for paper glue in many countries throughout the world. Based in Germany, UHU's activity is global with a strong focus on Europe.


Subsidiaries in Europe, the USA, Canada, Mexico and Australia and a broad network of distribution partners, allow UHU supply products to millions of satisfied customers throughout the world.


UHU continues to explore users’ increasingly specific expectations, aiming to offer innovative solutions that make using adhesives easier and that produce effective results, in keeping with UHU’s motto:
