To better support the growth requirements of global customers, and present a more unified product offering, French company Eleco Produits – EFD, specialising in industrial adhesives, dispensing and UV curing equipment, is changing its name to Eleco Panacol – EFD effective 1st August 2019.

Since the beginning, Eleco has been partnering with German adhesives manufacturer Panacol-Elosol, distributing UV, structural and conductive adhesives. Inhouse laboratories for quality control and adhesive applications allow in-depth testing and qualified consultation.

Since 2008, Eleco has also been distributing matching UV curing equipment from new parent company Dr. Hoenle. To complement its all-in-one solutions, Eleco also provides dispensing equipment for its adhesives portfolio. Situated in the metropolitan Paris area, Eleco benefits from a central logistic hub. Effective quality control methods ensure high quality products, packaging and transport. Eleco is certified to ISO 9001 standards.

The focus of Eleco Panacol – EFD will remain on the sales of innovate industrial adhesives and equipment from its facility in Genevilliers/Paris. The organisation’s management and team will remain intact.
