Footwear, leather and fancy goods
Our background in adhesives for footwear, leather and fancy goods
Supplying adhesives for footwear is where it all began for Anglo Chemical Company back in 1905. At this time, footwear was a thriving industry in the UK. Our specialist adhesives for footwear helped craftsmen create beautiful shoes and boots. Thanks to traditional processes, they produced some of the world’s finest footwear – and those methods still exist today.
Despite cheaper imports, the footwear industry is now stronger than ever in the UK. This success is boosted by the quality of shoes that our customers produce. While not much has changed in terms of manufacturing processes, the adhesives that we supply for ribbing and sole attaching have evolved considerably.
