Bostik, Inc. (formerly Bostik ATO Findley, Inc.) is located at 11320 W Watertown Plank Road in Wauwatosa, WI. The 71,000 square foot addition, design-build project was completed with Stephen Perry Smith Architects in Pewaukee, WI.

Hunzinger served as the Design-Builder on this 71,000 square foot research and development addition to the existing 204,000 square foot factory building. The new addition included additional manufacturing and warehouse space along with a new state of the art Quality Control Lab. The addition also features a stylish steel structure with brick veneer and metal panels.

Bostik is a century old company that is a leading global adhesive specialist in industrial manufacturing, their construction and consumer markets were growing rapidly and they needed additional space. They manufacture adhesives for non-woven disposable products, film, fabric and paper converting, and applications in the packaging and assembly markets.

“This was a design/build project that we completed on time and within budget. What stands out for me on this project is how precise the requirements were for the mechanicals, particularly the heating, venting and air conditioning, and the impact of temperature and humidity on the testing of their adhesives. The challenge came with the necessity to keep the temperature constant but typical units turn on when the temperature drops and turns off when the proper temperature is reached and throughout that cycling there can be a slight variation. We worked diligently with the owner and the mechanical subcontractor to ensure that the controls were functioning in the exacting manner that the owner needed.”
