Who is Hernon Manufacturing?

Hernon Manufacturing, Inc. was founded in 1978 as a custom formulator of adhesives and sealants. Soon after participating in a grant from the Department of Defense to develop sealing compounds, Hernon began producing products at a small facility in Queens, New York. The company rapidly gained acceptance as a supplier to the General Services Administration (Purchasing Agent for the US Defense Department) and many other defense contractors, due to the demonstrated high quality and performance of their products.

In 1990, Hernon relocated operations to a newly built facility in Sanford, Florida. The current plant has a total of 25,000 square feet with additional adjacent property for future expansion to 67,000 square feet. This location houses executive offices, sales and accounting departments and complete laboratory and production capability.

Established in January 1999, Hernon Latin America LLC. is located at the Free Trade Zone in Cali-Colombia utilizing full manufacturing capabilities to serve Latin America. In September 2001, Hernon entered into a joint venture with Inchem Holdings in Singapore that is listed on the Singaporean Stock Exchange to formalize HERNON ASIA, with the primary goal to distribute Hernon’s extensive product line simultaneously in 15 Asian countries. Several repackaging/manufacturing plants and foreign branch offices are planned for the near future. A similar concept, HernonChemique was launched in 2005 to expand possibilities in Europe.

Today, Hernon Manufacturing Inc. produces over 5000 products including a wide selection of high performance adhesives and sealants. Products manufactured include anaerobics, cyanoacrylates, epoxies, acrylics, methacrylates, UV curing adhesives, impregnation resins and coatings. Hernon also designs and assembles a complete line of precision dispensing equipment and has since developed products used in: aerospace, aviation, automotive, electrical, electronic, appliance, defense, ammunition, marine, engineered plastics, heavy equipment, maintenance, and various other industries.

Hernon’s successful growth can be attributed to products, standards, and services that meet or exceed the rigorous manufacturing and safety requirements demanded by worldwide customers. Today, Hernon is a worldwide innovator of high performance adhesives, sealants, and precision dispensing equipment, supplying top-notch quality of High Performance Adhesives and Sealants at very competitive prices.

In 1999, the Hernon Manufacturing’s Quality System was registered as ISO-9001: 2000 compliant. Including the initial certification, Hernon has maintained biannual inspections without any record of a major nonconformance. Many of Hernon’s Adhesives, Sealants, and Impregnation Resins meet or exceed the stringent qualifications of the United States Military Specifications.

Beginning its third decade, Hernon Manufacturing Inc. remains committed to provide “Chemical Solutions for Mechanical Problems” well into the 21st century.
