In 1992, Sammy Mayeux introduced North America to a new kind of polyurethane adhesive. Used by European craftsmen and woodworkers for decades, this new glue – which Mayeux called Excel Glue – dramatically decreased bonding time while providing unparalleled bonding strength.
Over the years, we’ve modified this innovative construction-grade glue to work with a wide variety of users and applications. Under the leadership of current owners Kyle Murphy and Scott Rhoades, our lineup of polyurethane adhesives was expanded and renamed Grizzly Glue to better reflect the product’s strength, grip, and tenacity – even under harsh conditions.
What hasn’t changed is our dedication to our customers. The AmBel Corporation – the exclusive distributor of Grizzly Glues in North America – has earned a reputation for unequaled personal service, knowledgeable customer support, and value-priced products. We understand the needs of our customers, and we’re dedicated to keeping Grizzly Glue always in stock, available, and shipped within ONE business day.
We’re proud of the unbreakable bonds created by Grizzly Glue, but we’re even more proud of the bonds we create with our customers.
