Everbuild Building Products is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month.
Founded by David Seymour in February 1994, Everbuild began as a re-packer of silicone sealants with just two employees in a 5,000 sq ft unit in Dewsbury, Yorkshire.
From then the company has experienced rapid growth, to the extent that 20 years later Everbuild has a turnover of over £75m a year - the largest manufacturer of sealants, adhesives, fillers and decorating sundries in the UK. Now with a 300,000sq ft facility in Leeds, Everbuild produces over 50m cartridges of sealant each year and manufactures PVA, wood adhesives and acrylic polymers.
In 2013, Everbuild was acquired by Sika, a global company manufacturing building chemicals, sealants, adhesives and speciality products.
