In December, 2004, Bostik, Inc. became the official name replacing the former name Bostik Findley, Inc. The earlier merger of Bostik and Ato Findley brought together two organizations rich with history. From it's beginning, Bostik built its success on innovative adhesive technologies for manufacturing. Founded in the late 19th Century as the Boston Blacking Company, renamed as B.B. Chemical in 1950 and formally becoming Bostik in 1972, the company was a pioneer in the development of adhesives for the emerging footwear industry. Throughout the nineteen hundreds Bostik's product line grew and became more diversified under the ownership of various organizations including USM Corporation, Emhart, Black & Decker, and ORKEM. In 1990 Bostik was purchased by TOTAL, a petroleum oil company based in Paris, France. Later that decade TOTAL purchased Belgium based PetroFina forming TotalFina in 1999.Ato Findley came forth with a similar background. Founded in 1911 when Frank G. Findley purchased the Wisconsin Paste Company, a manufacturer of wallpaper and billboard paste. In 1917, the company became known as F.G. Findley Co. and later Findley Adhesives, Inc. Through the years, in an effort to grow sales, their technologies became more sophisticated and they began to serve new and different markets. Being a customer-focused supplier and a technological leader led to global expansion through new manufacturing sites and joint-venture liaisons. In 1996, they were bought by Elf Atochem a subsidiary of Elf Acquitaine thus the formation of Ato Findley.
