Market for glue
Jens Thage retired director for Augustinus Tobaksfabrikker established Jens Thage & Co, a distributor company that imported glue called Strucol from Strucol BV, Holland when he discovered a market for glue in Denmark.
Sells to Strucol
Jens Thage sells his company to Strucol BV, Holland and they start a Branch Office in Copenhagen. Poul Køster was engaged as director for the new company.
The company really expanded and the need for new and bigger facilities arose. The company got a new domicile in Tølløse. At the same time the name was
changed to National Starch & Chemical, since 10 years earlier in 1976 this international giant on the market had acquired 50 % of Strucol BV, Holland.
National Starch & Chemical acquires Notra Kemi A/S in Uldum, by which the company is supplied with extensive expertise within adhesive products for the wood industry. Along with the acquisition follows an exclusive distributor’s contract with BASF – one of the world’s biggest and leading glue manufacturers – to sell their adhesive products.
Poul Køster buys the Danish part of National Starch & Chemical and carries on the company under the name PK Industriklæbestoffer A/S in Fredericia.
The leading employees Karl Brynningsen and Bent Jensen purchase PK Industriklæbestoffer A/S and own 50% of the share capital each.
