our story

Drawing on talent and expertise from around the globe, we are a company of individuals that celebrate diversity, and cultivate a culture of mindfulness towards each other and our planet. We are keenly focused on minimizing adverse environmental impact as we develop our industrial adhesives, sealants and coatings. This ideal stems from a simple story first told by our founder, Mr. Osamu Ukumori, just over 60 years ago.

On a warm summer day in Tokyo, he observed a small black glittering spot in the road, where a car had just been stopped moments before. It was a mixture of oil and water that had leaked from underneath the vehicle and made a slick shiny area on the asphalt. Throughout the first decade after World War II, Mr. Ukumori was painfully aware of Japan's precious and limited natural resources. He was even conscious of the safety hazards such slick spots might cause to others. And then there was the issue of helping to rebuild a new Japan, making a contribution that was bigger than his own needs and personal interests, and would serve his country.

On that day Mr. Ukumori had an idea that drove his dream to create a company that could significantly impact Japan’s economy—developing products to eliminate leakage or any waste of our natural resources. Over time, this value would spread to the global economy via world-wide manufacturers using our products in diverse applications to enhance living, improve safety and drive production cost efficiencies.

our philosophy

ThreeBond’s North American division subscribes to the company’s integral founding principles established in Japan. But the one that manifests most strongly throughout the entire organization is “The Spirit of Service Above All Else”. It stems from a shared value of Gratitude—a mindset where we strive to be conscious of the fact that any individual’s success is either integrally related to, a result of, or because of, the success of others. Living to be in service to others is inherent in our company philosophy and culture as it permeates everything we do.

Enthusiasm for our work, combined with respect and sincerity towards our colleagues and customers, is evident in every ThreeBond experience, whether it is a purely functional transaction, a personal tour of our facilities, or the collaborative process of an exciting, custom new product.

Something we call “URC” (Understanding. Reliance. Comradeship.), is an important part of this philosophy and one that further builds trust in our customer’s eyes and helps us create lasting relationships with them:
Understanding our customer’s needs
Reliance on our years of expertise and our inherent pursuit of excellence
Comradeship with all those around us, in the workplace and beyond

We invite you to inquire about how we use these principles in our processes, in our customer service, and in our development. Call us or visit us to experience them first hand.
