Founded in 1995, Glue Dots International revolutionized the adhesives industry with instant bonding adhesive products under the Glue Dots® brand name. Glue Dots were the original product of its kind, invented by company director of new product development John Downs. Initially introduced to the industrial marketplace, the product line and related uses quickly expanded.

Glue Dots® was acquired by Ellsworth Adhesives Corporation in 1999 to further strengthen product development and increase distribution channels.

In 2001, an assortment of products was launched at the Hobby Industry Association show. The response was immediate. Since then consumers have discovered endless uses for Glue Dots around the home, school and office.
