Guide to Proven Business Principles from a Fifth Generation Family-Owned Business Celebrating Its 140th Anniversary.

In 2015, Wisdom Adhesives Worldwide, a fifth-generation family-owned eco-friendly business, is celebrating 140 continuous years of growth and success.

To celebrate this milestone and to provide guidance to other companies, Wisdom Adhesives has published "The Wisdom Way: Six Guiding Principles for Success and Longevity from a 140-Year-Old Adhesive Manufacturing Company," by Chief Operating and Technical Officer Tom Rolando.

"The Wisdom Way" is a comprehensive approach to conducting business that is based on the guiding principles of Passion, Action, Reinvention, Endurance, Relationships, and Generosity. Represented by the hexagon ring because it is the strongest of all chemical structures, The Wisdom Way’s six guiding principles are the keys to longevity and success.

Wisdom Adhesives Worldwide, a privately held company headquartered just outside of Chicago, was established in 1875. Today Wisdom Adhesives is a leading global manufacturer of specialty leading-edge environmentally compatible water-based and hot melt adhesives used in the packaging, converting, and graphic arts industries.
