However, if we take a look at Empire Blue Cross And Blue Shield A in particular, the business has dual capabilities in terms of being a manufacturer of adhesive dispensers and instant adhesives. Possible hazards in devices dispensing industry are low which reveals the possibility of creating brand name awareness in not only instantaneous adhesives but also in dispensing adhesives as none of the market gamers has handled to position itself in double abilities.
