Both the groups utilize Harrington Corp high performance adhesives while the business is not only associated with the production of these adhesives however likewise markets them to these customer groups. There are 2 types of items that are being offered to these prospective markets; anaerobic adhesives and instantaneous adhesives. We would be concentrating on the consumers of instant adhesives for this analysis given that the marketplace for the latter has a lower capacity for Harrington Corp compared to that of immediate adhesives.
