Kelloggs Capital Management The Monticello Fund is not simply a manufacturer of adhesives but delights in market management in the immediate adhesive industry. The company has its own skilled and certified sales force which adds value to sales by training the company's network of 250 suppliers for facilitating the sale of adhesives.
