Making The Grade B is not simply a maker of adhesives but delights in market leadership in the immediate adhesive industry. The business has its own skilled and qualified sales force which includes worth to sales by training the business's network of 250 suppliers for helping with the sale of adhesives.
Core competences are not restricted to adhesive manufacturing just as Making The Grade B also focuses on making adhesive giving equipment to facilitate the use of its items.

However, the reality remains that the provider does not have much influence over the purchaser at this moment particularly as the purchaser does not show brand name recognition or rate level of sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the purchaser and the producer do not have a major control over the actual sales, this shows that the supplier has the greater power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name commitment and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese rivals in the immediate adhesive market suggests that the market enables ease of entry.
