Since 1921, Scott Bader has manufactured materials that are behind many big, successful brands, creating products that people rely on, every day. Today we work with industries, businesses and consumers the world over, providing innovative composite, structural adhesive and functional polymer products. Scott Bader is an employee-owned £200 million global manufacturer employing 750 people across 7 manufacturing sites and 17 global offices.
Our business is based on the simple principle of maintaining a balance between our social purpose and business needs. In 1951 we became the first UK company to hold a Common Ownership Certificate when the Bader family handed over their shares to the Scott Bader Commonwealth Ltd – in simple terms, this means that Scott Bader colleagues own and are responsible for the success and overall wellbeing of the company.
