The Reynolds Company was founded in 1978 by Hays Reynolds, Jr. He was a member of the Class of 1944 at Clemson College (now Clemson University). After serving in the armed forces in Europe, Hays returned to South Carolina and began a career selling starch to textile mills throughout the southeast. It was in the early 1960s when he launched an adhesive manufacturing company called Tanco Adhesives.

Today, the company operates in a 180,000 square-foot campus with six buildings allowing for independent product lines. With vital rail access, bulk shipments of critical raw materials are received in a timely manner. With over 150 employees and sales throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia, our customer base is comprised of Fortune 500 customers as well as smaller, more regional customers. The company produces hot melt, water based adhesives, and dry blend adhesives.

In April of 2006, the company merged with ITOCHU International, a holding company based out of Tokyo, Japan. With key managing officers in place, the company’s philosophy of maintaining and growing our business has remained the same. For more information visit ITOCHU’s website:

In October 2015, The Reynolds Company acquired Progressive Adhesives, located in Memphis, TN. Progressive Adhesives further expanded The Reynolds Company with its expertise in water based adhesives.
