I had an urgent requirement for 3 specific glues to carry out repairs to a damaged hatch cover on the MV Redhead, which was arriving into Belfast Port within days. We contacted Action Adhesives. They had 2 of the glues in stock, which they delivered to our stores the following day. They were able to source and recommend an alternative to the 3rd glue and arranged to have it delivered in time for the ship’s arrival into Belfast.
