Hernon Manufacturing, Inc.® was founded in 1978 in New York by immigrant brothers Harry and Josef Arnon. Initially manufacturing adhesives in their mother’s basement, the brothers hand-delivered orders until they could afford to purchase a proper storefront. Over the next 17 years, Hernon® continued to grow and in 1995, the brothers moved the business to the current headquarters in Sanford, FL. The company opened a machine division to manufacture UV LED curing lights and precision dispensing equipment and then in 2015 initiated a massive 160% expansion of their manufacturing facility to keep up with demand. In 2019, Hernon® made the Orlando Business Journal’s Fast 50 list for the second year in a row, boasting six consecutive years of double-digit sales growth. Hernon® maintains an ever-expanding network of over 100 distributor and partner locations around the globe. Already shipping to over 60 nations, Hernon® can provide a total adhesive application solution to manufacturing operations anywhere.
