The W.W. Henry Company is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of adhesives for all types of flooring installations. Established in 1933 by Warner W. Henry, Sr., HENRY was initially developed to manufacture roof coatings, roof mastics and driveway sealers.  By the 1950’s W.W. Henry was the largest flooring adhesive manufacturer in the U.S. W. W. HENRY pioneered the use of “emulsion” (latex-based) adhesives, expanding from Linoleum paste type products to multi-purpose, cove base adhesive and acoustical ceiling tile adhesives. In 1964, the company introduced HENRY 356, a multi-purpose latex-based flooring adhesive. HENRY 356 became the most popular flooring adhesive in the country and remains the best known multi-purpose flooring adhesive in the industry today.

In 1986, Armstrong World Industries purchased the W.W. Henry Flooring Adhesives Business from Warner Henry. During the 1990’s, WWH was the first adhesive manufacturer to switch from solvent-based adhesives to solvent-free adhesives.

In 2000, the W.W. Henry Company became a part of ARDEX Americas, and today HENRY is one of the pillars of the ARDEX Americas brands. The fit was a natural one, as both companies share a culture of innovation, excellence and customer service.
