Arrow Adhesives Company is a family owned, specialized manufacturer of solvent cements and related products used to join plastic pipe and fittings. Carroll Voss, founder of Arrow Adhesives Company, graduated from Purdue University in 1955 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering. He worked for Shell Chemical and several other companies before starting Arrow Adhesives Company in November 1964. He saw the potential of making solvent cements for joining plastic pipe and fittings and developed his own solvent cement formulations. He started the company out of his garage, which he quickly outgrew, and after one year was self supporting. In 1971, the company was able to build its own building and plant at 5457 Spalding Dr., Norcross, Georgia, which is their current location.
Carroll and his wife, Nancy, have four children, two girls and two boys. Their sons, Timothy and Joshua, have followed their father into the business. Tim is President and Joshua is Vice President-Sales.
