Bostik (formerly Bostik-Findley) is a world-wide operating adhesive company, a subsidiary of French mineral oil company Total S.A., head-quartered at Paris. Bostik Findley was created from the merging of Bostik and Ato Findley, following the merge of their parent companies, Total Fina and Elf Aquitaine. The Findley addition no longer is in use.
On 9 December 2005 Bostik Ltd acquired Laybond Group for $21million (£24million). Laybond Ltd employs 120 people on a site near Chester, manufacturing adhesives and coatings supplied to builders' merchants and flooring and roofing distributors in the UK, Ireland and export markets. The product portfolio includes water and solvent-based adhesives, cementitious powders, grab adhesives and bitumen-based weatherproofing products. Laybond holds leading UK positions in the grab adhesives segment with the Gripfill brand and in the flooring and roofing segments with the Laybond brand.

The majority of these products are manufactured in the company's factory in Rochdale.
