OTTO INDUSTRYValues, products and services
OTTO stands for experience and competence in the field of sealing and bonding. We are still a value-oriented, family-run company – a company with a long tradition (established in 1881) yet short communication channels. Around 450 employees work at the company’s headquarters in Fridolfing, Upper Bavaria, and in the sales force department. We are independent when it comes to decisions and investments – with a Standard & Poors rating of AAA, we bear the best of all values awarded.
Factors for success
The main factors behind OTTO's success are the uncompromising quality of its products, consultancy and service which go beyond the norm. A further factor is the wide technology platform which enables individual solutions when it comes to products, processes and logistics. Result: 100% customer orientation.
Other factors contribute towards the substantial growth of the company: on-going investments in employees, process engineering and logistics as well as the constant expansion of the company’s range of technology, applications and sectors.
The spread of risk thanks to the high degree of diversification, the short decision-making channels and the independence of higher-level organisations, banks and stock exchanges have proven themselves to be stability factors when it comes to finances.
Novasil® and other products
The Novasil® products developed for industrial use are amongst the most important products. They permit elastic bonds with sealants, adhesives, sealing compounds, coating materials based on silicone, hybrid (STP), acrylate and polyurethane. They are also suitable for totally different demands: mechanical forces (pressure, torsion, vibrations, etc.), water loading, UV radiation, high temperatures and temperature fluctuations. They are resistant to cleaning agents, robust and resistant to chemical substances and compatible with surrounding materials.
Example: Novasil® S 690
Based on a 1-component adhesive (RTV-1) which however can be extended to RTV-2 and HTV-2. Its processing properties are variable: for instance, the process speed can be adapted in line with the production process. An innovation came in the form of the addition of a booster component to the RTV-1 Novasil® S 690 to create the RTV-2 and the further development into the HTV-2 (“curing on demand”) by means of additional heating.
Services as an added value
OTTO scores points above all for its entire package of service measures and
advantages to do with the product. This starts with the individualised consultancy and customer care provided by the technically savvy sales force, and continues through to the alignment of the order logistics with the customer requirements, such as by means of commercially available packaging options, individual product labelling with EAN, QR and RFID or by means of electronic order processing (B2B).
A further success factor is the huge system selection of sealants and adhesives, sealing components and coating materials. They enable bespoke solutions instead of standard compromises. The constant adaptation of products to the customers’ production process corresponds with the accompaniment of the process integration by the sales force or by tried and tested, coordinated partners from the field of mechanical engineering. Personal alliances and partnerships are as advantageous for customers as for the integration of component suppliers in the development process. The company’s own logistics centre guarantees absolute deadline and delivery compliance, the flexible production guarantees contract manufacturing with short delivery times and fresh goods. Additionally, a minimum inventory stock can be stored.

Over the years, a range of industrial bonding and sealing agents for use in certain fields of application has become established in order to cover the requirements of our customers. These products form the core Novasil® range.
