Background

OBO Werke GmbH emerged in 1994 from the long-established wood processing company Otto Bosse, which was originally founded in 1869. After taking over OBO from family ownership, MBB has concentrated the business on polyurethane rigid foam boards. In 2014, OBO took over the European tooling board and tooling paste materials business from Huntsman Advanced Materials along with the master distribution of Huntsman’s tooling liquids in almost all European markets.
