Henkel Forms New Adhesive Business Sectors

August 9, 2005

l Following the sale of Cognis (see Industry News, p. 78), Henkel will establish a branded consumer products business sector called consumer adhesives. This new business sector and the consequent separation of the branded consumer products and industrial systems and service businesses will strengthen Henkel’s market position in the branded consumer products business, according to the company. In addition, industrial adhesives, engineering adhesives and surface technologies will also be regrouped in a new business sector called Henkel Technologies. The organizational restructuring includes personnel changes at the Henkel management board, effective January 1, 2002. For more on these changes, see People on the Move p. 82.
