About Henkel

Henkel Group

Henkel operates worldwide with leading brands and technologies in three business areas: Laundry & Home Care, Cosmetics and Personal Care and Adhesive Technologies.

Founded in 1876 by Fritz Henkel in Maastricht Aachen, Germany Henkel holds global leadership positions both in the consumer and industrial markets, with brands such as Persil, Schwarzkopf, Loctite and Pritt. It has headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany and has approximately 47,000 employees in over 120 countries, more than 180 production facilities and 10 major R&D sites worldwide.

In June 1923, the first delivery of adhesives was made from the premises of Düsseldorf, Germany. This milestone marked the birth of Adhesives Technologies business unit, in which Henkel is a global leader today. An integral part of the Adhesive Technologies is the division of construction chemicals, offering a wide range of special products and system solutions to meet and exceed the construction industry requirements, from consultants and professional applicators. Our product portfolio is including 6 main categories:

  • Waterproofing 
  • Sealants
  • Mortars
  • Tiling
  • Flooring
  • PU Foams

The combination of our products may offer a wide range of system solutions, supporting consultants, applicators and contractors on their efforts to choose the suitable system for any project, regardless the difficulty level, including:

  • Foundations waterproofing systems
  • Thermal Insulation and waterproofing systems for roofing
  • Systems for tiling application in wet areas and pools
  • Flooring systems covering needs for indoor flooring, car park and industrial flooring

This sector is continuously growing and that is why in 1986 Henkel acquired Ceresit, market leading thermal insulation and waterproofing brand. As a result, Henkel expanded its portfolio of chemical products for the building and strengthening its position in Eastern Europe, while expanded dynamically in Asia, Middle East and Latin America.

Our rich experience, knowledge, technology and innovative products help our customers to be successful and efficient while preserving the natural resources of the planet.
