In line with the implementation of its Strategy 2016, Henkel continued to standardize production and logistics activities across all business units, and consolidated them with its purchasing operations into a global supply chain organization. The new organization started operations in early November 2014.
Henkel opened its largest automated storage facility at its corporate headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany, marking the end of a project in which the company invested a total of 35 million euros. The result is a superlative facility: built on an area the size of two football fields, its ten rack levels offer storage capacity for more than 25 million packages of laundry and home care products.
At the inaugural ceremony, the new central storage facility was officially declared open by Bruno Piacenza, a Member of Henkel’s Management Board and Executive Vice President Laundry & Home Care. “Detergents and Düsseldorf – for us, the two are inseparably linked. We have been manufacturing here for more than 130 years: Düsseldorf is not only our corporate headquarters but – still today – Laundry & Home Care’s biggest manufacturing site worldwide,” he said in his address to mark the occasion.More information
