Henkel received “Be The Best” Excellence Award

Henkel received Rexam’s “Be The Best” Excellence Award in the two categories “Silver Operational Excellence Level” and “Total Cost Reduction” in August 2011 as a result of the implementation of new technologies in Brazil. Henkel was the only direct material supplier to receive the highest award category of silver rating from Rexam at the annual Supplier Excellence Conference.

The award was based on key performance criteria, in which Rexam evaluates each of its strategic partners. The “Silver Operational Excellence Level” certificate was received in recognition of the high standards, accuracy, and conformity to current standards, with which Henkel operates in all steps of the manufacturing process. Not only did Henkel receive the trophy, but the company also obtained the highest score out of over 50 strategic suppliers that were audited at the beginning of 2011. Rexam Corporation is one of the leading global manufacturers of beverage and beer cans and the leading can manufacturer in South America. For Henkel’s Metal Packaging business unit, Rexam Corporation is the largest global customer.
