Henkel Laundry & Home Care presents awards to outstanding suppliers

At the 2011 American Cleaning Institute (ACI) – formerly the Soap and Detergent Association (SDA) – Annual Meeting and Industry Convention, January 25 to 29, 2011 in Orlando, Florida, Henkel Laundry & Home Care awards two prizes. The “Best Innovation Contributor 2010” goes to The Dow Chemical Company for the best contribution of an external partner delivering outstanding consumer-relevant innovation. The “Best Supply Performance 2010” is conferred to Firmenich and Symrise for their outstanding operational supply performance.

The Dow Chemical Company recognized for “Best Innovation Contributor 2010”
“We are pleased to present the award for the ‘Best Innovation Contributor 2010’ to our long-term business partner The Dow Chemical Company. With the development of a special polymer exhibiting a repair effect on the elasticity of textiles, The Dow Chemical Company has set a positive example,” says Thomas Müller-Kirschbaum, Corporate Senior Vice President for R&D, Technology and Supply Chain within Henkel’s Laundry and Home Care business sector. “This innovative chemistry contributes to assuring Henkel’s leading position in Special Laundry Care, now and in the future.”

Firmenich and Symrise recognized for “Best Supply Performance 2010”
“To continuously improve supply processes and product quality, we need reliable and flexible partners. For the first time Henkel awards two companies for their outstanding supply performance. Firmenich and Symrise both proved best-in-class solutions even under demanding circumstances in 2010”, states Bertrand Conquéret, Corporate Senior Vice President and Head of Corporate Purchasing at Henkel. “Among many companies that do a great job in reliably supplying Henkel every day, we are pleased to present Firmenich and Symrise with the award for ‘Best Supply Performance 2010’”.
