Acquisitions & Divestments

Acquisitions are an integral part of our strategy.

Our assessment of potential acquisitions is based on whether the targets are available, fit Henkel’s strategy, and are financially attractive. In the Adhesive Technologies business unit we are aiming to acquire new technologies, which complement our portfolio and expand our technology leadership. In HPC we focus on strengthening our leading country / category positions and on new business models.
