Henkel Recognized Performance of Strategic Partners

Driving powerful innovations and providing tailor-made solutions to customers: A key factor for success for Henkel Adhesive Technologies is close collaboration with strategic suppliers. For the fourth consecutive year, the business unit has recognized outstanding performance by its suppliers with its annual Supplier Awards in the categories of Supply Performance, Supplier Innovation and Supplier Sustainability.

The know-how and experience of raw material suppliers play a key role for Henkel Adhesive Technologies to continuously drive powerful innovations. To underline the importance of these partnerships the Henkel business unit annually recognizes strategic partners that delivered exceptional performance.

“Strategically directed programs and joint R&D projects with key suppliers enable us to gain early access to our partners’ latest innovations,” explained Mike Olosky, Corporate Senior Vice President and Global Head of Innovation and New Business Development at Henkel Adhesive Technologies, during this year’s award ceremony held in Düsseldorf at the end of October. “The close and trustful collaboration with our partners allows us to incorporate our requirements at a very early stage in the development process, and meet the specific needs of our customers in the best possible way.”

“We appreciate the open and direct contact and cooperation with our strategic suppliers,” added Bjoerk Ohlhorst, Senior Vice President Procurement at Henkel. “The close partnership enables us to deliver excellence in supply performance, innovation and sustainability generating differentiated competitive edge and answers to the needs of our customers throughout the entire value chain.”
