2015 – the year of the anniversaries
The past year was all about anniversaries at Henkel: From 30 years of trading at the stock exchange to the centenary of Konrad Henkel's birth – it is a nice occasion to take a look at what happened in 2015.
And there were even more highlights throughout the year. You can find a small selection below:
"Forscherwelt" in Istanbul
Henkel’s education initiative “Forscherwelt” (in English “Explorer’s World”) is now also available at the Bosphorus. The groundbreaking project was introduced as “Keşif Dünyası” to children in elementary schools around Istanbul.
Loctite scores at the "Big Game"
For the first time a Henkel product was advertised in the commercial break during the annual championship game of the National Football League with a 30-second TV commercial. Loctite's advertising was a big success.
Breakthrough in e-commerce
Henkel Beauty Care recorded triple-digit growth in the Chinese e-commerce market.
New customer center
With its Global Experience Center in Düsseldorf, the business unit Laundry & Home Care sets new standards in terms of customer relationship management and customer value creation. By offering the very latest trends in digital technology the center provides a unique showcase for the business unit’s innovations and expertise.
A start with top brands
With the acquisition of leading powder and liquid detergent brands from Colgate-Palmolive, Henkel enters the Australian and New Zealand detergent market.
Global launch of Yammer
In September Henkel launched the internal social enterprise network Yammer.
A big plus for Henkel employees
Henkel CFO Carsten Knobel officially opened a company childcare facility in Bratislava, the first outside of Germany.
On the occasion of the 21st World Climate Summit in Paris Henkel employees from around the world exchanged their ideas about their personal contribution to help save the climate.
By the beard of the pharaoh
This news went around the world: The beard of the world-famous, more than 3,000-year-old golden mask of Tut Ankh Amun fell off during a cleaning procedure and was hastily glued back on improperly. With the support of adhesives experts from Henkel the beard was removed from the mask and fixed with a customized glue provided by Henkel. In December the restored golden mask of the young pharaoh was presented to the world public during a ceremony at the Egyptian museum in Cairo.
