“Henkel has been present in Russia for 25 years. Since 1990 we have opened nine local plants in Russia, offering new innovative products, bringing new local employment and driving further development of the region”, said Günter Thumser, President Henkel CEE. “By opening our new extended automated logistic center and new production facilities in Perm – one of the most important regions for us – we will be closer to our customers and consumers in the region and can better adapt our operations and products to their needs and market demand. Russia is a very important market for Henkel and our ongoing investments demonstrate our long-term and clear commitment to Russia.”

With the new buildings, the production and logistics area of the plant has increased by 16,000 square meters. By expanding the production capacity for liquids products and extending the fully automatized high-bay warehouse, Henkel took relevant measures, in order to meet market demands for the coming decade. This technological upgrade will double the production volume of liquid products in the Perm plant and speed up warehouse capabilities by 30 percent.
