Built in 1994 by The Loctite Corporation, the Rocky Hill facility was acquired by Henkel with its purchase of LOCTITE in 1997. The site is currently celebrating its 25th year and the successful growth of the LOCTITE brand under Henkel’s leadership.

With over 500 employees across various SBUs and functions, Rocky Hill’s diverse team is driving innovation and business growth serving hundreds of markets. As the official Henkel North America headquarters, the site is the center of operations for the region and includes many functional personnel to help support the business and overall organization.

Rocky Hill is also the North American headquarters for Henkel’s Adhesive General Manufacturing & Maintenance business (ACM). The ACM business works with customers to provide LOCTITE products and services that reduce maintenance costs and help prevent unplanned downtime.

“We are a solutions-oriented team,” said Thomas Falz, Corporate Vice President, ACM, North America and Mexico. “We strive to deliver the highest-quality outcome for our customers amid very dynamic conditions with constant new applications and situations.”

In addition to development, we are also regularly engaging with customers here to learn more about our product and technologies. This in turn helps them understand materials and accelerate market success.”
