Henkel completes sale of Right Guard and Dry Idea brands
Henkel has closed the sale of two brands, Right Guard and Dry Idea, to Thriving Brands LLC, effective June 1, 2021. Both brands are mainly focused on the North American and UK markets. The transaction is another milestone in the company’s ambition to actively shape its portfolio, an important pillar of its Purposeful Growth agenda. Last year, Henkel announced that the company has identified brands and categories with a total sales volume of more than one billion euros, predominantly in its consumer businesses, of which around 50 percent are marked to be divested or discontinued by 2021.
10 Years “Henkel Forscherwelt”
Getting children excited about science and awakening their researcher’s spirit – with this in mind, Henkel founded the “Forscherwelt” (Researchers’ World) ten years ago. In April 2011, the first Forscherwelt vacation course was held at the Henkel site in Düsseldorf. Since then, around 62,000 elementary school children took part in Forscherwelt classes in a total of 13 countries. The joint motto: "being like a researcher".
