Together against Corona

The world is facing an enormous challenge. The global corona pandemic has an impact on each and every one of us, on all areas of our lives – and of course it impacts the economy and our company. The situation is unpredictable and challenging. This makes it all the more important that we stand together in these times, that we work together to slow down the spread of the corona virus and to master the challenge. Our highest priority is the well-being of our employees, our customers and our partners. We do everything we can to ensure their safety and health, be it on site or in the home office – while at the same time ensuring the continuity of our businesses, to continue supplying our customers in the industrial business with important products and technologies. And to be able to continue to offer our important consumer products, such as detergents, cleaning products, shampoos, soaps and shower gels.

Henkel is committed to helping address this unprecedent challenge. We want to make a contribution, and therefore we launched a comprehensive global solidarity program – including financial donations, product donations, the production of hand disinfectants as well as increased and ongoing safety measures for our employees. 

We take action to live up to this commitment, today and in the future as the situation evolves. We will keep you informed – on this website or via our social media channels!

For our customers, partners and suppliers

In our effort to help prevent the further spread of the coronavirus, we have taken rapid and comprehensive measures to protect our employees, customers, partners and suppliers. Despite the constantly evolving nature of this situation, we are making every effort to mitigate potential shortages and delivery delays and we are fully focused on protecting business continuity for you. Our procurement, supply chain and operations teams are working diligently to continue servicing your needs.

We have access to numerous resources, and we are currently activating these resources to meet your needs in the best way possible. You can count on us to leverage our expertise, our multiple-sourcing strategy and our global production network in our comprehensive effort to meet your demand to the greatest extent possible. Our aim is to keep critical areas in our facilities open and staffed, and to keep operating the vast majority of our manufacturing sites around the globe while ensuring compliance with rapidly changing laws and governmental orders, to make sure we are at your service.

However, the current situation and the rapid development of the pandemic worldwide make mid-to-long-term assessments rather difficult – and these dynamics can potentially affect supply stability very suddenly. We will do everything we can to keep meeting your needs. We would appreciate your support by informing our Henkel customer service proactively in case you face unforeseen demand changes or supply issues.

We hope that your teams and their families stay safe in these more-than-challenging times. We are confident that we will be able to work through this together.
