Henkel Adhesive Technologies Announces New North American Technical Center of Excellence for Flexible Packaging

Henkel Adhesive Technologies, a market leader with high-impact solutions in adhesives, sealants and coatings, is expanding its capabilities to include a new Technical Center of Excellence for Flexible Packaging Adhesives and Coating applications, in Bridgewater, New Jersey.  Packaging is a center piece of food safety and expanded shelf life, and with an ever-increasing demand for innovative and sustainable packaging driven by retailers and consumers, Henkel is applying its expertise to invest in delivering innovative solutions.

Focused primarily on LOCTITE® adhesive and coatings, the new Technical Center of Excellence will include labs for evaluation, design and testing, full-scale equipment, and state-of-the-art customer training facilities to support the needs of converters and brand owners. Completion of the new facility is expected in late 2019.

“Our Technical Center of Excellence, with its expanded capabilities, will allow our team of technical service and product development experts to optimize our packaging technologies,” said Alejandro Schoenhoff, Vice President.  “Being able to demonstrate the latest adhesive and coating applications in-house gives our customers an opportunity to see the benefits of a new solution before full-scale implementation. At the same time, our upgraded facilities will support improved customer engagement with training courses designed for those involved in the creation of flexible packaging materials, combining theoretical knowledge on the adhesive lamination process with hands-on practical training.”

Created with consumers in mind, Henkel’s consumer packaging adhesives and coatings offer high-impact solutions to allow fast moving consumer goods companies to achieve efficient and reliable options. Henkel’s LOCTITE® products deliver flexible packaging solutions which comply with the FDA and global food safe packaging regulations and assure secure and sustainable packaging for consumers.
