Henkel’s Westlake, OH site is the regional headquarters for its Adhesive Technologies’ Consumers & Craftsmen business, where more than 100 sales, marketing, HR, supply chain, customer service and logistics staff work together to serve home fix-it enthusiasts, do-it-yourselfers (DIYers) and construction professionals with durable, reliable adhesives and sealants. Available through home improvement stores, large retailers and professional distribution, and specialty distributors, over 1,500 products are sold under Henkel’s trusted LOCTITE®, OSI® and GE® brands in the US, as well as the popular LePage®, GE® and PRITT® brands in Canada.
While LOCTITE products are well recognized as Henkel’s flagship adhesives brand, the OSI and GE brands are strong contributors to the business’ success. “OSI® QUAD® MAX sealant for window, door and siding installations proves that sustainability and performance are not mutually exclusive,” says Dan Brogan, Corporate Vice President, Consumers & Craftsmen North America. “This product was designed based on end-user input. It is tough against all weather conditions, provides excellent adhesion and long-term durability, cures fast and can match over 9,200 colors.”
The GE-branded consumer sealants represent the newest brand in the portfolio, acquired in late 2020 from Momentive Performance Materials, and complement Henkel’s existing specialty sealant offerings, while expanding its position in North America to include silicone sealants. “I am proud of our team’s efforts to successfully integrate the GE sealants into our portfolio,” added Brogan.
