Innovation does not happen in a vacuum. Henkel relies on innovation hubs as innovation centers. One example is the Adhesive Technologies Technology Center in Bridgewater, NJ. Here our customers and Henkel experts can tackle production challenges together and find solutions, applying our broad portfolio from sustainable packaging to smart operations maintenance.
The Technology Center in Bridgewater follows the successful concept of the global Adhesive Technologies Inspiration Center at our headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany. At this development center for adhesives, sealants, and functional coatings, more than 650 colleagues work directly with our customers from different industries.
As a global market leader, Adhesive Technologies develops high-impact solutions through groundbreaking innovations across a wide range of industries. Whether in automotive engineering, construction, electronics, medical technology or the food industry, Henkel Adhesive Technologies' solutions and technologies are encountered everywhere.
Our Henkel Consumer Brands business units includes iconic brands such as Loctite®, Persil®, and Schwarzkopf®. We operate a multicategory platform focused on the core categories of laundry and home care and hair. The platform offers a broader foundation and attractive opportunities to further develop the Henkel portfolio. Sustainability and digitalization are also two of the key drivers of innovation here. With changing consumer trends and needs are at the heart of our innovation approach. Our Schwarzkopf Professional hubs, for example, are located in Los Angeles and Hamburg, Germany and together with the “J-beauty innovation hub” in Tokyo, Japan, provide a global ecosystem across North America, Europe, and Asia for our Hair Professional business.
