“With the opening of our collaborative new space, it’s never been a more exciting time to be at Henkel,” said Jens-Martin Schwaerzler, president, Henkel Consumer Goods and General Manager, Laundry & Home Care, North America. “With our new North American Consumer Goods headquarters in Stamford, we’re poised for additional growth that will drive continued success in Connecticut and across North America.”
Henkel, whose history spans over 140 years, manufactures and markets household brands, and cosmetics brands including Dial soaps, Right Guard antiperspirants, Schwarzkopf hair care, and göt2b hair styling products.
Henkel occupies more than 155,000 square feet on three floors of the building. Thanks to ongoing recruitment and strong growth, the company expects more than 500 employees to work at this location over the course of 2018.
In addition to housing the company’s Beauty Care and Laundry & Home Care businesses, the newly-renovated space also will be home to administrative functions including human resources, finance, legal, IT, purchasing and corporate communications. Later in the year, a new research and development facility and Customer Experience Center will open at this Stamford location to support Henkel’s Beauty Care business and offer opportunities for the public to learn about and try new products and offer feedback.
Henkel employs more than 50,000 people globally.
