A label for success
Henkel New Zealand has won an innovation award from Lion Beer, Spirits & Wine (NZ) Ltd for providing state-of-the-art adhesive labeling solutions.
Winning Lion’s coveted innovation award is the result of the hard work and dedication of the Henkel team over many years. Colin Hooper, Account Manager for Adhesive Technologies, Henkel New Zealand said: “We are very proud of this achievement and recognize that the award could not have been won without the support and trust of the Lion team. We’ve worked collaboratively on these solutions together and I look forward to our continued partnership.”
Henkel has been working with Lion, New Zealand’s largest alcohol beverage company, since 2003, initially starting with labelling adhesives. By demonstrating a deep understanding of the customer’s needs and constantly innovating to exceed their expectations, Henkel eventually won the tender to supply all of Lion’s adhesives requirements in 2012. Since then, substantial savings and outstanding improvements in product quality, yield gains and reduction in waste have been achieved. For example, changing to the Henkel polyolefin hotmelt process has provided significant maintenance cost savings because of less charring and superior self-cleaning properties.
