From Mexico to Argentina
Twelve countries, nearly 3,700 employees from five time zones, and four languages – this is Henkel in Latin America. The region is one of Henkel’s emerging markets, and achieved organic sales growth of 4.4 percent in 2014. Business development in Mexico was key to this growth, Oriol Bonaclocha, President of the Mexico Group, confirmed. “Our business in Mexico is growing steadily,” Bonaclocha said. “The international environment is complicated, but we have many aspects in our favor: recent acquisitions, investments in infrastructure, adequate plant capacities, and the expansion of our shared service center activities.”
Henkel is active in twelve countries in Latin America, with local and international brands and technologies from the three business units Laundry & Home Care, Beauty Care und Adhesive Technologies. Brands from Henkel which can be found on the shelves in Mexico include Persil, Pril, Palette, Syoss, Dial, Pattex and Pritt.
Henkel has 13 production sites in Latin America which are divided into three subregions: the Mexico Group, which includes Mexico, Guatamala, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic; the Andean Region, which includes Colombia, Venezuela, Peru and Ecuador; and Henkel Mercosur, which includes Brazil, Argentina, and Chile.
