STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Henkel announces that the company’s new North American Consumer Goods headquarters, at 200 Elm Street in downtown Stamford, was put into operation today, signifying the culmination of an integration of several Connecticut locations into one. Approximately 425 employees from Henkel’s Beauty Care and Laundry & Home Care businesses moved into the new location today.
“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 well-known brands including Persil®, Purex®, and all® detergents, Snuggle® fabric softeners, 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. Partners in establishing Henkel’s presence in Stamford include BLT (the building’s owner), CBRE (commercial real estate), Turner Construction, and Ware Malcomb (architects).
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.
