As part of its global solidarity program in the fight against the corona crisis, Henkel has announced that it will provide production capacities at short notice in order to produce disinfectants. Within just one week, the company converted a production facility at its Düsseldorf site and produced the first 25,000 liters of hand disinfectants. Henkel will donate them to surrounding hospitals and public institutions. Next week, the company will continue the production and will produce the same amount of disinfectant.
“With our comprehensive solidarity program, we want to contribute to the fight against the corona pandemic. We are very proud that the team at our headquarters in Düsseldorf was able to provide the production capacity at such short notice to produce disinfectants for medical use,” says Carsten Knobel, Chief Executive Officer of Henkel.
With this week’s production alone, Henkel expects to be able to cover the needs of the major Düsseldorf hospitals and public institutions for the coming weeks. Henkel also took into account the demand from the vicinities of the 15 German sites. Delivery and distribution will be organized in close coordination with the local health authorities.
