Henkel’s latest acquisition, The Sun Products Corporation, named top workplace
The acquisition of The Sun Products Corporation this summer advanced Henkel to the number 2 position in the North America Laundry Care market, and this month the acquired company celebrated after being named a top workplace.
Hearst Media Services recognized The Sun Products Corporation as a Top Workplace in Connecticut, an accolade based entirely on employee feedback. 85 percent of employees took the survey. Located in Wilton, Connecticut, The Sun Products Corporation employs 2,000 people in North America.
Jeffrey P. Ansell, Chairman, President and CEO of Sun Products, commented: “Being recognized as a top workplace in Connecticut is a true testament to the culture and work environment that the leaders and associates at Sun Products have created. We encourage all associates to be leaders in their area of responsibility, and together, work to bring to life the company’s mission of making everyday lives better.”
The Sun Products Corporation acquisition, worth $3.6bn, was the largest undertaken by Henkel in almost a decade. Brands such as all® and Sun® as well as the fabric conditioner Snuggle® are household names in the region, and the acquired portfolio creates significant potential for expanding Henkel’s footprint in North America.
