SHANGHAI, CHINA: Henkel’s Dragon Plant factory in Shanghai will be the largest state-of-the-art adhesives factory in the world when it opens this September. The Dragon Plant will consolidate two former plants into one multi-technology site. This will enable Henkel to expand its capacities and respond to rapidly increasing demand, especially in emerging markets.

The factory will adhere to Henkel’s sustainability strategy. The factory saves energy by an air compressor in the utility building that retains heat and uses it to warm up the water used in the plant. All of the plant’s processes have been evaluated in line with Henkel’s ambition to make the Dragon Plant a benchmark factory for sustainability.
