Novamelt now part of Henkel Adhesive Technologies

Enhancing competence in the area of pressure sensitive adhesives

Henkel, the leading solution provider for adhesives, sealants and functional coatings worldwide, has further expanded its portfolio. With the acquisition of Germany-based Novamelt GmbH in June 2015, Henkel is enhancing its competence in the area of pressure sensitive adhesives. Novamelt offers a full range of specialized hotmelt adhesives and customized solutions. This will allow even more customers worldwide to benefit from the long-standing development, application and production expertise of both companies while meeting the highest quality standards.

In fiscal 2014, Novamelt GmbH, based in Wehr, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, generated sales of around 50 million euros. For Henkel, the acquisition does not only constitute an even more comprehensive adhesive portfolio, but is also in line with the corporate strategy.
“Targeted investments in complementary leading technologies are an integral part of our global strategy,” says Csaba Szendrei, Henkel Corporate Senior Vice President, Packaging and Consumer Goods Adhesives. “Novamelt’s solutions perfectly fit to our existing pressure sensitive adhesives business.” Both parties agreed not to disclose any financial details about the transaction.
