About The Company
LOCTITE Corporation began in the Trinity College basement laboratory of Dr. Vernon Krieble from Hartford, Connecticut, in 1953. This enterprising chemistry professor developed a cure inhibition system for a unique bonding resin that hardened in the absence of air- an anaerobic sealant.
LOCTITE® made its official public debut at a press conference at the University Club in New York, on July 26, 1956. The promise of solving the age-old problem of loose nuts and bolts in machines and appliances, a problem customers had long ago accepted as unsolvable, led to an incredible flow of inquiries.
In the 1960s, cyanoacrylates – also known as CA or "Superglue", the fast, one-part, room-temperature curing type of industrial adhesive – were added to the LOCTITE® brand. Silicones, epoxies, acrylics and the development of further generations of LOCTITE® anaerobics and cyanoacrylate technology and products followed.
Throughout its history, Loctite® has continuously created markets by discovering opportunities where no one knew they existed. From its founding, based on a product that solved an "unsolvable" problem, LOCTITE® has achieved success through innovation.
In 1997, LOCTITE got acquired by Henkel and remains its primary brand.+ Read More
In order to steer the focus of the entire organization toward our new strategy and ensure its successful implementation, we have defined four strategic priorities:
“Outperform”: We want to leverage the full potential in our product categories in order to gain market shares and thus to outperform our competition by:
- actively managing our portfolio,
- strengthening our top brands,
- launching powerful innovations, and
- focusing on our customers and consumers.
Core, growth and value
In our core categories, we will continue to invest in strengthening and expanding our leading positions. In our growth categories, investments will fuel disproportionately high growth of existing and new segments. In our value categories, investments will be tailored to maximize our profit potential.
Strengthening our brands
We will continue to focus on our top brands such as Persil, Schwarzkopf or Loctite while further consolidating our brand portfolio. By 2016, our top 10 brands are expected to generate approximately 60 percent of total sales (2012: 44 percent). To achieve this, we will expand our global brands and support our top brands with strong innovations and focused marketing investments.
Innovation and customer focus
A consistent innovation process, driving trendbased innovations that are developed to meet the individual needs of our customers and consumers, will help us to reinforce our innovation leadership. By capitalizing on sustainability and on trends such as accessible luxury or convenience, we will ensure that our products remain highly attractive and relevant for our customers and consumers.
The strategic priority “Globalize” describes our differentiated regional strategies to grasp growth opportunities around the world.
Leverage strengths in mature markets
and expand in emerging markets
In mature markets, we will leverage our strengths and generate profitable growth by increasing our brand investments and maintaining our cost focus. By 2016, we aim to gain more top positions in these markets with our strong brands, while increasing profitability.
In emerging markets, we will expand our existing category positions and accelerate growth in countries where we already have a strong presence. We will also selectively enter new growth markets where we do not have a foothold yet.
Speed and efficiency
We are strengthening our global presence continuously.+ Read More
