Henkel celebrates 50 years of Pritt.
To mark this special anniversary, our UK team decided to get creative by bringing their childhood dreams to life in support of ‘We craft for children’.

The best way to see if a company could be a great match for you is to visit it yourself, isn’t it? That’s why Henkel opens its doors to students from various universities, like these young visitors from Munich who came for a tour some weeks ago to learn about our latest innovations.
