Henkel has recently completed the acquisition of a cosmetics plant in Russia from Austrian company Wellchem Holding GmbH, thus expanding its manufacturing footprint in the Eastern Europe, which is one of the biggest and most important markets for the group. The fully operative factory is located near Moscow in the Noginsk area.
