“This is an exciting time for the West Hazleton plant,” said Tricia Fair, Plant Manager. “The West Hazleton facility has a long history of manufacturing Dial® products and we are very pleased that Henkel’s investment will drive growth and bring new jobs to our community. The line expansion is an investment in the future of both the company and the brand’s mission. Dial®has been a trusted brand to families for over seventy years, and we are committed to furthering the brand’s efforts to help deliver clean, healthy skin to consumers everywhere.”
“At Henkel, we’re committed to ensuring that each of our brands has the resources necessary to drive continuous and future growth, and Henkel has invested nearly $5 billion in the US market over the past four years to support that growth,” said Heather Wallace, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Beauty Care North America. “Enhanced production capabilities such as this investment at West Hazleton helps position our beauty care business for success and provide consumers and customers with the innovative, high-quality products they have come to love and expect from Henkel.”
The line officially began production of the Dial products on June 17 and was officially commemorated on June 20 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony led by Heather Wallace, Tricia Fair and the North American Beauty leadership team.
