Last week, Henkel’s announcement regarding its annual Supplier Awards drew the most reader interest (Cabot, Clariant, and Wanhua Receive Henkel Supplier Awards): “Henkel Adhesive Technologies has awarded the performance of its strategic partners with its annual Supplier Awards. With these recognitions, the business unit honors the close and successful collaboration across its value chains. Awards this year have been announced for Cabot Corp., Clariant, and Wanhua in the three categories of Operational Excellence, Sustainability, and Innovation.
