Henkel has started construction at Shanghai Chemical Industry Park on what it says will be the world’s largest adhesives plant. Requiring an investment of about $72 million, the 428,000-metric-ton-per-year facility will employ a total of 600 people when it comes on-line around the end of 2012. Henkel says the plant will consolidate in Shanghai several existing adhesives facilities that it has been operating in China.
