Hard Hat Required - Mind Mania
February 04, 2009
Henkel Construction Company challenged kids to design and build a project as part of NIACC's Mind Mania Summer Camp. We had representatives from all phases of construction including design, estimating, project management, superintendents and laborers teach the kids about what it would take to complete each task. Each team researched, designed and built a birdhouse under a tight deadline. Upon completing their projects, the kids toured an actual worksite and saw a crane in action and got one of the first peeks at the new NIACC Recreation Center project that was completed in the fall of 2008. They now have a new appreciation of what it takes to build a project.
Henkel Headliners Fight Cancer
February 04, 2009
"Henkel Headliners" laced up their walking shoes and raised more than $2,200 for Hancock County's Relay for Life event in 2008. Each year the Headliners hold a bake sale and various fundraisers to help in the fight against cancer. For the Headliners, Relay for Life is about much more than just raising money for cancer research. "It's really about creating awareness in the community," said Kim Ostrander. "It puts faces on all those statistics about cancer; since cancer has directly touched one of our team members it motivates us more to help fight this deadly disease."
Henkel Employees will be Warmer in Winter
February 04, 2005
The Henkel workforce has always met the everyday challenges of a project. Working faster and more efficiently are two specific challenges that project owners place on us with each new job. Safety has always been an important part of Henkel's business. It is important to us that our employees return home to their families uninjured by their work. This focus has yielded one of the lowest Insurance Modification Ratings in the industry. In 2005, Henkel employees worked the entire year without a lost time accident. At the annual employee meeting, each full-time employee that had been with the company for the entire year was awarded a new Carhartt Arctic Coat as a small token of appreciation.
