Press release date: February 20, 2007

Irvine, California, February 20, 2007

With its India strategic growth plans officially announced to the market in mid-2006, Henkel is quickly moving forward with its developmental targets and has confirmed that it will expand its existing plant in Pune, India to incorporate a solder paste blending facility for its leading Multicore brand solder paste products. The new addition will be dedicated to both tin-lead and lead-free solder paste blending specifically for materials destined for the Indian electronics market and will be operational by October 2007.

"The Indian electronics market is a very high priority for Henkel," says Bhavesh Muni, India Global Director of Business Development at Henkel. "We have already invested significant resources and the establishment of solder paste production capabilities to support our customer base locally further illustrates our long-term commitment to the region."

The 38,000 square foot Henkel facility, located just outside of Pune, India, is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 qualified and has been operational for over 17 years, producing LoctiteŽ brand adhesives for the industrial and automotive markets. The new SnPb and Pb-free solder paste blending facility will necessitate the hiring of additional personnel to support the operation and Henkel projects that all of this plant's capacity will be earmarked for consumption in the India region.

"We are very enthused about this expansion and the addition of yet another production site and the further extension of Henkel's global footprint," comments Patrick Trippel, President of the electronics group of Henkel. "We have pledged global resources and local support to all Henkel customers and we are delivering on that promise."
