ROCKY HILL, Conn. - March 28, 2008... Based on its commitment to success and ability to meet a set of challenging objectives, the industrial group of Henkel has been awarded a Prime Source Award from Atlanta, Georgia-based EIS, a leading industrial distributor. EIS President and CEO, Robert Thomas, presented the award to Henkel's Distribution Account Executive Ken Helfers, at a special ceremony on January 19th in Orlando, Florida.

Henkel and EIS have been supplier-distributor partners since 1989, with EIS representing LoctiteŽ Industrial adhesives, sealants and assembly equipment throughout North America. In an effort to recognize outstanding commitment and support of its suppliers, EIS launched the Prime Source Award program in 2007. Eligibility for the program is predicated on exceeding annual sales of $1,000,000.00 of the supplier's products. Criteria for winning one of the prestigious awards includes achieving sales revenue growth of at least 7%, a total profitability index improvement of at least 10 points over the previous year and positive results from a sales and customer development field survey of EIS sales and management personnel. Henkel successfully met or exceeded all of the award conditions, thus resulting in the materials leader's win.

Commenting on Henkel's achievement, EIS President, Bob Thomas, says, "The EIS Prime Source Award was designed as more than a sales achievement, as we fully recognized that excellent results are not solely dependent on good products. The sales support, applications expertise and product development know-how of the Henkel team are what makes our partnership with them so successful. We heartily congratulate them on winning one of the first Prime Source Awards and exemplifying supplier excellence."

"Our partnership with EIS has been extremely successful as evidenced by our long association with this top-notch firm," said Kevin Boyle, Henkel North American vice president of industrial distribution. "Our shared commitment to ensuring that our customer's current and future manufacturing requirements are met enables Henkel to be honored with such a prestigious award."

Over 50 EIS suppliers were eligible for the 2007 Prime Source Awards, with qualification being an achievement in and of itself. At the January 19th ceremony, fourteen suppliers-including both Henkel's electronics and industrial groups -- were honored as the first winners of this awards contest.
