In April, the company resumed the work of the plant in the western region, and in May - in the Kyiv region, Told me general manager of "Henkel Bautechnik" in Ukraine, Vasyl Dudnyk.
Instead, the fate and condition of two more factories, which are located in temporarily occupied territories and in war zones in the Kharkiv and Kherson regions, remain unknown.
"Henkel does not operate in the temporarily occupied territories. Considering the length of the war and the above factors, it is too early to talk about the losses... (In Ukraine) the company continues to conduct its business activities and has decided not to take advantage of the reduced wartime tax rates, but to continue to support the budget by paying taxes in full. Ukrainian-made building materials for the reconstruction of the country are one of the urgent needs," said Vasyl Dudnyk.
According to him, during the war, Henkel employees from European countries collected about €100 to help Ukraine. We are talking about both humanitarian missions and support for production workers in Ukraine.
Also, about 80 million hryvnias were directed to humanitarian projects and the transfer of products to support victims and refugees, says Vasyl Dudnyk.
"In the west of Ukraine, in the administrative and production buildings of the company, in the first days of the war, volunteers of Henkel Bautechnik (Ukraine) created a temporary shelter for refugees," the entrepreneur said.
In addition, according to him, the company plans to donate Ceresit products in the amount of about 40 million hryvnias for the renewal of social infrastructure facilities after the end of hostilities.
"Henkel Bautechnik (Ukraine)" is one of the largest manufacturers of construction mixtures in Ukraine. He owns such trademarks as Thomsit, Ceresit, Metylan and "Moment". Currently, the company has announced the termination of operations on the territory of the Russian Federation.
