Henkel’s Adhesive Technologies business unit has started to build a new production facility for aerospace applications at its site in Montornès, Spain, to meet growing demand for high-impact materials.

The facility will include new buildings and equipment for additional production and warehouse capacities. The first customer deliveries are projected for 2019.

‘The global demand for passenger aircraft is expected to double by 2034, making this a very attractive growth market for us,’ said Jan-Dirk Auris, executive vice president. ‘Aircraft manufacturers and their suppliers are ramping up capacities to support this significant increase in the build rate. Our investment in Montornès will provide additional production capabilities in order to further support global growth in the aerospace market.’
