Henkel announces the opening of its first MRO Training and Application Centre in the ANZ in Melbourne. Established as part of Henkel’s strategy to be a leading solutions provider in the region, the new centre will allow the company to provide both hands-on technical product application training and a full-service, one-stop shop for surface engineering coating technology under the LOCTITE brand.

LOCTITE coatings are relied upon by heavy industries; the centre will take Henkel’s strategy to the next level by offering professional application service and repair work to its customers.

The MRO Training and Application Centre was officially opened in September 2015 at Henkel’s ANZ head office, Kilsyth. Eugene Robinson, General Manager Adhesives Technologies - Henkel Australia and New Zealand, observed that six months of hard work by their team had resulted in a leading training facility for their sales team, LOCTITE applicators and end users. The MRO Training and Application Centre is fully equipped to rebuild and maintain industrial equipment and provide service engineering expertise to Henkel’s customer base.

According to John Borden, MRO Business Manager – Henkel Asia Pacific, LOCTITE composite coating technology enables their customers to rebuild their equipment in a way that brings added reliability to their plant, while also reducing component replacement costs, energy consumption and shutdown time on typical industrial equipment.

Customers can learn how to extend Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF), reduce Mean Time To Repair (MTTR), and increase Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) through various applications while maintaining their plant and equipment. The centre will also be used to train other service engineering partners throughout the ANZ region.

The new MRO Training and Application Centre positions Henkel as a leader in surface adhesives technology, and offers a full range of training and services with the latest products in machinery adhesives, surface engineering and coatings. The centre also presents Henkel with a wonderful opportunity to promote and showcase the superior performance of its LOCTITE range to applicators and end-users, as well as provide useful hands-on training workshops.
