Henkel will spend up to €18 million expanding its research and development. The company has committed to a four-year investment plan aiming to develop new advanced materials for use in a broad range of industrial manufacturing.
The focus is on developing resins used for 3D printing and will also have a sales and support function for clients buying 3D printers on site – including those requiring custom-made parts. Resins used in Additive Manufacturing were already being produced on site prior to this investment.

Henkel’s Tallaght site was chosen as the regional hub for Europe due to the existing team’s leading R&D knowledge and experience in resins and other adhesive technologies, and because of the site’s proximity to Henkel Ireland’s production and R&D bases,”

Dr Michael Todd, global head of innovation at Henkel Adhesive Technologies.

“The cluster of leading medtech, aerospace and other industries using 3D printing, made Ireland a natural choice to create a regional hub for Europe,”

Dr. Matthew Holloway, Director of technology centre at Henkel

Henkel has agreed on partnerships with many companies including HP and Carbon 3D while it is also installing specialized equipment and devices for Additive Manufacturing Research.
