P. HENKEL GmbH was founded as Peter Henkel KG in 1962 and currently has its seat in Kreuztal. The family-owned company has been closely connected to waste management for decades. During this time, it has become popular as an innovative company.

Willy Otto, the grandfather of current managing director Christoph W. Henkel, founded OTTO KG in 1934. He has since been deemed a pioneer in waste management. Most of his life revolved around creating solutions for avoiding, removing and recycling waste.

The company added the business area of sewer items in 1997. It is one of the market leaders in Germany. Since 2002, P. HENKEL GmbH has driven sale of special waste and garbage bins, most of all the MGB with spherical base that was still developed by Willy Otto.

We are aware of our responsibility towards society and the future generations. Climate protection, sustainability and economic use of resources have been a fixed part of our corporate culture for many years.

Our target is finding smart product solutions that increase the recycling ratio and therefore protect our environment sustainably and effectively. For this reason, e.g. the fat recycling bin 'FATBOXX' was developed to collect used cooking oils, fats and grease and food wastes and liquid slops. These wastes can be reused, e.g. for production of biodiesel.

We continually improve our production procedures and thus contribute to minimising the effects on the environment. Our products are stacking- and transport-optimised and can be recycled in large parts. Production within the EU ensures short transport paths. This comes with clear savings in fuels and thus also considerable reduction of CO2-emissions.
