Finger Lakes Features: Henkel Expansion and Job Fair

Henkel, formerly Zotos, recently announced the name change and an investment in their Geneva plant of over 17 million.  To support new lines, which will contribute about 45 to 55 percent of total production at the Geneva facility, the company will be creating 180 new jobs at the plant. The company’s facility, acquired by Henkel in 2018, will also be re-branded from Zotos Professional to Henkel to reflect the expansion of its operations beyond professional hair care products to supply essential products like antibacterial soap and hand sanitizers.

Henkel is hosting a drive-thru job fair on Tuesday, Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Henkel Geneva site, 300 Forge Ave. The company said the drive-thru style is to “respect social distancing, as job seekers will not need to get out of their car. Resumes can be handed to recruiters, and job applications will be accepted onsite with the use of tablets.”

The company is recruiting for a variety of manufacturing professional roles. Interested candidates can also find the roles posted on and search for Henkel jobs.
