In 1888 Josef Henkel founded a roofing company in Dingelstädt / Eichsfeld and thus also today’s company. When Johannes Henkel took over management in the 1930s, he moved the company to Göttingen. In 1954 the construction of the planing mill and various storage buildings began. Quickly Holz Henkel developed into one of the largest and most powerful suppliers of wood and planed timber products in Germany.
