Sika to establish concrete admixtures factory in Tanzania

Published by
World Cement,


Sika is setting up production in Tanzania and is opening a concrete admixtures factory. Sika is the first company to manufacture these products locally. Plans are already being made to add a mortar products manufacturing line.

The company aims to establish a local supply chain in Tanzania, in order to benefit from planned investments in infrastructure.

Paul Schuler, Regional Manager EMEA and designated CEO: “By establishing a new concrete admixtures and mortar production plant in the metropolis of Dar es Salaam, we are gaining an early foothold as a local producer in this growth market. In Tanzania, as in other African countries, major infrastructure projects are either in progress or at the planning stage, and we intend to supply our products to these projects. With currently 19 national subsidiaries and 17 factories we have established a comprehensive presence in Africa.”
