Sika relocates to larger production site in Kazakhstan

World Cement,

Sika has relocated its concrete admixture and mortar production facility in Almaty, in the south of Kazakhstan. To a larger site in the city. The new plant will serve the booming Kazakh market, as well as the construction sector in the neighbouring country of Kyrgystan to the south. The country benefits from a strategic location on a key transportation route between Europe and China.

"The expanded production capacity will put us in a good position to capitalise on Kazakhstan's strongly growing construction market," explains Paul Schuler, Regional Manager EMEA. "Infrastructure projects such as the extension of the rail rapid transit system in the country's capital, Astana, expansion of the Almaty metro and ring road, or major developments such as Abu Dhabi Plaza in Astana are all at the planning or construction stage. Abu Dhabi Plaza is a new-build office, residential and shopping complex that will incorporate central Asia's tallest building, with a height of around 380 meter."
