Sika is expanding its supply chain footprint in Thailand by inaugurating a mortars and concrete admixtures plant. The new facility in Saraburi, 100 km north of Bangkok, will be the Group’s second in the country, and the investment will enable Sika to meet the needs of Thailand’s booming construction market, expand its local product portfolio and continue its strong growth.
The new Saraburi plant is one of Sika’s biggest factories in South East Asia and has been built on a 25 000 m2 plot. It has a production capacity of 100 000 tpy of mortars and 65 000 tpy of concrete admixtures. The facility includes a large warehouse for the storage of raw materials and finished goods and an office building.
Heinz Gisel, Regional Manager Asia/Pacific: "After our existing plant in Chonburi reached its limits, we consequently invested in additional production capacities. The new plant will enable us to maintain our strong growth in Thailand in terms of production volume, sales and market share. South East Asia is one of the regions where Sika generates some of the Group’s highest growth rates, and we are well positioned to continue this positive development."
