Sika has opened a new mortar products plant in North America, with the intention of focusing on the huge market potential in interior finishing in the fast-growing cities on the US East Coast. This is its second new mortar plant in North America in the last two years. The new plant is an extension of Sika’s existing concrete admixture plants. The capacity of the admixture plant has also been increased.
Christoph Ganz, Regional Manager North America: "We are continuing the expansion that has taken place in the past two years by investing in Sika’s growth drivers such as mortars. This means that we are expanding our supply chain, and in parallel our sales force and marketing efforts. The strengthening of our presence close to the booming megacities will continue to be our focus in 2016. We are planning to open two new plants in North America, one of which will be in Canada, the other in the US. This will allow us to generate further growth potential both for our customers and for Sika."
