Sika opens two factories in Asia

Sika has now expanded its presence in southeast Asia with a new factory for concrete admixtures in Myanmar and another in Cambodia.

Heinz Gisel, regional manager Asia/Pacific: “By establishing a local production facility, Sika is setting new standards in customer proximity, product quality and direct market development. Customers benefit from short production and delivery times, as well as concrete admixture compositions that are tailored to the local raw materials.”

Sika’s additives for high-performance concrete have to date been used in construction projects such as Hanthawaddy International Airport and the Friendship bridge connecting Myanmar and Laos.

The latest construction project currently being carried out with the help of Sika products in Yangon is the Lake Suites project, which combines offices, a hotel and apartments in one development.

By opening a new production plant for concrete admixtures in Phnom Penh, Sika is tapping into further potential in Cambodia’s booming construction industry, which grew by 20% in 2015. The whole country lacks infrastructure, while the younger generation is growing and moving to the cities. This is resulting in more investments, particularly from China, Korea and Japan, which are investing heavily in shopping centers, hotels and infrastructure and residential construction projects close to the capital.
