Engineering Sika Inaugurates New Plant for Liquid Membranes and Mortar Production
Sika has inaugurated a new plant for liquid membranes and mortar production in China to strengthen and expand its presence in the region as well as to meet the growing demand for high-quality, sustainable products from the construction industry.
Baar/Switzerland – Sika is opening a new plant for liquid membranes and mortar production in Chongqing, a city in southwestern China with 30 million inhabitants. By commissioning the new plant, Sika is expanding its position in this rapidly growing metropolitan area, which is set to become even more important as China is creating the Chengdu-Chongqing business district with almost 100 million inhabitants.
The automotive, finance, and logistics sectors are well represented in the Chengdu-Chongqing region, and the construction industry benefits from these operations and companies’ efforts to achieve more sustainable production.
With its new state-of-the-art plant in this region, Sika will be well-positioned to meet rising demand from the construction industry for high-quality, sustainable products, and will greatly expand its production capacity. The investment underscores Sika’s commitment to be close to the customer and offer the best product solutions and services on a local basis.
"This new plant reinforces our market position in the important Chengdu-Chongqing business district, which is a core area in China. The result will be a mega-agglomeration that will expand the domestic economy and will generate enormous business potential for Sika. Thanks to the additional production capacity, we will strengthen our position in this booming market and continue to target above-average growth," shares Mike Campion, Regional Manager Asia/Pacific.
