With the opening of a new facility near Houston, Sika is further expanding its presence in the fast-growing US market. The 16-hectare site will be used for manufacturing concrete admixtures and mortar products.
Sika’s new factory has opened following a 12-month construction period. The site also houses special equipment for the production of polymers that form the backbone of concrete admixtures. With a total of 20 million inhabitants and a booming construction industry, the megacities of Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio are among North America’s fastest-growing urban areas. From this new site, Sika will focus on developing the Texas and southwestern US markets. It will also open a training center for customers and applicators, as well as setting up sales and customer service functions.
