BAAR, SWITZERLAND: Sika AG has expanded its manufacturing capacity in Pakistan and is responding to the country's construction boom by commissioning a new factory for mortar products and concrete admixtures.

Demand in the infrastructure and residential construction segments, in particular, is enormous. With its rapidly growing population of over 200 million, Pakistan is one of the world’s most populous countries.

The new factory for concrete admixtures and mortars is located in Pakistan’s second biggest city – Lahore, in the north of the country and one of the world’s largest metropolitan regions. With the new investments and the simultaneous relocation of an existing mortar manufacturing facility from Lahore to Karachi in the south of the country, Sika is creating the basis for future growth in a booming market. It is estimated that the construction industry in Pakistan will grow on average by 12 percent a year between now and 2020.

“The new facility in the north and the expansion of our location in the south will enable us to continue to grow significantly faster than the construction market in Pakistan, and hence to strengthen our competitive position thanks to local production. Our focus in Pakistan is on the concrete, refurbishment and flooring target markets, in which we want to continue driving forward our business activities,” said Ivo Schadler, regional manager EMEA, Sika.
