Sika inaugurates second concrete admixtures plant in Thailand
The new Sika plant in Saraburi is one of Sika's biggest factories in South East Asia and has been built on a 25,000 square meter plot.

BAAR, SWITZERLAND: Sika AG has inaugurated its second mortars and concrete admixtures plant in Saraburi, Bangkok; expanding its supply chain footprint in Thailand. This latest investment will enable Sika to meet the needs of Thailand’s booming construction market, expand its local product portfolio and continue its strong growth.

The new Saraburi plant is one of Sika's biggest factories in South East Asia and has been built on a 25,000 square meter plot. It has production capacity for 100,000 tonnes of mortars and 65,000 tonnes of concrete admixtures per year. A spacious warehouse for the storage of raw materials and finished goods and an office building complement the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. Sika’s presence in Thailand dates back to 1988.

“After our existing plant in Chonburi reached its limits, we consequently invested in additional production capacities. The new plant will enable us to maintain our strong growth in Thailand in terms of production volume, sales and market share. South East Asia is one of the regions where Sika generates some of the Group’s highest growth rates, and we are well positioned to continue this positive development," said Heinz Gisel, regional manager Asia Pacific, Sika.
