BAAR, SWITZERLAND: Sika AG has opened a new concrete admixture factory in Senegal, expanding its production capacity in West Africa. The new plant is the first in the country and will be further expanded with the addition of a mortar production facility in due course.

With a total of 19 national subsidiaries and 20 factories, Sika has a strong presence in Africa.

"Senegal is one of the fastest growing West African countries, and we are gaining an early foothold in these growth markets. Large-scale investment projects in infrastructure, transport, energy and water plus recently discovered oil reserves are making a crucial contribution to the emerging country's development. Our growth strategy in Africa has paid off. Over the last five years we have increased sales by more than 18 percent per year," said Ivo Schadler, regional manager EMEA, Sika.
