BAAR, SWITZERLAND: Sika AG said that it is setting up a mortar production facility in Tanzania, Africa and is also opening a concrete admixtures factory. Sika is the first company to manufacture these products locally.

Plans are already being made to add a mortar products manufacturing line. The company’s aim in establishing a local supply chain in the East African state, which has a population of 50 million, is to benefit from planned investments in infrastructure.

“By establishing new concrete admixtures and mortar production plant in the metropolis of Dar es Salaam, we are gaining an early foothold as a local producer in this growth market. In Tanzania, as in other African countries, major infrastructure projects are either in progress or at the planning stage, and we intend to supply our products to these projects. With currently 19 national subsidiaries and 17 factories we have established a comprehensive presence in Africa,” said Paul Schuler, regional manager EMEA and designated CEO, Sika.
