LIMA, PERU: Sika has opened new headquarters in the metropolitan area of Lima, Peru and introduced a modern plant for the production of concrete admixtures, mortar products, and acrylic liquid applied membranes (LAM). With this new plant, Sika is tripling its production capacities and strengthening its market position in Peru.

At the new site in Lucumo, Sika has commissioned a modern plant for mortars and admixtures. The acrylic LAM manufacturing equipment has also been moved to the new site from the existing plant in Lurin, and further modernized. The new factory and supply centre will result in a threefold increase in overall capacity. Optimal production processes and efficiency are key features of this new production plant.

The new headquarters, with modern laboratories as well as new training facilities, will improve the customer experience and demonstrate the innovation power of Sika. Future expansion plans envisage the addition of facilities for the manufacturing of polymers for high-performance concrete admixtures and waterproofing solutions for building structures.

“With the new site, we have laid the foundations for further expanding our activities in Peru and sharpening our competitive position. With a population of 11 million, the greater Lima area is Peru’s social and economic powerhouse and has a flourishing construction industry. In Latin America, our strategic focus is on big cities and metropolitan areas, and our aim is to fully unlock the potential of the growing market through our investment,” said Christoph Ganz, Regional Manager Americas.
