Sika has opened a new plant in Goias mid-western Brazil

GOIAS, BRAZIL: Sika has opened a new plant in Aparecida de Goiania, state of Goias, mid-western Brazil, which is the seventh plant in this country. Goias is one of the fastest growing states in Brazil, providing an excellent platform for Sika to supply the central and northern markets in the country. The latest investment complements Sika’s supply chain which covers the entire Brazilian market.

The new plant brings Sika closer to its customer base in the mid-west of Brazil. Increased customer proximity and higher logistics efficiency help meet the increasing demand for products in the construction markets, mostly concrete admixtures, waterproofing systems and grouts.

“The new plant in Aparecida de Goiana is, in addition to the acquisition of Lwart Quimica earlier this year, a further step in our strategic expansion in Brazil initiated in 2012. Sika now operates seven factories in the country,” said Jan Jenisch, CEO, Sika.
