Sika opens two concrete admixtures plants in Southeast Asia

BAAR, SWITZERLAND: Sika AG said that it is implementing its strategy 2018 by entering into new markets and opening six to eight factories a year, and has now further expanded its presence in Southeast Asia.

With new concrete admixtures production plants in Myanmar and Cambodia, Sika is increasing its proximity to customers in the growing markets, it said.

The new production facility in Myanmar represents a milestone. As the first construction chemicals supplier in the country, Sika is manufacturing locally in a factory near to Yangon.

“By establishing a local production facility, Sika is setting new standards in customer proximity, product quality and direct market development. Customers benefit from short production and delivery times, as well as concrete admixture compositions that are tailored to the local raw materials,” said Heinz Gisel, regional manager Asia/Pacific, Sika.

By opening a new production plant for concrete admixtures in Phnom Penh, Sika is tapping into further potential in Cambodia’s booming construction industry, which grew by 20 percent in 2015. The whole country lacks infrastructure, while the younger generation is growing and moving to the cities.

This is resulting in more investments, particularly from China, Korea and Japan, which are investing heavily in shopping centres, hotels and infrastructure & residential construction projects close to the capital.
