Sika to acquire US mortar producer, BMI

BAAR, SWITZERLAND: Sika has agreed to acquire mortar producer BMI Products of Northern California Inc, a US-based company active in production and sales of a full range of mortar products and systems for the construction industry. The acquisition will accelerate Sika’s global expansion in the fast growing mortar business with an extended new supply chain in the Western US. The BMI plant brings Sika’s mortar footprint to 76 factories worldwide.

The acquisition of BMI perfectly compliments Sika’s growth strategy in North America and greatly strengthens its supply chain for mortar products sold throughout the Western United States. It also provides Sika with a known brand of specialty products, and an established customer base in the large California market. The acquisition represents a further step in the expansion of Sika’s mortar business. With 31per cent growth in 2014, mortar is Sika’s strongest growing product area as well as one of the key elements of the Strategy 2018.

“This acquisition is a further acceleration of the implementation of our global mortar strategy. It provides us with a solid production platform to further expand the mortars business in the Western US. We are proud to welcome the new employees into the Sika team and we are excited about growing our business together,” said Christoph Ganz, Head of region North America, Sika.
