Sika opens new mortar production plant in eastern China

By Mary Page Bailey |

Sika AG (Baar, Switzerland) has further expanded its production capacity in the rapidly growing Chinese construction market by opening a new mortar production facility in Jiaxing City, in the province of Zhejiang in Eastern China. The commissioning of the new facility is Sika’s response to high demand in the region. At the same time, this step guarantees optimized logistics, shorter transportation routes for raw materials and finished goods, and a reduction in CO2 emissions.

With its latest investment in the expansion and improvement of its supply chain in China, Sika is targeting further growth in the greater Zhejiang region, one of China’s most economically prosperous areas. Up to now, the technologies for construction projects in Eastern China were produced at the Shanghai and Suzhou plants. Sika can now meet the customers’ demand locally in all three metropolitan regions with a booming construction economy, providing a more sustainable and service-oriented solution. Both customers and the environment will benefit greatly.

Mike Campion, Regional Manager Asia/Pacific: “With our latest investment in capacity expansion, we are establishing a much broader production base in China and gearing our production footprint for further dynamic growth. We will ensure supplies to our customers, in China’s fast-paced construction market, more quickly and sustainably to improve competitiveness. Our goal is to continue our above-average growth compared to the market while reducing our overall environmental footprint.”
