In addition to the mortar production unit, which has a capacity of 20,000 tons per year, the facility will house a modern laboratory, as well as a new concrete admixtures logistics hub for southern Greece. A production unit for liquid applied membranes for waterproofing and roofing applications will be installed in a subsequent step. The new premises in Greece enable Sika to offer its customers an optimized supply chain, a locally produced and enhanced product portfolio and a greater level of customer service.

Even when conditions are challenging, we continue to develop our supply chain in well-defined markets, expand our market share and strengthen Sika’s competitive position.”
