Swiss construction products company Sika is expanding its presence in the UAE with the opening of a new factory in Dubai. The new facility will play a strategic role as a sales and distribution center for the region.
An existing production facility for concrete admixtures has been relocated to the new site and expanded. A state-of-the-art mortar facility and a reactor for producing polymers have been installed and will constitute the basis for the production of high-performance concrete admixtures.
Sika has grouped together and greatly expanded its mortar and concrete admixtures production, warehouse capacity, and offices at the new location in Dubai Industrial City. The local polymer production facility will help to significantly cut costs and make it possible to supply customers located in all states of the GCC with customized concrete admixtures for demanding construction projects.
The site is conveniently located between Dubai and Abu Dhabi and serves the company as its strategic production, distribution, and sales center for the entire GCC area, thus creating the ideal conditions for developing its growth potential in these booming construction markets.
The construction industry is benefiting from growing tourism as well as from the UAE’s development into a regional logistics center and a hub for renewable energies and green technologies.
