The Swiss chemical company Sika has expanded its production facilities in Russia by opening plant for the production of additives to concrete near Yekaterinburg, states the Company’s release.
Sika intends to localize a production facility for manufacturing innovative construction chemicals in the territory of Tatarstan. Stage-by-stage deployment of several production facilities is scheduled. The first project will be launched in the first quarter of 2019 in the Khimgrad industrial park in Kazan. The second stage of development will be considerably wider. Implementation start is scheduled for 2021. This will be preceded by the project elaboration and the search for suitable territory.
The Swiss concern Sika, the world’s recognized leader in production of materials for the construction industry and transportation machine building launched its ninth plant in Russia. The new production in Lobna of the Moscow Region will specialize in manufacture of polymer membranes used for roof and below grade waterproofing. The launch of this plant means localization of yet another product line which makes it possible to increase the share of Russia-produced products to 60% by the end of 2018.
Swiss group Sika will build a construction materials plant in Tatarstan, said Sergey Zyuzya, CEO for the Russian Federation on March 23. Initial phase investment is estimated at 200 million rubles. Nizhnekamskneftekhim is considered as the main supplier of raw materials.
Sika, Swiss chemical manufacturer, intends to expand its presence in Lobnya by launching production of polymer roofing and waterproofing membranes, Adrian Vidmer, Sika AG financial director, said on Friday.
The Swiss chemical concern Sika has inaugurated its first production facility in the Far East. According to the company's PR function, the enterprise with its maximum capacity of 3.5 ktpa of concrete additives is located in Artem, 38 km from Vladivostok. Total investments into the project exceed CHF 70 thousand. Sika has production facilities, research laboratories, technical support centers and trading offices in 99 countries of the world.
The membrane market in Russia grows faster than the construction market, the company reports, the 6% annual growth of PVC-membranes production is forecast until 2020.
Due to the production of PVC-membranes in Russia the company will significantly decrease the transportation and logistics expenses, Paul Schuler, Executive Director of Sika, said. Earlier, the Lobnya plant produced dry mix mortars and high performance additives.
PVC-membranes are used for waterproofing of roofs, cellars, underground parking and tunnels.
Sika, a Swiss chemical company, which is the leader in the production of materials and technologies for construction and transport engineering, has started a high-tech manufacture of floor epoxy coatings in the Moscow regional city of Lobnya.
Investment in the launch of the manufacture amounted to 50 million rubles (over $880,000). Thus, Sika was able to locate the production in Russia, whereas previously these products had been supplied from abroad.
Epoxy products released by the plant will be supplied to construction sites of Russia and CIS countries. This is the third enterprise opened by the group on the territory of the Moscow region, and the seventh in Russia.
Sika, an international chemical group corporation, spoke about further plans for the company’s development in Russia. Currently, there are six of its plants in the country, three of which have been launched over the past year and a half. By the end of 2018, Sika plans to open three more new production facilities on the territory of the Russian Federation.
Sika, the Swiss group of companies specializing in production of construction chemicals and transport engineering, plans to open three new plants in Russia prior to 2018 in Yekaterinburg, Volgograd and Lobnya.
It will be already the third Sika plant in Lobnya and the second one in Volgograd.
Swiss Sika is ready to invest 15mln Euro into the development of its business in Russia, the company informed. From 2003 it spent 30mln Euro on different projects in Russia including the modernization of the dry building materials plant in Rzhev. Its capacity is assumed to be increased from 10ths ton to 90ths ton/y. Thus, Sika relies to expand its share on the Russian building chemistry market up to 10%. Sika is an international concern for the production of building materials and technologies. In Russia it keeps three plants.
