Sika continues to expand its business in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with the opening of a new factory in Dubai. An existing production plant for concrete admixtures was moved to the new location and expanded. A state-of-the-art mortar line and a reactor for the production of polymers, which form the basis of high-performance concrete admixtures, were newly installed. The new location will also be established as a strategic distribution and distribution center in the region.

Most recently, the Construction Chemicals Group achieved strong double-digit sales growth of 13.9 percent for the first half of the current financial year, setting a new sales record of around CHF 3.5 billion.
