Sika Expands Mortar Plant in Serbia


Sika has announced plans to expand its production capacities in Southeast Europe. According to the company, Sika will bring an additional mortar facility as well as a warehouse for raw materials and end-products on stream at its Simanovci site in Serbia.

The company stated that the expanded production capacities and new warehouse will enable Sika to continue to successfully penetrate the growing construction markets in Southeast Europe. Along with catering for the domestic market, the ultra-modern plant will act as a regional production hub for Sika national subsidiaries in the neighboring countries Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, Bosnia, Herzegovina, and Bulgaria, according to the company.

“By investing in this expansion at Simanovci, we are aiming to further enhance our market position in Serbia and Southeast Europe. Thanks to the good construction industry in most countries in the region, our business volume is at a high level. The new facility will ensure that we continue to outpace market growth,” said Ivo Schädler, EMEA regional manager.
