Sika announces national subsidiary in Kuwait
The creation of the 94th subsidiary marks a further step forward in the implementation of Sika's growth strategy
Chemicals company Sika has expanded its position in the Middle East by establishing a new national subsidiary in Kuwait.
The creation of the 94th subsidiary marks a further step forward in the implementation of Sika's growth strategy, which aims to expand the group's international presence to 100 national subsidiaries by 2018.
In a media statement, the company said: "The new national subsidiary positions Sika perfectly to supply high-quality concrete admixtures and refurbishment products directly to customers in Kuwait and to benefit from the country's booming construction market."
"Sika products are already being used in the construction of a new university and several road building projects."
With national subsidiaries in 13 countries, Sika has an extensive local presence in the Middle East.
In Qatar, where a subsidiary was established in 2013, Sika recently won a "mega project".
In the first phase of work on the world's biggest concrete-reinforced reservoir, more than 350,000 m² of Sika Proof A and Sika Proof P membranes are being laid for waterproofing.
