Sika recently announced it has agreed to acquire mortar producer BMI Products of Northern California Inc. The acquisition will reportedly accelerate Sika’s global expansion in the fast-growing mortar business with an extended new supply chain in the western U.S. The BMI plant brings Sika’s mortar footprint to 76 factories worldwide.
The acquisition reportedly complements Sika’s growth strategy in North America, and greatly strengthens its supply chain for mortar products sold throughout the western U.S. It also provides Sika with a known brand of specialty products, and an established customer base in the large California market.
“This acquisition is a further acceleration of the implementation of our global mortar strategy,” said Christoph Ganz, head of Sika’s North America region. It provides us with a solid production platform to further expand the mortars business in the western U.S. We are proud to welcome the new employees into the Sika team and we are excited about growing our business together.”
