Sika is opening a new plant for liquid membranes and mortar production in Chongqing, a city in southwestern China with 30 million inhabitants. By commissioning the new plant, Sika hopes to expand its position in this rapidly growing metropolitan area. The area is set to become even more important as China is creating the Chengdu-Chongqing business district with almost 100 million inhabitants.

The automotive, finance, and logistics sectors are well represented in the Chengdu-Chongqing region, and the construction industry benefits from these operations and companies’ efforts to achieve more sustainable production. With its new plant in this region, Sika says it will be well-positioned to meet rising demand from the construction industry for high-quality, sustainable products, and will greatly expand its production capacity.

"This new plant reinforces our market position in the important Chengdu-Chongqing business district, which is a core area in China,” said Mike Campion, regional manager Asia/Pacific. “The result will be a mega-agglomeration that will expand the domestic economy and will generate enormous business potential for Sika. Thanks to the additional production capacity, we will strengthen our position in this booming market and continue to target above-average growth.”
