Sika recently announced the opening of a new manufacturing facility in Querétaro, Mexico. The new factory, which includes an integrated logistics center, will reportedly manufacture and locally supply the company’s acoustic treatments and body structural products. The Mexican subsidiary of Faist ChemTec, acquired by Sika at the start of 2018, will also be integrated into the new facility.

“Our location in Querétaro is strategically located in the middle of the customer network we support in Mexico,” said Thomas Hasler, head industry.

“This means we are close to the many vehicle and component manufacturing facilities already established in Mexico, as well as the new plants coming on line. As the market grows, so do we, continually adding value and support for our customers. The site is also home to one of our large construction materials plants, which gives the added advantage of a shared infrastructure and logistics network.”
