Sika has opened a new production plant in Turkey. The 19,000 square- meter facility, located in a modern industrial park in Tuzla on the Asian side of Istanbul, employs 40 people in manufacturing admixtures, mortars, coatings as well as resins for flooring. Its modern equipment not only makes the new plant a state of the art facility but also contributes to a substantial increase in Turkish production capacities.
Turkey is a significant market for Sika and an important production base for supplying customers also in Central Asia and the Gulf region. The new plant represents another step in Sika's expansion in growth markets in the IMEA—India, Middle East, East Africa—region.
