The growth of the world population and the increasing demand for higher living standards all over the world feed the hunger for resources like copper, iron and coal. The mining industry is growing fast. The need for fast rock support like shotcrete (sprayed concrete) or durable transport infrastructure made out of concrete is growing accordingly. Sika provides products, expert knowledge and service in modern day mining.
Myanmar’s political and economic opening has triggered a flurry of investment. The technical center, which Sika opened back in 2013, is charged with defining formulations for concrete admixtures and developing customer-specific solutions that deliver the concrete properties required for the project in question.
The Sika success story continued in 2015 with a record year. Total sales for 2015 increased by 6.2% at constant exchange rates. All regions contributed to the broad-based growth, as did investments in new factories and national subsidiaries.
