Half of all the cars produced worldwide contain Sika products. That is around 40 million vehicles every year. One in four car windshields is adhesively bonded using Sika products. These "invisible" high-performance products help the automotive industry find practical solutions to current issues in vehicle construction, such as crash resistance and lightweight design. Thanks to Sika, vehicles are becoming safer, lighter, more economical and more environmentally friendly.
In a ranking measuring growth in sales revenues among the top 100 Swiss companies, Sika has moved up and enjoyed one of the best improvements in the ranking. The assessment was conducted recently by Handelszeitung, a leading Swiss business weekly. Only 29 of the companies assessed in 1975 remained in the top 100 and just 4 of those improved their ranking.
Sika’s leading position in the development and production of systems and products for bonding, sealing, damping, reinforcing and protecting has been strengthened by two key investments: A new production facility for admixtures has been opened in Denver, and the Sika site in the greater area of Atlanta has been expanded by a mortar plant.
The Waterview Connection project, Auckland, is one of the most important infrastructure developments ever to take place in New Zealand. Sika New Zealand's involvement has been to supply the specialty superplasticer ViscoCrete® admixture for more than 24,000 pre-cast concrete segments.
