With great pleasure we present to you the 17th edition of ambitions. Encounter Sika’s authentic qualities and additional values up close! “Autonomous driving”, for example, will become a reality. Rinspeed unveiled its “XchangE” concept at the 2014 Geneva motor show. Rinspeed is putting the “people in the car” at the centre of the „XchangE“ study. And Sika is fully involved in this innovative vision of the future.
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.

Being a pioneer, means to be the best, to pave the way for the best solution, to be close to the customer. In collaboration with my partners innovation permeates my work and provides facts for better sales. Customers benefit from new ideas, best-in-class solutions and from a vision of growth, development and performance.
The Sika Spirit is a synonym of the strong set of values and principles which makes up the DNA of the company. Five management principles are expressing the corporate culture and are the foundation of future success: customers first, courage for innovation, sustainability & integrity, empowerment & respect, manage for results.

“We support local communities to improve people’s lives and the environment, and to reinforce our commitment to our staff who are members of the community in which we work. Since 2010 we are a strategic partner of Operation Smile Vietnam (OSV). This is one of the annual sponsorships of Sika Vietnam, which is not only meaningful to children but also to Sika employees who are volunteering.”
