Strengthening Distribution Business
Sika AG has recently acquired Technokolla S.p.A., a leader in tile adhesive systems in Southern Europe. Based in the northern Italian town of Sassuolo, the company generated sales of around CHF 37 million in 2010 and enjoys a solid presence in neighbouring countries and a global network of sales channels with its own modern pro duction sites. Technokolla was a subsidiary of the privately owned Fincea Group, which leading European ceramic tile manufacturer Iris Ceramica is also part of.
Wider product range, quality and vast experience
With Technokolla’s products on board, Sika will have even greater access to a highly developed distribution network. The new partnership will mean that Sika can expand its market position by adding a new distribution channel and so be able to supply the regional construction industry with an even wider range of products and technologies.
The Technokolla universe is made up of a comprehensive range of mutually compatible complementary products which have been explicitly formulated for fixing ceramic tiles, mosaic, marble, natural stone and lots more besides, ranging from substrates to waterproofing substances, from bonding agents and adhesives to sealants and grouting, and from bio-ecological materials to refurbishing solutions, as well as tools and accessories.
Stringent quality controls plus Technokolla’s vast experience, acquired during a decade of application activity in all parts of the world, allow designers and interior decorators to give full vent to their creative flair, confident of the results of their work and certain of being able to trust in safe and tested products.
