Sika chose Surrey as the location for its new ultramodern production site because of the city’s geographic proximity to metropolitan region Vancouver and easier delivery to neighboring Northern US. The Greater Seattle area is within quick reach. As is the case in Vancouver, construction investments are presently at a high level. New office complexes and private residential construction are driving growth. Major companies which are based in this area, such as Amazon, Boeing, Microsoft or Starbucks, are investing a lot in in-house construction projects. And building professionals buying Sika products in building material stores are becoming increasingly numerous and significant.
