Sika’s growth is driven to a large extent by innovation. Innovation can be the invention of a completely new molecule, or it can be identifying a new way to apply an existing technology. The key factor is that the innovation represents a benefit for customers, applicators, and those who live in and use buildings and vehicles. That is why Sika’s employees listen very carefully and observe very closely — working together across teams and across regions to deliver timely solutions for the world of today and of tomorrow.
