Sika is opening a new production plant for concrete admixtures near Yekaterinburg/Russia. In the area around the plant, there are five cities with populations of over one million and attractive construction markets. Large parts of the Volga region and Siberia can also be supplied from the new site.
The Ural region, with its capital city of Yekaterinburg, is one of the most prosperous regions in the country. Around 90 % of Russia’s natural gas and two-thirds of its oil production come from this region. The proximity to clients and shorter transport routes significantly strengthen Sika’s competitive position. The new production plant in Beryozovsky, to the north-east of Yekaterinburg, will thus deliver cost-savings and make it possible to supply customers in this fastgrowing region with customized concrete admixtures for demanding construction projects.
