Sika has agreed to acquire a leading ­mortar manufacturer in Hong Kong

Sika has agreed to acquire Ronacrete (Far East) Ltd., one of the leading suppliers of repair mortars, tile adhesives and other mortar products in Hong Kong. This acquisition is in line with the global expansion of the high-margin mortar business – a core component of Strategy 2018. The Ronacrete plant brings Sika’s mortar footprint to 89 factories worldwide.

Ronacrete is a leading manufac­turer of repair mortars, tile adhesives and ­other specialty products for the Hong Kong construction industry.

With its excellent technical expertise the company has built up a strong specification business over the last few decades and has established itself as a preferred partner for private and public key developers in Hong Kong. Ronacrete is based in Hong Kong and operates an efficient production facility in the neighbouring Guangzhou province.

Hong Kong is a mega city with a rising demand for refurbishment. The construction market is expected to grow by more than 5 % annually over the course of the next five years, also driven by an increase in public housing projects. By acquiring Ronacrete, Sika will extend its manufacturing footprint to better serve this market. The wider product range and improved market access will allow the combined businesses to fully participate in the growing Hong Kong construction market.
