Sika opens a state-of-the-art factory in Peru and triples its capacity

Sika Peru has opened new headquarters in the metropolitan area of Lima and introduced a modern plant for the production of concrete admixtures, mortar products, and acrylic liquid applied membranes (LAM). With this new plant, Sika is tripling its production capacities and strengthening its market position in Peru.

At the new site in Lucumo, Sika has commissioned a modern plant for mortars and admixtures. The acrylic LAM manufacturing equipment has also been moved to the new site from the existing plant in Lurín, and further modernized. The new factory and supply center will result in a threefold increase in overall capacity. Optimal production processes and efficiency are key features of this new production plant. The new headquarters, with modern laboratories as well as new training facilities, will improve the customer experience and demonstrate the innovation power of Sika. Future expansion plans envisage the addition of facilities for the manufacturing of polymers for high-performance concrete admixtures, and waterproofing solutions for building structures.

Construction industry with strong growth forecasts

Substantial investment in the mining sector and in infrastructure projects is driving Peru’s construction industry. In autumn 2017, the Peruvian government launched an investment program with a volume of just under US$ 9 billion. This program encompasses the construction of more than 7500 km of roads, 46000 houses, and the renovation of drainage systems in several cities.
