Sika opens new production facility in Tanzania

Sika is setting up production in Tanzania and is opening a concrete admixtures factory. Sika is the first company to manufacture these products locally. Plans are already being made to add a mortar products manufacturing line. The company’s aim in establishing a local supply chain in the East African state, which has a population of 50 million, is to benefit from planned investments in infrastructure.

The growth in construction in Tanzania is being driven by extensive investments in energy supplies and logistics infrastructure such as port installations and railways. Plans include the building of a 2200 km rail network and total investments of just under CHF 8 billion. Forecasts indicate that the Tanzanian construction sector is set to grow by just under 7 % in 2017 and by 8 % per year in the period up to 2025.
