Sika opens production plant in Qatar

Sika is starting operations at a plant in Doha/Qatar for the production of concrete admixtures. The country on the east coast of the Arabian peninsula is an attractive market thanks to large‐scale infrastructure investment and a number of mega projects, both ongoing and planned.

Following the establishment of the national subsidiary in 2012, Sika is expanding its presence in Qatar with its own production facility, thereby positioning itself as a provider of high‐performance product technologies that are now manufactured on a local basis and close to customers. Alongside production lines for concrete‐admixture manufacturing, the main office and a central storage facility will be located at the site.

 

Infrastructure projects driving

the construction sector

As well as investing in stadiums and related infrastructure for the 2022 Soccer World Cup, Qatar is expanding its transport and energy infrastructures with roads, ports, railroads, and power plants. One important major project is the Doha Metro, a rapid transport system linking the capital with its suburbs. The gas sector is also attracting large‐scale investment. Average annual growth of more than 9 % is forecasted for Qatar’s construction industry until 2023.
