This acquisition will accelerate growth in the USA and further establish Sika as a comprehensive supplier of solutions for the construction industry.

Market growth in the United States

The market growth for concrete fibers in the United States is out-pacing overall construction growth as the trend is moving towards structural fibers for reinforcement.

The concrete fibers of FRC Industries and the concrete color additives of L.M. Scofield, a company acquired earlier this year, perfectly fit into Sika’s full range of concrete admixtures and allow Sika USA to offer a comprehensive portfolio of concrete additives. The expanded product offering will enable Sika to reach new customers and better penetrate key projects.

Christoph Ganz, Regional Manager North America:

"The acquisition of FRC Industries is a welcome addition to our business and will support the continued growth in line with our Strategy 2018. We are proud to welcome FRC’s employees into the Sika team and we are excited about growing our businesses together.”
