After building a production facility for concrete admixtures in 2016, this is a further step in extending the presence in the Ethiopian construction market. Ivo Schädler, EMEA Regional Manager: "With the new plant in Ethiopia we are pursuing the implementation of our Africa strategy. Thanks to the new facility we will provide the market with locally manufactured technical mortars and our tile adhesives range. With our strong local presence we can adapt products to meet the specific customer requirements, and make products available with shorter delivery times. We are thus creating the ideal conditions for participating in the country's dynamic construction market.”
