The Swiss parent of Sika Corp. has closed on a forerunner in value-added flatwork, billing Los Angeles-based L.M. Scofield Co. as “a 100-year-old, family-owned company long established as the number one brand of concrete color additives and decorative products in North America.”
“The acquisition of L.M. Scofield further accelerates our growth strategy, [and] provides us with a proven, industry leader in colors for new concrete and refurbishment,” says Sika Regional Manager, North America Christoph Ganz. With strategic production in Los Angeles and Atlanta, he adds, L.M. Scofield offers a complete range of color solution products that are highly regarded and widely specified.
The deal continues Sika’s stepped up North American market development, as reflected in the 2014-15 opening of mortar and admixture plants in Atlanta, Denver, Philadelphia, and Vancouver, B.C., plus last year’s acquisition of California mortar producer BMI.
