Sika has expanded concrete admixture capacity in the growing Mid-Atlantic construction market with a 42,600-sq.-ft. production facility in Stafford, Va. Two 6,000-plus gallon mixers equip the new plant for 50,000 tons’ annual capacity. Along with responding to high demand in the region, the operation guarantees optimized logistics, shorter transportation routes for raw materials and finished goods, and a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions that concrete customers are increasingly tracking in their supply chains.
“The latest investment in the Mid-Atlantic allows us to further strengthen our position in the region’s construction market,” says Sika Concrete Admixtures Senior Vice President Thomas Strittmatter. “This is our response to high demand in the region. It allows us to get our products to valued customers quickly and more efficiently, all while reducing our environmental impact.”
“Sika is committed to ensuring the production of consistent quality products,” adds Vice President of Concrete and Mortars Operations Tim Whitehead. “Customers can be assured that the impressive facility in Stafford utilizes the latest manufacturing equipment, systems, and quality standards.”
