POINTE-CLAIRE, Que. — Sika Canada’s new mortars and concrete admixtures plant in Surrey, BC is now fully operational.

The 2,800 square-metre plant represents the company’s expanding footprint farther west from its Point-Claire, Que. base.

The company, a subsidiary of Sika AG in Switzerland, says it’s new plant is based on the company’s lean and efficient manufacturing process, which includes a modular mortar plant and liquid concrete admixture blending equipment that produces high-range water-reducers, water-reducers, air-entrainers, set-retarders and set-accelerators.

The new building also includes two laboratories for quality control, an integrated warehouse and an office space for administrative and sales personnel.

Sika says the automated plant meets local environmental regulations for air quality, noise management and the handling of light chemical materials.

This new facility brings the number of Sika’s production sites to 18 in North America, four of which are in Canada.
