Sika announced that the company has acquired the flooring adhesives business of DriTac. The company stated that the acquired business strengthens Sika’s growth platform for Interior Finishing in the USA with large potential for cross-selling of Sika’s other complementary products that include moisture mitigation materials, surface preparation and self-leveling underlayment mortars, as well as tile setting materials. The DriTac product range, which includes polyurethane, modified silicone and water-based technologies, will further enhance Sika’s system solutions for floor covering applications and give customers access to a large, full-range portfolio.
“With this acquisition, Sika establishes a leading position in floor covering adhesives, especially for wood floors, in the USA. Expansion in Interior Finishing is a key growth initiative for Sika and we are well positioned to bring all our technologies, including the newly acquired range, to our customers in this large and attractive market. We welcome the new employees to the Sika family and look forward to further developing the business together,” said Christoph Ganz, Regional Manager Americas.
