Sika acquisition offers more choice
Sika UK’s refurbishment division now offers more choice for its customers following its successful acquisition of Parex Technical and Street Scape Mortars at the end of 2019.
Its expert concrete repair team has been bolstered by 11 members from Parex, each of whom is a specialist in either Technical or Street Scape Mortars. The staff increase will optimise its service for engineers, facility managers and contractors.
Following the changes, Ronnie Turner has been promoted to Sika Refurbishment National Infrastructure Sales Manager. The team, comprising Sika and Parex personnel, will provide concrete repair and structural strengthening solutions including rail, power, water and highways projects.
Another change of role sees Nic Collins promoted to National Sales Manager for the Refurbishment Team. In addition Arthur McNiven, who joins Sika from Parex, will lead the team looking after Street Scape Mortars as National Sales Manager.
Sika’s product offering has also expanded. Its concrete repair and refurbishment now
includes Parex’s innovative range of technical mortars, resin anchors, adhesives and
advanced grouts. These high-calibre solutions are suitable for a wide range of applications and requirements in highway maintenance, concrete repair and major infrastructure projects.
All three areas of Sika’s concrete repair and structural strengthening offer to customers –
Infrastructure, Refurbishment and Street Scape Mortar – will be led by Business Unit Manager for Target Market Refurbishment, Charles Pierce who comments:
“This is an incredibly exciting development for Sika and its customers. It will ensure we inherit an even more competitive position in the concrete repair and refurbishment sector.”
