Specialty chemicals firm Sika AG announced the opening of a new manufacturing plant Wednesday in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. The new location doubles the firm’s capacity for concrete admixtures and mortar in the country.

The new, highly automated facility – built in Bolivia’s biggest industrial park – replaces an existing plant and includes space for additional expansions. Sika also boosted its warehousing capacity and included a training center for customers at the site.

“The clear strategic focus of our business activities on major cities and agglomerations in the Americas region is proving to be highly successful,” Christoph Ganz, regional manager, Americas for Sika, said in a company release. “We now have over 20 national subsidiaries and 89 production plants in the Americas. We continue to invest in the expansion of our presence in fast-growing markets. This recent investment in Bolivia enables us to continue to grow our output volumes in the dynamic Bolivian construction market.”

Investments in infrastructure, energy, and industrial projects in Bolivia in the coming years are expected to fuel demand for Sika’s products.
