Sika Australia was founded in 1976 as a member of the Sika Group of companies. Initially, Sika Australia was mainly a trading company sourcing finished products from sister companies overseas and marketing them throughout Australia.Â In the early days, a few products were already manufactured in Australia, such as Rugasol, as well as some concrete and mortar additives.
As a specialty chemical supplier and manufacturer for the building and construction industry, Sika Australia prides itself on being technically driven and project motivated. The business is typically balanced between contractors, architects, engineers and other specifiers and distribution marketing through retail hardware.
Sika Australia has cultivated a stand-out team of more than a hundred staff nationally including onsite product engineers, well trained customer service, other technical services team, as well as well-equipped and knowledgable sales force. The company has access to overall a thousand products available throughout Australia in all major capital cities.
