Sika has agreed to acquire the assets of Duro-Moza, a Mozambique based company active in production and sales of specialized mortars and tile adhesives. The transaction will accelerate Sika Mozambique’s development and market penetration. Duro-Moza generated sales of CHF 2 million in 2014.

Paul Schuler, Head of region EMEA: “This acquisition is the first acquisition in Africa and will provide us with a solid platform from which to expand further in the region. We welcome the new employees on board and look forward to developing the business together.”
