Sika says its acquistion of UK-based Everbuild Building Products would further strengthen its position in the construction chemical market and the professional distribution and D-I-Y channels.

Founded in 1994, Everbuild, based in Leeds, England, operates a manufacturing facility to produce a full range of construction chemical products, along with laboratories and a logistic hub, according to Sika.

The company has annual sales revenue of CHF 90 million ($95 million USD) and a workforce of 270 employees. Everbuild serves customers in more than 70 countries, according to its website.

Under the deal, Everbuild will operate as a subsidiary of Sika UK and will be led by the existing management team.

Sika said the acquisition would further strengthen its position in the construction chemical market and in the professional distribution and do-it-yourself channels.
