SIKA ACQUIRES RMAX OPERATING, LLC IN THE UNITED STATES AND FURTHER STRENGTHENS ITS NORTH AMERICAN MARKET POSITION
14/12/2016 // Sika Acquires Rmax
With headquarters in Dallas, Texas, Rmax has been a market leader in polyisocyanurate insulation technology for over 37 years. At its three strategic production locations (Dallas, Texas; Greer, South Carolina; and Fernley, Nevada) Rmax produces insulation products and accessories that are highly regarded and widely specified for both commerical and residential wall and roof applications throughout the US. In particular, its innovations in continuous insulation for better Building Envelopes are at the forefront of the industry, and have many synergies with Sika technologies for walls and facades. Currently Sika USA purchases insulation products from third party suppliers to include in its solutions for Roofing and Building Envelopes. With this acquisition it will now be possible to benefit from in-house production.
Christoph Ganz, Regional Manager North America: “The acquisition of Rmax fits perfectly with Sika’s growth strategy in North America, further strengthening our already fast-growing Building Systems in Roofing, Sealants and Waterproofing. Rmax brings us a proven industry leader, with strong innovations for Building Envelope applications, along with manufacturing expertise for wall and roofing insulation. We proudly welcome the Rmax employees to the Sika team and are excited about growing our business together”.
