Madison Heights, Michigan -- Sika Corp.'s Industry Products Division has established a business unit to serve the North American facades, fenestration and insulating glass marketplace.
The move follows adhesive and sealant supplier Sika's acquisition of May National, a manufacturer of silicone and polyurethane products, in Oct 2010.
Scott Henry, senior vice president of Sika Industry Products, will lead the FFI business unit, supported by vice president - sales and marketing, Doug Walker, who has more than 33 years of specialised industry experience, according to the 7 Feb press release.
"The establishment of the FFI business unit provides solid ground for continued growth in this arena," Walker said in the statement. "It also indicates strong commitment by Sika to establish North American supply and expertise to augment the Sika Engineered Silicones business in Europe." LMH
