Sika is integrating the SikaAxon business unit by renaming it Sika Advanced Resins.
The move, said Sika 5 Dec, is aimed at reflecting the synergies provided by the Sika group, which is a leading player in speciality chemicals for the construction and industrial sectors.
"This new identity strengthens Sika Advanced Resins' positioning in relation to its competitors, as it gives visibility to the activities of the entire Group,” explained Morten Muschak, Head of Sika Advanced Resins.
The business unit, according to Muschak, is “the number one” tooling company in Europe and is aiming to become a leader in the formulation of high-performance epoxy and polyurethane resins for tooling, composites and dielectrics.
Sika AG acquired French resin maker Axon Technologies in March 2015, and formed SikaAxon business unit.
