Sika will acquire an Austrian waterproofing system manufacturer, Sika said in a press release January 11.
The acquisition of Bitbau Dörr, headquartered in Innsbruck, Austria, is subject to approval by the Austrian competition authority, according to Sika. Bitbau Dörr produces complete waterproofing systems for roofs, buildings and civil engineering applications. The 150-year-old has three distribution sites in Vienna, Graz and Linz, in addition to the Innsbruck headquarters.
“Thanks to our acquisition of the leading Austrian manufacturer of bitumen-based construction products and complete waterproofing solutions, Sika’s customers will benefit from a broader choice of products,” said Sika regional manager Paul Schuler.
