“Sika has been around for 114 years now this year, with presence in 103 countries across the globe.

This new Taguig plant gives us great hope that the future is bright for the Philippine construction and infrastructure”, said Philippe Jost.

“We thank Sika for this confidence in helping us to bring back the Philippines to the rail map of Asia and all over the world.
