ika’s new £2.5million research and development center in Preston, UK, was opened on 26 November, 2014 by HRH Duke of Kent in an official ceremony to

mark the occasion. Following the acquisition of Liquid Plastics and Incorez in 2009, Sika has continued to invest in this area of its business to support the development of technologically advanced liquid roofing membranes and new developments in its product technologies - such as the low solvent iCure range. From its Preston site in the North West of England, Sika exports these products all over the world and is leading the field in liquid roof waterproofing. “Our aim is to develop a Center of Excellence in liquid roofing at our new R&D Center in the UK,” comments Jan Jenisch, Sika CEO. “We recognize the expertise we have in this area and we are excited to develop and nurture that talent to the benefit of our Sika subsidiaries and customers across the globe.”

Construction work on the new research and development center began one year ago on the site of an existing 100-year old warehouse. The new center is twice as large as the previous structure, covering more than a thousand square meters. The research center’s activities will focus on 30 Sika products, including the roof waterproofing and internal floor coatings. During the official opening, Sika was privileged to be joined by HRH Duke of Kent and the Mayor and Mayoress of Preston. His Royal Highness was given a guided tour of the facility where he could see the Sika chemists in action and learn more about the pioneering work that takes place in Preston.
