Supporting Customers on a Truly Global Scale
As a true partner to the global automotive community, we’re focused on supporting its operations wherever and whenever it’s needed. Our footprint covers most of the key automotive engineering and manufacturing centers, allowing us to deliver greater cost savings and shorter lead times for many of our products and technologies.
Currently, we support customers in Europe, Asia, North America and South America with production facilities, production workshops and toll manufacturing co-operations.
The fact that many of our largest customers are based in Europe is reflected in our regional manufacturing operations. We maintain state-of-the-art production sites in Hamburg, Romanshorn, Cerano, Zurich and Düdingen. We also have manufacturing co-operations in several countries for our injection molded products.
Our U.S. manufacturing operations are centrally located, allowing us to reliably support all of North America’s automotive manufacturing hubs. Products for our parts business are manufactured at our largest U.S. site in Grandview, MO, while bulk products are produced in Marion, OH and in Lyndhurst, NY, or imported from Europe.
In South America, we have a production site in Sao Paulo, producing a broad range of products and technologies.
Our Asia automotive operations are located in China, Japan and Korea. Sika Automotive provides localized manufacturing in Shin-Nanyo, Japan, as well as certified toll manufacturing partnerships for our customers in China.
ADAPTING TO THE EVOLVING DEMANDS OF OUR CUSTOMERS
With our current footprint, we’re well-positioned to support customers all over the world. The automotive industry is changing fast, however, and the demand for more localized supply options is growing. As we move forward, we continue to re-evaluate and evolve our footprint with the goal of localizing production of more of our technologies to better support our customers.
