LONDON - Sika has acquired Everbuild Building Products Ltd, UK’s largest independent manufacturer of sealants, adhesives and construction chemicals. Located in Leeds, Everbuild has annual sales revenue of over CHF 90 million and a workforce of 270 employees.

Founded in 1994, Everbuild is a well-known brand in the UK building market and the leader in professional distribution channels. The company runs a manufacturing facility for a full range of construction chemical products with laboratories and a logistics hub.

Everbuild will operate as a subsidiary of Sika UK and will be led by the existing management team. Its founder, David Seymour, will stay with the company to drive the continued success of the business and ensure a smooth transition.

The acquisition will strengthen Sika’s position in the construction chemical market and in the professional distribution and do-it-yourself channels.
