Sika moves Parex Monorex GM production to the UK

UK leader in construction chemicals Sika, has moved production of its most popular colours in the Parex Monorex GM render range from France to the UK to match the expectation and growth in demand from its customers and drive down lead times.

Sika Ltd has confronted supply chain challenges for some key Sika Parex product ranges and has made the step to produce the three most popular colours of Monorex GM – G00, G10 and G20 – in the UK. This will see the production of Monorex GM with the same excellent performance and results as users expect. Monorex GM is a one-coat, through coloured weather resistant decorative render for masonry and concrete substrates.

“The construction sector has faced many challenges in the last two years as a result of Covid-19 and Brexit. Sika continually look to identify opportunities to improve customer service and satisfaction and our decision to produce our key product, Monorex, in the UK is a great example of that – enabling us to reduce lead times and supply chain risks for our customers.”
