Sika - Building Trust
my-summer-sika-int-jerhard-600-400

Summer is over but lets look back at how our employees shared their “Summer with Sika”

Over the summer of 2016, Matt & Eric, our two Sika ambassadors traveled across the USA to visit project sites, factories, distributors and stores where Sika products are used and sold.    This amazing journey led to countless connections with our customers that were shared and documented on this site.   While Matt & Eric toured the country, Sika USA held an internal contest for our employees to share how they spent their “Summer with Sika”.  Here is a compilation of some of the submissions:

“I couldn’t think of a better way to illustrate the Sika motto of “Building Trust”, than to capture the tremendous buildings of the lower Manhattan skyline in the background. Photo from my patio.” – Arron


my-summer-sika-int-kevin“Waterproofing the nation’s capital one bridge at a time.” – Kevin


my-summer-sika-int-tina“When I went to high school here the building was falling apart, I could see stains from roof leaks everywhere…. A few years ago, a brand new high school was built and it looks absolutely beautiful and I must say the roof is the best part 🙂 I run by this school everyday feeling proud that I work for a company that is protecting current students and future students for a long time to come with a #SarnafilRoof #SikaEveryDay” – Tina


my-summer-sika-int-jerhard“My summer with Sika has been an eventful and enriching educational experience helping me advance in my studies at college. Without Sika, I would not have been able to visit elaborate sites, meet hardworking individuals or gain the knowledge required for me to continue working towards my desired career.” – Jerhard


“Always try to look further than what you have in front of you” – Claire


my-summer-sika-int-darryl“Unexpected detour to Yosemite. Standing in front of El Capitan. Words can’t express how amazing this place is!  It is a must see and a check off the bucket list.” – Darryl


my-summer-sika-will

“While my stroke still is pretty ugly, I got a pretty shot of a Sika golf ball while out playing golf with some coworkers.” – Will

“Enjoying one of the many lakes in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains” -Kara

  • How strong is Sika Post Fix?  This chain has been embedded in one bag of Post Fix to secure a bike rack.  This innovative product was the prefect replacement for a bag of concrete - no water or messy mixing needed and it sets much faster. #sikaeveryday #concrete #sucesswithsika
  • Sika admixtures are playing a key role in repairing the Oroville Dam Spillway back to its original design capacity. In February 2017, engineers noticed concrete erosion on the flood control spillway at the Oroville Dam. Rising water levels beyond the dam’s height required use of the emergency spillway for the first time in the dam’s history.  What concrete wasn’t washed away on the lower part of the main part of the spillway is being removed to allow for construction of a replacement.  #Concrete #OrovilleDam #Oroville #SuccesswithSika #SikaEveryDay #Construction
