Global growth for Ardex
In order to strengthen its strategic position in Oceania, Ardex, the manufacturer of construction chemicals, has acquired a majority share in Cemix in New Zealand, a supplier of dry mortar and flooring materials.
Cemix is the Ardex Group’s second company in New Zealand. Ardex New Zealand, which is based in Christchurch, has been supplying sealants in the region for several years. In future, the two companies will retain their individual brand and service profiles. However, both will benefit from synergies in areas such as production, sales and purchasing.
Ardex currently employs 2010 people worldwide and has production facilities and sales companies in Australia, Austria, the Benelux countries, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Dubai, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, the USA and Vietnam.
