Butterfield Color® is excited to join the Sika team!
SIKA ACQUIRES BUTTERFIELD COLOR, INC. IN THE UNITED STATES, FURTHER STRENGTHENING ITS PORTFOLIO OF ENGINEERED SYSTEMS FOR DECORATIVE CONCRETE FLOORS IN NORTH AMERICA
Sika has acquired Butterfield Color, Inc. a US-based market leader in the production of decorative concrete floor products and systems. The acquisition will accelerate Sika’s growth by bringing the most comprehensive range of solutions for concrete contractors, in this fast-growing segment of the North American construction market.
Based near Chicago in Aurora, Illinois, Butterfield Color® is a well-established, family-owned US company with a strong, well-trusted brand and reputation with concrete contractors nationwide. Butterfield’s impressive line of integral colors, decorative stains and sealers, plus innovative tools for stamping and texturing has been growing for years now, and with a strong momentum. Last year Sika acquired L.M. Scofield, the market leader in architectural specifications and a leading supplier to the Ready Mix Concrete segment for colored and decorative concrete. Acquiring Butterfield Color® now adds an unmatched contractor presence and, combined with Scofield, establishes Sika as the clear market leader in this fast-growing market.
Christoph Ganz, Regional Manager North America: “The acquisition of Butterfield Color® fits perfectly with our growth strategy in North America, enabling Sika to reach new contractor customers and better penetrate key projects. We see great synergies coming from the combined technologies of Sika, Scofield, and now Butterfield Color®. We are proud to welcome Butterfield’s employees into the Sika team and we are excited about growing our business together.”
