Construction firm Sika Philippines is banking on digitalization and retail distribution as core focus on its business expansion this year. 

The company recently launched its newest retail product line as part of its targeted home construction solutions which are easy to use and apply.

 “Sika’s theme this year is customer centricity, pivoting ways on how to adapt and provide solutions in the new normal mostly through digitalization,”  said Christophe Lejeune, Sika General manager.

Sika is presently strengthening its retail distribution as it launched the products during the first ever virtual retail product and Sika Retail Management Tool Launch.

“We launched Sika Retail Management Tool to make managing retail network easier through an online app accessible to distributors, to monitor activities of their hardware store network related to Sika business,” according to Christophe Lejeune.
