Kaspar Winkler invented the first Sika product in 1910. He had to wait several years for the breakthrough of his company, when Sika-1 was used to waterproof the Gotthard tunnel.
The future success of Sika is not only dependent on pursuing the right strategy, but is just as much based on the trust and dedication of all employees. The Sika journey to global leadership is founded on the company's entrepreneurial philosophy and the Sika Spirit.
