Sika has agreed to acquire a leading manufacturer of tile setting materials operating under the umbrella brand Chema in Peru. The acquisition strengthens Sika’s position in the fast-growing mortar market and provides major cross-selling opportunities through increased presence in the distribution channel. In addition, it significantly extends Sika’s manufacturing footprint. In 2022, the business to be acquired generated sales of CHF 50 million.
SMT Scharf AG (WKN: A3DRAE; ISIN: DE000A3DRAE2) hereby gives notice that Mr. Hans Joachim Theiß has informed the Supervisory Board that he will not be extending his contract, which ends on December 31, 2023,
Backstops in machines and systems prevent uncontrolled and dangerous reverse rotation of drive shafts against the direction of operation. Low-speed backstops in the FRHN series from RINGSPANN are specially designed for use in inclined conveyor belt systems, bucket elevators or pumps.

From smoke to rain and mud: Having recently returned from a geophysical survey close to the wildfires in Alberta, our geophysics crews were straight back out on the next job. For the last weeks they’ve been out on the Athabasca River collecting marine sub bottom profiling data to map sediments and bedrock to help in an engineering river crossing project.
In this case crews deployed a seismic source that weighed over 250 pounds. The seismic source was kept buoyant as it was pulled behind the boat by 3 small pontoons.
Bodies of water can present a particularly challenging environment to acquire data for site characterization. As well as seismic methods, we provide a range of water-borne geophysical surveys that help to provide information where other forms of data acquisition are limited.
The crews will be out again later this month collecting resistivity data on the river.
