Davco tiler competition in Australia

On September 6 and 7, Sika and Davco hosted the final of the Parex Tiler Contest in Australia. Following seven regional competitions, the finalists were invited to compete in Sydney. The winner was sent to China where the International Final took place in November. The full product range of Sika and Davco products helped to increase the competitors’ efficiency. It was a great opportunity for the joint teams to reinforce strong partnerships with the tilers.
