Interior fitout solutions specialist SAS International has announced the acquisition of Sydney-based ceiling distributor, Mikor.

Already a market leader in Australia with its range of metal ceiling systems, SAS International expects the acquisition to further strengthen its position. This business move will also help SAS International increase its resources and service provision for the entire Australian market.

With its technical design capabilities and manufacturing excellence, SAS International expects to meet the increasing demand in the commercial property market for high quality internal finishes.

Mauro Corazzi, National Sales Manager for SAS International (Australia) is confident the expansion will enable the company to service the market in Australia and continue to meet the growing demand for their metal ceiling solutions. The combined expertise of SAS International and Mikor will allow the company to offer an even greater range of metal ceiling solutions and architectural metalwork for both the project specification and distribution markets.

Recently SAS International’s strong working relationship with Mikor helped secure the supply of 200,000m² of SAS metal ceilings to the largest commercial office development in Australia, Barangaroo, Sydney by Lend Lease. SAS International ceiling systems are already installed in the award-winning Commonwealth Bank Place and Darling Quarter development as well as 1 Bligh Street, Sydney.

SAS International (Australia) will be based in Sydney with an office and sales operation at Level 2, 93 Bathurst Street, and additional warehousing facilities at a separate location. SAS International currently has a head office and three manufacturing facilities in the UK, a Middle East office and warehouse facilities in Dubai.
