The company, based in Bobenheim-Roxheim, specialises in intelligent and complete services for formwork construction.

According to Peri, the deal “perfectly matches” with its current product offering and will allow it to invest in both the infrastructure and high-rise segments, which it describes as “urgently needed capacities.”

Implenia says the acquisition will allow it to “focus on the defined core portfolio” and to advance its asset-light strategy.

Confirmation of the deal, which closed on 1 January, will see all 46 employees of Implenia Schalungsbau remain, while the business will trade under the name of Peri Schalungsbau. No changes to the running of the business is expected.

Stefan Schurwonn, head of commercial operations at Peri Germany, said, “With this purchase, we are expanding our competences and capacities in special formwork construction and in the areas of Infrastructure and High Rise.

“This is an important step for Peri Germany to further strengthen our market position and achieve our ambitious growth targets for the coming years.”
