    Internationally Acclaimed Formwork and Scaffolding Company PERI Invests in Southern Africa

    PERI Group, one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of formwork and scaffolding systems worldwide, has successfully negotiated the

    takeover of Wiehahn Formwork and Scaffolding. PERI is a global, family owned and operated business based in Germany and one of the leading

    brands in formwork worldwide. The extensive PERI services are provided by 49 subsidiary companies in more than 60 countries.

    PERI aims to provide the highest quality products and the best solutions to meet

    clients’ needs while continually striving to be innovative. With a wide range of

    formwork and scaffolding systems as well as extensive supplementary services,

    PERI helps its customers to carry out their tasks effectively and safely, thereby

    increasing the cost-effectiveness.

    Wiehahn has been one of the market leaders in the South African formwork and

    scaffolding industry for over 40 years and the sole PERI distributor for more than

    10 years. Consequently, PERI is already an established brand in the South

    African market.

    PERI acknowledges the accomplishments of Wiehahn Formwork and Scaffolding

    and look forward to building on this success. They are looking at further

    investment in the market, which will potentially create new jobs. PERI is

    committed to the continuation of Wiehahn’s conventional and established product

    range and specialised formwork manufacturing capabilities, in order to meet the

    specific market demands and the local construction methods. The know-how of

    PERI specialists and their experience gained from projects worldwide will give

    additional impetus for further development of solutions, systems and products for

    the local market. PERI Group embraces the progress that Wiehahn has made in

    terms of BBBEE and is committed to further developments in this regard.

    With the acquisition of Wiehahn Formwork and Scaffolding, PERI is showing a

    great deal of confidence in South Africa and Africa, given the depressed nature of

    global markets. They do not only view this acquisition as an opportunity to invest

    in South Africa, but also to expand its presence and business activities in

    additional African regions.
