Milestones of construction technology
Join us on an impressive journey through the eventful and interesting history of PERI. Advanced formwork and scaffolding products as well as fascinating buildings characterize the business development of the company.
Start the journey through time
1984 Heading into a new era
PERI USA is the first subsidiary outside the european continent.
GT 24 wooden lattice girder
As a further development of the T-70 V with its 36 cm height, the new GT 24 wooden lattice girder provides more flexibility on the construction site through 12 cm less overall height but with the same dimensional stability.
1985 Dam in Turkey
Atatürk Dam, Turkey
The mobile SKS single-sided climbing formwork begins its international success story with the construction of the third largest dam in the world.
1985 TRIO panel formwork
Europe´s leading panel formwork is launched
The universal wall formwork system is characterized by having few different individual components resulting in faster forming operations. The patent for the TRIO panel formwork is used for 20 years; immediately after this, imitations start to appear on the market.
A new milestone in self-climbing technology
PERI introduces the ACS self-climbing system. Climbing takes place with the hydraulic climbing mechanism without the use of a crane. Well-designed working platforms protect site personnel during all weathers.
1991 CAD software
73 modern CAD work stations replace the drawing boards in Weissenhorn.
1992 MULTIPROP and SKYDECK
At the 1992 bauma, PERI presents the very first system equipment made of aluminum - SKYDECK slab formwork and MULTIPROP post shores. Low weight, high load-bearing capacity, integrated measuring tape and the self-cleaning thread explain the rapid success of MULTIPROP around the world.
1994 Öresund Connection, Denmark-Sweden
Formwork machine for the world´s largest monolithic tunnel
A purpose-built field factory produces the tunnel segments in a dry dock. The individual tunnel elements are towed out to the open sea using pontoons and then sunk to their designated positions on the seabed.
PERI has 13 branch offices in Germany and 22 subsidiaries around the world.
The product portfolio includes more than 2,000 items.
PERI UP scaffold system
With the development of the PERI UP scaffold system, PERI begins its activities in the scaffolding market. The PERI UP T 72 facade scaffolding with T-frame and guardrail in advance is safe and cost-effective.
Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
For construction of the 452 m high building, the use of the ACS self-climbing system ensures smooth and problem-free construction progress.
1998 New administration building
With the Quadragon, an ultra-modern office building for the PERI staff in Weißenhorn is realized.
2000 PERI with a new logo
The horizontal arrow symbolizes the increasing market presence and the growing number of satisfied customers. The vertical arrow stands for the improvement in quality of all PERI services.
20,000 linear metres of girders are produced per day.
2003 Longest cable-stayed bridge in the world
Viaduc de Millau, France
The 2.5 km long cable-stayed bridge is constructed using special steel formwork, which rose steadily upwards cycle-by-cycle with the help of the ACS self-climbing system.
2004 From a sculpture to a building
Turning Torso, Sweden
Due to its torsion-like architecture, the 190 m high office and residential complex requires a particularly efficient formwork concept with ACS climbing units.
2005 Challenge for the formwork technology
Mercedes Benz Museum, Stuttgart, Germany
The pilot project for serial manufactured 3D formwork units sets new standards in formwork technology.
Investment in the future
PERI expands the production area by 80% and doubles the size of the logistics and delivery facilities. Altogether, PERI invests approx. 80 million euros for securing the Weissenhorn plant.
2007 VARIOKIT engineering construction kit
Flexibility and functionality for a wide range of supporting structures
For load combinations in tunnel, bridge and building construction, PERI provides for the first time a construction kit consisting of standardized, rentable system components and connecting means.
Management Board 2007 - Company's founder Artur Schwörer (deceased 2009) with his sons Alexander and Christian.
The biomass power plant at the central production site in Weissenhorn is a symbol of combined economic and ecological sustainability at PERI.
