Implenia strengthens activities in falsework construction


Implenia strengthens activities in falsework construction - Expansion of
services along the civil engineering value chain | Acquisition of Robert Aebi
AG's falsework unit enhances Implenia's range of services

Dietlikon, 10 December 2012 - Implenia is strengthening its existing
activities in falsework construction. By doing so the company is expanding its
offering along the civil engineering value chain, meaning that it will be able
to better offer its customers solutions from a single source. In addition,
Implenia is going to offer falsework construction in its European target
markets. Falseworks are auxiliary structures that are needed for tasks such as
shuttering and concreting when building concrete bridges. The technique brings
benefits in terms of efficiency and sustainability. For example, special
falsework structures make it possible to build bridges over heavily used
motorways without stopping the traffic.

To support this strategic focus, Implenia is acquiring the falsework unit of
Robert Aebi AG, Switzerland's leading supplier of construction machinery, and
in so doing is securing a targeted enhancement of its expertise and plant.
Robert Aebi is selling the unit because it wants to focus on its core
business. The falsework unit, with its five employees, who are being taken on
by Implenia, has many years of experience and has been involved with a wide
variety of challenging projects.

This short animation provides more information on falsework techniques
(available only in German and French).
