Global formwork manufacturer Doka has completed its 100% acquisition of scaffolding specialist AT-PAC.
Both companies initially partnered in 2020 to provide comprehensive global site solutions. The acquisition positions Doka as a single source for formwork and scaffolding for the global construction industry and strengthens the company’s new global business segment, ‘Industrial Scaffolding’. For AT-PAC, this means full access to the global market.
Robert Hauser, CEO of Doka, said, “I am very enthusiastic about the opportunities that will be offered to existing and future customers, providing them with a wealth of knowledge, integrated products and turnkey solutions for formwork, shoring and scaffolding from a single source. This will allow us to continue to expand together and further strengthen our market position.”
Josh Dundon, previously COO, has been named CEO of AT-PAC. "It is an exciting milestone for AT-PAC to become 100% part of Doka and thus the Umdasch Group family,” said Mr Dundon.
“It further strengthens and demonstrates the success of our partnership since its inception three years ago. The combination of Doka’s industry-leading formwork solutions and extensive global sales network with AT-PAC’s high quality products, services and talent will create incredible value for our customers and opportunities for our employees worldwide.”
The potential for cooperation between Doka and AT-PAC was demonstrated at bauma 2022 in Munich, Germany. The two companies participated in the event with a dual-branded stand, showcasing a 30-m-high Ringlock scaffolding landmark tower.
“The opportunities presented by combining the world’s leading formwork company with the global scaffolding specialist are enormous,” said Doka.
