Global formwork specialist Doka has completed its 100% acquisition of the US-based scaffolding manufacturer and rental business AT-PAC.

Both companies initially partnered in 2020 to provide comprehensive global construction site solutions. Doka says that 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 called Industrial Scaffolding.

"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,” said Robert Hauser, chief executive of Doka.

For AT-PAC, headquartered in Roswell, in the US state of Georgia, the acquisition means full access to Doka’s global market. Josh Dundon, previously chief operating officer of AT-PAC, is now chief executive of the business which has 250 employees worldwide, 17 branches and 25 years of experience. "It further strengthens and demonstrates the success of our partnership since its inception three years ago,” he said.

Doka, based in Amstetten, Austria, has more than 160 sales and logistics facilities in over 60 countries, employing 7,300 people worldwide. The company is part of the Umdasch Group. Major global deals for Doka include Kuwait's Nawaseeb Road project.

The company was also recently appointed formwork supplier for Fehmarnbelt Tunnel project Denmark and Germany and which will be the world's largest immersed tunnel for road and rail traffic.  The link will be an 18km immersed tunnel between Rødbyhavn on Lolland island  in Denmark and Puttgarden on Fehmarn island in Germany. It will essential be another link connecting Scandinavia with the rest of Europe.
