The PERI DUO Universal Formwork system continues to attract a very positive response: two more bodies – one in Angola, another in India – have awarded the new technopolymer-based formwork with corresponding innovation prizes.
PERI presented the PERI DUO Universal Formwork to the international public for the first time at bauma 2016 in Munich. Already at its premiere, the response of industry professionals was incredibly positive. Since then, numerous PERI country subsidiaries have introduced the lightweight formwork for the walls, columns, foundations and slabs into their respective markets. In the process, the formwork system has also been awarded various prizes – most recently in South-West Africa and India.
PERI has been active in Angola for 10 years now and has already supported a range of major civil engineering projects such as bridges or dams. With the very easy to handle DUO Universal Formwork, the local PERI sales engineers and management team see further growth potential. Therefore, the opportunity was taken to present the innovation during the “Konstroi Angola” construction fair. A jury of representatives from the fair organization, trade press and construction associations evaluated a range of new products and developments showcased at the fair and awarded the “Best Innovation Product Award” to PERI's universal formwork.
The bauma CONEXPO INDIA 2016 is one of the most important trade fairs in India for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines and construction vehicles. In December 2016, PERI exhibited for the fourth time in a row at the centre of who-is-who in the construction sector. In addition to the new ALPHAKIT engineering construction kit for medium-sized bridge construction, PERI also presented the DUO Universal Formwork. Visitors to the trade fair showed great interest in the new lightweight development at the PERI stand with numerous questions and discussions. Furthermore, the PERI DUO also convinced a jury which awarded the product with the “Construction Opportunity Excellence Award” as part of the “Conference on Maximizing CE Sector Opportunities”.
