DYWIDAG-Systems International has announced its acquisition of Polish-based permanent formwork and hydro-insulation specialist, PARTEC System.

PARTEC System was founded 20 years ago by Krzysztof Kotarba as a specialist manufacturer and distributor of permanent formwork and hydro-insulation systems to the construction sector. Located in Gajków, close to Wroclaw, PARTEC operates throughout Europe with a primary focus on its home territory and Scandinavia.

This acquisition is a key step in DYWIDAG’s expansion to meet the needs of the European market. By combining the speed and reliability of PARTEC with DYWIDAG’s distribution channels, it is anticipated that there will be significant growth and product development within the group.

Mr. Kotarba said, “It is clear that the values and vision of DYWIDAG reflect those of myself and the PARTEC organisation. These shared principles and the ambition of DYWIDAG provides PARTEC with an exciting opportunity to further grow and become an integral part of the future success of the business.”

Ian Jarvis, President of Concrete Accessories DYWIDAG, said, “We are delighted to welcome the PARTEC team into DYWIDAG. It’s an important milestone for our Concrete Accessories division as we look to increase our manufacturing footprint and gain a strong presence in the Polish market. This provides us with a greater opportunity to explore emerging markets in Eastern Europe.”

Matti Kuivalainen, CEO DYWIDAG, said, “Strategically, we see many opportunities in Europe. I am delighted to have PARTEC become part of the DYWIDAG family. The acquisition of PARTEC strengthens the division and builds our position in the specialist construction materials sector.”
