One of the world's largest manufacturers and suppliers of formwork and scaffolding expands regional coverage from Hong Kong

PERI from Germany, inventor of the DUO system formwork, announced today (3 May 2023) that it has expanded operation to cover the Greater China Region, as part of the comprehensive regional strategy to tap new demand amid increasing infrastructure projects in the region.

To cope with continuous expansion, PERI HK, which is the headquarters of PERI Greater China, now has a workforce of over 80 employees, compared to only five in 2015 when it first set up in the city. In addition to the Hong Kong stockyard in Yuen Long, the company also has added three new stockyards across Asia boosting storage capacity to meet expected surge in regional demand.

Formwork refers to a temporary mould into which concrete is poured and formed so that it can set to the required shape. PERI announced its DUO system formwork in 2016, a lightweight system using technopolymer materials compared to traditional steel or timber formwork, which is also UV resistant and highly durable against moisture. In Hong Kong, it is widely used in construction of infrastructures. Over the past eight years, PERI HK has taken part in numerous projects such as Central Kowloon Route, Three-runway System, Tsueng Kwan O - Lam Tin Tunnel, etc, according to the Managing Director, Mr Rory O'Gara.

Mr O'Gara said, “Hong Kong is well known for its advanced and well-constructed infrastructures. Located at the gateway to Mainland China, it is also a convenient stepping stone for PERI to expand our business coverage in Greater China. Recently we have launched two new products that were specifically developed for the region while also expanding our Hong Kong office and added stockyard capacity to cope with the huge demand for our products and services.”

He added, “The Hong Kong Government invested heavily in infrastructure and the city is seeing tremendous development ahead. As we celebrate our 8th year in Hong Kong, we look back with pride about the rapid growth of our team and operations and the success we have helped our customers achieve, and looking forward there is no less excitement as we have the opportunity to work on new landmark projects and provide innovative formwork solutions, in order to contribute to a better Hong Kong."

Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion Dr Jimmy Chiang said, "We are happy to see the expansion of PERI in Hong Kong. It is a vivid demonstration of how foreign companies make good use of Hong Kong’s international advantage to grow its business not only in Hong Kong market but also reach out to the Mainland and the rest of the region from their Hong Kong base."
