Join us on an impressive journey through the eventful and interesting history of PERI. Advanced formwork and scaffolding products as well as fascinating buildings characterize the business development of the company.
Artur Schwörer together with his wife, Christl, founded the PERI company.The goal of the enterprise is the rationalization of concrete construction. Construction work should be simpler, faster and safer.
The formwork surrounds the concrete – the scaffolding surrounds the building.
The first girder is produced, the PERI T70 is born. The first order comprises 80 girders with lengths of 3.05 m. The girders are impregnated by hand using a sponge over a plastic tub and then loaded directly onto the waiting truck. The annual output is approx. 50,000 linear metres.
The production hall is built on the 6,000 m² company premises in Weissenhorn.
The world´s biggest twin vertical ship lift connects the Mittelland Canal and the River Elbe bridging a height difference of 38 m.
The first branches are opened in Hamburg and Stuttgart.
The first subsidiaries are founded in Switzerland and France.
The first subsidiary outside the european continent.
As a further development of the T-70 V with its 36 cm height, the new GT 24 wooden lattice girder provides more flexibility on the construction site through 12 cm less overall height but with the same dimensional stability.
The mobile SKS single-sided climbing formwork begins its international success story with the construction of the third largest dam in the world.
The universal wall formwork system is characterized by having few different individual components resulting in faster forming operations. A few years later TRIO became the market-leading system.
PERI introduces the ACS self-climbing system. Climbing takes place with the hydraulic climbing mechanism without the use of a crane. Well-designed working platforms protect site personnel during all weathers.
73 modern CAD work stations replace the drawing boards in Weissenhorn.
At the 1992 bauma, PERI presents innovations made of aluminum - SKYDECK slab formwork and MULTIPROP post shores. Low weight, high load-bearing capacity, integrated measuring tape and the self-cleaning thread explain the rapid success of MULTIPROP around the world.
A purpose-built field factory produces the tunnel segments in a dry dock. The individual tunnel elements are towed out to the open sea using pontoons and then sunk to their designated positions on the seabed.
PERI has 13 branch offices in Germany and 22 subsidiaries around the world. The product portfolio includes more than 2000 products.
With the development of the PERI UP scaffold system, PERI begins its activities in the scaffolding market. The PERI UP T 72 facade scaffolding with T-frame and guardrail in advance is safe and cost-effective.
During construction of the at that time highes buidling of the world with 452 m, the use of the ACS self-climbing system ensures smooth and problem-free construction progress.
With the Quadragon, an ultra-modern office building for the PERI staff in Weißenhorn is realized.
The horizontal arrow symbolizes the increasing market presence and the growing number of satisfied customers. The vertical arrow stands for the improvement in quality of all PERI services.
20,000 linear metres of girders are produced per day.
The 2.5 km long cable-stayed bridge is constructed using special steel formwork, which rose steadily upwards cycle-by-cycle with the help of the ACS self-climbing system.
Due to its torsion-like architecture, the 190 m high office and residential complex requires a particularly efficient formwork concept with ACS climbing units.
The pilot project for serial manufactured 3D formwork units sets new standards in formwork technology.
PERI expands the production area by 80% and doubles the size of the logistics and delivery facilities. Altogether, PERI invests approx. 80 million euros in Weissenhorn.
For load combinations in tunnel, bridge and building construction, PERI provides for the first time a construction kit consisting of standardized, rentable system components and connecting means.

The biomass power plant at the central production site in Weissenhorn is a symbol of combined economic and ecological sustainability at PERI.
With a length of 1.455 km and the impressive width of 60 m, the Sheikh Khalifa Bridge connects the mainland of Abu Dhabi with Saadiyat Island.
The new construction of the giant lock facilities on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts respectively is the largest single order in the company's history.
PERI is the first formwork and scaffolding manufacturer to offer its customers direct access to the required information. All project documentation is available online at any time.
In April 2014, Dr. Fabian Kracht becomes Head of Finance and Organization. From May 2015 on, Leonhard Braig joins PERI as Head of Products and Technology. (from the left) Dr. Fabian Kracht, Alexander Schwörer and Leonhard Braig
The unique shape of the reinforced concrete pylons and the complexity of the mounted parts for the construction of the third bridge across the Bosporus in Istanbul, Turkey, have required a very flexible planning process – a complete solution from PERI with the ACS Self-Climbing Formwork.
The competitor Schaltec becomes part of the PERI Group. This enlarges PERI's portfolio by the adequate services of refurbishment and trade with used goods.
We present our worldwide novelty DUO for the first time at bauma 2016. DUO allows for flexible forming of walls, columns and slabs with only one system and without a crane.
PERI's identity has grown over the years and is expressed in new words in an updated mission statement. It contributes to the fact that vision, mission, values and success factors are pursued and lived by conviction even in the event of rapid growth.
Inspired by PERI UP Flex, PS 100 integrated the advantages from PERI UP Flex with an enhancement on the shoring strength. As a free-standing shoring tower, the PS 100 shoring tower is designed to accommodate heavy loads, like precast bridge elements and other infrastructures.
PS100 is being used widely as a stable and flexible shoring system with high load-bearing capacity, and is now available in Greater China.
HANDSET Alpha has been designed for an intensive use on your construction site to build walls, foundations and columns without crane. The system comes with a competitive price and very high performance. Thanks to the robust and ingenious design, it is easy to use, resulting in the reduction of errors. Plus: hassle-free working on site can cut your costs significantly.
To reduce the total cost of heavy-duty applications, we have developed the PERI HDS system, heavy-duty-shoring system, which is specially designed for pre-cast bridges and other heavy load application. It provides fast and easy assembly and the height can be easily adjusted by screw jacks.
