Leada Acrow Makes Investment with MEVA

Leada Acrow has continued the expansion of its hire fleet of equipment by placing a £0.5 million order for Mammut heavy-duty formwork components manufactured by German-based MEVA, one of the world’s leading concrete formwork and falsework producers.

The order expands Leada Acrow’s partnership with MEVA even further, as Leada Acrow is the largest supplier of MEVA hire products in the UK market. This latest order comprises fractional panels and striking corners used as part of Leada Acrow’s Mammut formwork and MEVA Guided Climbing Systems (MGC) used for stair and lift shaft construction.

Barry Furlong, Director of Leada Acrow said: “This latest investment reflects the high customer demand for our Mammut formwork systems. Our customers have recognised the many benefits of using Mammut formwork on-site, in terms of efficiency, cost savings and the finish achieved. High pours can be carried out rapidly on very large structures and the end result is a superior concrete finish.”

Barry continued: “Mammut panels are the pioneers of the industry, they symbolise the breakthrough of modular panel systems into civil and industrial engineering. The original Mammut was the first system ever to make large-scale pours possible, saving time and money. Its successor system Mammut 350 set the industry's benchmark with its 100 kN/m² concrete load capacity throughout the system. With its all-plastic alkus facing and its symmetrical tie-hole and joint imprint, Mammut 350 has become the leading formwork system for achieving architectural finishes in civil engineering, commercial and residential construction.”
