Peikko has acquired the product rights of the ATLANT® composite columns, a product developed in Switzerland. The proprietary, solid core composite columns are slimmer than traditional, Eurocode-based standard composite columns. The ATLANT® composite columns are expected to support Peikko’s DELTABEAM® Frame sales particularly in Austria and Switzerland.
The seller of the product rights is the insolvency administrator of the company “Tuchschmid AG” in Frauenfeld, Switzerland. Peikko has had some co-operation with the company already many years. The purchase of the product rights includes technical documentation, certificates, trademarks and structural calculation tools. Simultaneously, Peikko recruited former Tuchschmid employees and established a new office for its entity Peikko Schweiz AG in Frauenfeld, Switzerland.
“Architectural requirements for the size and width of structural columns are increasing, particularly in office buildings and taller structures. We believe that we can build a unique slim floor offering by combining Peikko’s DELTABEAM® composite beam and the purchased ATLANT® composite column. This offering will at first give Peikko new opportunities in the Austrian and Swiss markets, and later in other countries too, particularly when combined with manufacturing in our modern and efficient factories,” states Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
