Join us on an impressive journey through the eventful history of PERI. Advanced formwork, scaffolding products and 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 production hall is built on the 6,000 m² company premises in Weissenhorn.
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 formwork surrounds the concrete – the scaffolding surrounds the building.
The first subsidiaries are founded in Switzerland and France.
The first subsidiary outside the european continent is established.
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. Click below to learn more about TRIO.
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.

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 highest buidling in the world (at 452 m), the use of the ACS self-climbing system ensured smooth and problem-free construction progress.
With the Quadragon, an ultra-modern office building for the PERI staff in Weißenhorn is realized.

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.
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.
