PERI Group, a leading company in formwork equipment, scaffolding, and tents expands its distribution of COBOD 3D construction printers.
PERI has successfully been distributing COBOD 3D construction printers since 2019 following that PERI in 2019 became a minority shareholder of COBOD. The cooperation is documented by PERI being COBOD’s largest customer having bought multiple printers for European and US customers. Since 2019 PERI also successfully used COBOD’s 3D construction printers on several projects, including the world’s first 3-story apartment building in Germany.
COBOD and PERI is now expanding the successful cooperation, such that PERI in Europe beyond German-speaking countries will also distribute COBOD’s printers in Poland, Benelux and France. In the US, PERI will be the distributor for the states of Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan in addition to Texas.
The expanded cooperation is coming as a response to the rapid growth and increased demand for 3D construction printers on a global scale. COBOD also recently signed a distribution cooperation with Thailand’s construction giant, Siam Cement Group, for distribution in Thailand and more distributor agreements are under preparation for Asia, The Middles East & Africa.
The aim of the expanded COBOD PERI cooperation is to leverage the significant know-how PERI has obtained related to 3D construction printing to the benefit of more markets in Europe and the US.
Fabian Meyer-Brötz, Head of 3D Printing at PERI said: “Our cooperation with COBOD has been highly successful and the development since our first involvement has gone much faster than expected. COBOD has really fast grasped the industry and become the globally leading provider of 3D construction printing technology. With the expanded cooperation, we are now ready to fuel the growth of both of our companies even further in Europe and the US”.
The partnership between COBOD and PERI matches COBOD’s leading technology with PERI’s unparalleled experience and expert understanding of the possibilities of the technology, together with PERI’s market reach and understanding of local conditions via PERI’s significant market presence in the selected countries and states.
Henrik Lund-Nielsen, Founder & General Manager of COBOD said: “We are thrilled that PERI is now investing further in securing the roll out of our technology to more markets. PERI has proven to be a perfect partner for us, and we would not be where we are today without PERI. In our quest to change the construction industry forever, we need partners that can cooperate with us on that mission, and we could not have found a better partner than PERI”.
