Forward-thinking – concreting technology

Internationalisation, digitalisation and changing work processes are dictating the future of our industry. Continuous know-how transfer and support services have thus become a key strategic instrument in meeting the needs of our customers worldwide.

MEVA's brand promise – "Formwork. Simple. Smart." – expresses the company's clear commitment to making its product solutions even more flexible and intuitive. From the overall construction process on site to the technical specifics at product level, it is a perspective that encompasses far more than just formwork.

Various factors, including the ongoing digitalisation and design networking, shortages of skilled staff and the growing complexity of requirements, have thrown our industry into a state of flux. To meet present and future challenges, MEVA has therefore adopted a strategy combining a high degree of systematisation with easy adaptability in all product segments. The advent of intelligent virtual systems as an integral part of everyday site practice heralds further radical changes in the market. True to its role as industry innovator and pioneer, MEVA uses 2D/3D CAD and BIM technology for the reliable designing of formwork with detailed material schedules.

Florian F. Dingler, born in 1982 and Master of Science graduate of EDHEC Business School, has been Owner and Managing Director of MEVA Schalungs-Systeme GmbH since October 2013. He manages the MEVA Group in cooperation with his father, Gerhard Dingler, who founded the company in 1970 and built it up into a formwork partner of worldwide renown.
