The main raw materials used are wood, wood-plastic composites, steel, and aluminum. Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest building in the world, the Lotte World Tower in Seoul, the tallest building in East Asia, the Vladivostok Bridge, which breaks two world records in terms of span width and pylon height - they were all built with formwork solutions from the Doka Group.
Various system components such as wall and floor formwork, climbing and load-bearing systems, and safety systems are produced from a variety of raw and composite materials. Most of the production takes place in the central plant in Amstetten, but there are also production facilities in Slovakia and, more recently, in Russia, and an assembly site in Germany. The 6,700 employees are responsible for consulting and training and other services such as project management, ready-to-use service, assembly, reconditioning service, logistics, and process optimization.
