Prestressed concrete solutions business CCL’s Danish subsidiary Skandinavisk Spændbeton has acquired a 55 per cent share in Thilt Holdings AS, a specialist engineering company based in Aalesund, Norway.
The new company, to be known as CCL Buildings, will become a subsidiary of Spændbeton, and will service the Norwegian construction market in the design, supply and installation of CCL post-tensioned concrete slabs.
CCL Buildings will work in close coordination with existing CCL engineering companies.
The exchange of knowledge, information and technical expertise will also promote the continued development of post-tensioning within Norway.
Guy Tabet, CEO of CCL, which has its headquarters in Leeds, said: “We would like to take this opportunity to welcome Thilt Holdings to the CCL Group and look forward to a successful future together.
“This exciting venture will provide a dedicated and enhanced service to the Norwegian market.”
CCL designs, supplies and installs post-tensioned concrete slabs for buildings, helping to create imaginative, resource efficient structures across the globe.
The company also provides post-tensioning solutions for civil structures as well as pre-tensioning products and equipment, concrete repair and engineering services.
Well-known projects that CCL has been involved with in the UK include the award-winning Strata SE1 building in London’s Elephant & Castle; St George Wharf Tower, Vauxhall, London; the redevelopment of the British Museum; the retractable roof at Wimbledon’s Centre Court and Heathrow Terminal 5.
Spændbeton was founded in 1947 and deals with horizontal and vertical post-tensioned structures employing around 50 people.
