It’s all systems go again for FUCHS Europoles

We’re now ready to launch again under new management and with a promise to deliver the usual quality

Strategic reinforcement in infrastructure segment

On April 1, 2019 FUCHS & Söhne GmbH from Berching acquired major interests in the Europoles Group. As well as the concrete pole plant in Neumarkt with project offices in Gladbeck, Esterwegen and Leipzig, the takeover package also includes the Servicing and Maintenance Division, the GFRP plant in Neumarkt and Swiss subsidiary Europoles Suisse GmbH. A total of 390 employees will keep their jobs.

Focus on concrete and FRP

Conrad Fuchs, managing partner of FUCHS & Söhne GmbH, sees great potential in this commitment: “As a family of companies, FUCHS is systematically pursuing a growth strategy in our core areas of expertise and is also increasingly investing in companies already established on the market. The key products and services in the Europoles Infrastructure Division based on the materials concrete and GFRP are an excellent complement to the product range of our precast concrete parts factories and construction firms.”

Facing up to the challenges

In the case of Europoles, FUCHS is focusing on the company’s market-leading position in Europe as a manufacturer of poles, columns and carrier systems. The company offers standard and custom solutions as well as turnkey systems including all services from consulting to dismantling. Europoles uses both proven and innovative technologies and materials in concrete, steel and glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP). The company is distinguished by its longstanding experience and excellent technical problem-solving capabilities. Its customers come from industry, the public sector and the construction trade. Europoles serves the infrastructure markets for transport, energy and telecommunications and realizes applications in the structural engineering and special construction segments.

As part of the FUCHS family of companies, Europoles will in future be integrated into the FUCHS corporate identity. The new affiliation is reinforced by the color purple and corporate logo.

The FUCHS family of companies is the third generation of a financially strong, mid-sized corporation. For more than 75 years the companies in the group have had a shared passion for construction. Nationwide, a workforce of more than 1,400 earns annual revenue of around €300 million. As well as five precast concrete parts factories with business units environmental technology, infrastructure and structural and civil engineering, the company operates several construction firms in the commercial, industrial, civil and road engineering segments, a prefabricated house company and a plant engineering company. Real estate and project development is also a key segment of our corporate structure.
