Peikko’s solutions chosen for a biopharmaceutical plant expansion in Austria

Peikko’s Austrian subsidiary, Peikko Austria GmbH, has received a notable order for a biopharmaceutical production plant expansion of Boehringer Ingelheim in Vienna, Austria. The order comprises 600 pcs of PCs® Corbels and PC® Beam Shoes, 700 meters of DELTABEAM® Composite Beams, 4,000 pcs of PSB® Punching Reinforcement, and a sizeable amount of other connection items. Peikko’s deliveries will continue until October 2018, and the new production line is estimated to be operational in 2021.

Boehringer Ingelheim is a family-owned global, research-driven pharmaceutical company founded in 1885, employing 50,000 people worldwide. The estimated investment value of the new production line is EUR 700 million, and it will create approximately 500 new jobs in Vienna. Porr Bau GmbH is the contractor for construction and civil engineering, and Architekt Podsedensek ZT is responsible for the architectural design. The structural designer is AXIS Ingenieurdienstleistungen ZT GmbH, and the precast elements are supplied by Franz Oberndorfer GmbH & Co KG.

“The fact that Peikko’s solutions were chosen for this project demonstrates that we are a versatile supplier able to meet the needs of our customers. Our DELTABEAM® enables long spans while providing a slim floor structure. PCs® Corbels, on the other hand, are cost-efficient and take higher loads than many traditional solutions. Finding the optimal solution for our customers with a wide variety of applications is our expertise”, says Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
