Leada Acrow signs multi-million pound deal with MEVA
Leada Acrow, the formwork, falsework and groundwork division of A-Plant, has signed a multi-million pound deal with MEVA, renewing their strategic partnership for a further three years.
The investment, which strengthens the company’s current supply agreement with MEVA, will see the company’s existing powder-coated Mammut system replaced with MEVA’s new generation of galvanised 350 formwork panels.
Leada Acrow will receive its first order of M350 hot-dip galvanised panels at the end of March and the company plan to roll out the new equipment across their nine service centres.
Responding to changing environmental requirements, MEVA’s new galvanizing method uses the latest technology and provides the panel with the best possible coating solution, offering optimal corrosion protection to the equipment.
Barry Furlong, Director of Leada Acrow, believes the deal, which represents the biggest investment in formwork in Leada Acrow’s history, will give the company the opportunity to provide a superior product into the UK formwork hire market.
He said: “After several months of discussions we have signed a new three year agreement with MEVA, which includes the upgrading of our existing painted Mammut system to the company’s improved M350 Galvanised Panels.
“This is a big step forward for our business and we are excited about the opportunities this investment will open up to us.”
Leada Acrow hires formwork, falsework and groundwork systems, as well as edge protection systems and heavy-duty shoring and support for a wide range of developments. It has been using MEVA’s products since 1991 and received exclusive supplier rights in December 2013.
Mr Furlong said Leada Acrow’s decision to renew their agreement with MEVA reflects the company’s continuing commitment to excellence.
He said: “Renewing our agreement with MEVA shows our continuing commitment to both the product and the industry. The continuation of this long standing supply arrangement gives us another fantastic opportunity to be our customer’s number one choice for formwork.”
