Joining forces
Austria/Malaysia, February 16th, 2024 – Doka, a global leader in formwork and scaffolding, now combines its strengths with Malaysian-based MFE Formwork Technology, market leader in monolithic aluminium formwork. Doka and MFE – together, they are now the major player in the Asia-Pacific region. For customers, this means innovative solutions from a single source.


With this acquisition, Doka has achieved another significant milestone in its strategic growth plan and thus strengthen its position in Southeast Asia and the Pacific region, an important growth market alongside North America.

Robert Hauser, CEO Doka GmbH, says: “I am very pleased to finally announce that MFE is now part of Doka and thus part of the global Umdasch Group. We have been in a sales partnership for many years, which we are now taking to the next level. MFE is an experienced company with great expert know-how and state-of-the-art production facilities. Its innovative and high-quality products are highly appreciated by its customers.”

Perfect completion in product portfolio as well as global reach
Founded in 1991, MFE has become a world leader in monolithic aluminium formwork solutions. Using monolithic formwork allows elements such as slabs and walls to be formed in a single pour, resulting in a seamless, jointless structure. This technique is particularly suited to projects with less complex and repetitive geometric requirements. With its headquarters in Malaysia and more than 2,200 employees, the company has established itself as a reliable partner for efficient construction projects and sets standards in the construction industry. Doka, on the other hand, is the specialist for steel formwork in combination with timber and is characterized by solutions in the large-scale sector, for example in high-rise, infrastructure or power plant construction.

“By joining our forces we create a unique one-stop-shop formwork portfolio for our customers. With the right formwork solution for every project and size at hand, we can now respond to our customers’ needs even better. Additionally, we offer scaffolding solutions from a single source, making us unbeatable”, states Robert Hauser.

MFE, on the other hand, gains a robust owner as Doka has an extensive global sales network and is active in over 60 countries with more than 170 locations. “Today marks an important landmark in our 35-year history. We are excited about joining the Doka-family, which opens up new horizons for collaboration and enhances our ability to reach a wider audience globally. Together, we look forward to leveraging our combined strengths and expertise to drive innovation and provide unparalleled solutions to our customers around the world”, says Jim Robinson, Group Chairman, MFE Group of Companies.
