Global trends such as urbanisation and the population growth are important triggers for innovations in the construction industry. We need to develop greater efficiency in construction processes in order to meet the challenges as regards infrastructure, especially in mega-cities. Infrastructure projects for the world of tomorrow are being implemented today using the expertise of Doka.
The (business) world of tomorrow needs bright people who will play an active part in designing our future. Education is the best investment here. The Umdasch Group – which forms the holding for Doka – sets a good example by actively supporting a fairer access to education via the Umdasch Foundation.
The twin skyscrapers Petronas Towers are among the most famous highrise buildings in Kuala Lumpur. At the end of 2018, the Signature Tower will be a new architectural highlight gracing the skyline of Malaysia's capital city. The building will be one of the tallest in Asia and it will rank among the world's top 15. Doka's formwork expertise is very much in demand on this mega-project – another important milestone in highrise construction for the company.

Doka’s formwork expertise is currently in demand during the construction of one of the busiest motorway viaducts in Germany. The Lahntal bridge located in Limburg dates back to the early nineteen-sixties and is 400-metre long. Every day about 100,000 vehicles cross the valley of the River Lahn on the viaduct. Its traffic load has increased sharply, so a new bridge is being built sited just a few metres west of the old viaduct.

The Umdasch Group AG is a concern which is 100% family-owned and which has its headquarters in Amstetten. During 2015 it grew significantly once more and was thus able to demonstrate the success of its growth strategy for the fifth time in succession.

About 580,000 people from 200 nations visited bauma 2016. 3,423 exhibitors from 58 countries displayed their products and abilities on the 605,000 m2 of trade fair grounds. And about 4,000 m² of that total gleamed brightly in Doka yellow.
