ULMA Construction strengthens its position in the US with the acquisition of SOCON Forming & Shoring

ULMA Construction has taken control of SOCON Forming & Shoring through its US subsidiary ULMA Form-Works Inc., with the aim of extending and consolidating its presence on America’s South-East coast.

SOCON has offices in Georgia and Alabama and has been a renowned supplier of formwork and services to the construction market in this area since 2008. It carries out construction projects ranging from residential buildings, high-rise constructions and hospitals to water treatment plants and bridges. Two of its most emblematic projects are the Atlanta Braves Stadium and the Georgia Aquarium.

These new locations and the upcoming opening of a logistics base in Florida to add to the current centres in New Jersey and Maryland will give ULMA market access to the entire East Coast, one of America’s highest potential growth areas in this sector. With this acquisition, ULMA Construction expects to practically triple its 2015 turnover on the US market in the next 3 years.
