The PFEIFER Difference

A Global Force in the Design, Engineering, Fabrication and Installation of complex Cable & Tensile Membrane Structures and Lightweight Building Envelope solutions

In May 2016, FabriTec Structures and Guard-All Building Solutions joined PFEIFER Group to form a new global force in the complex cable and tensile membrane structure industry. Having already acquired Shanghai-based Covertex, an industry leader in PTFE, PVC and ETFE membrane manufacturing, and another Austrian-based company specialized in control systems for retractable and movable light weight structures, the merged companies have a global presence with over 1,800 employees operating from 20 different countries.

The new team, with offices in Canada, United States, Mexico, Germany, Austria, Poland, Qatar, Singapore and China, combines a worldwide presence with the highest level of skills in technical specification and design, budgeting, contracting and project management; including site management and construction.

This new partnership represents the only construction supplier in the world with the capabilities and experience to manufacture cables, stainless steel hardware, steel fabrication, movable systems and ETFE, PTFE and PVC membrane fabrication on a very large scale.
