Peikko acquired a corbel patent from ZECH as part of the extended cooperation

Peikko Group Corporation has acquired the product rights of a corbel system from ZECH Hochbau AG. The purchase includes patent, product documentation, calculations, and the knowhow. Peikko will be the manufacturer for the solution and the exclusive supplier to ZECH for the next three years. The parties have agreed to cooperate in the future not only in this product area but also on other business matters.

This corbel system, now called Peikko STAIRPOD®, is used in stairway shafts to connect precast stairs into the shaft. Construction companies have already been using this system for several years as it improves speed, efficiency, and safety on the building site. Peikko will manufacture STAIRPOD® corbel systems in its factory in Germany.

“We are proud to cooperate with one of the fastest growing German-based building companies and we believe that the partnership now started will be significantly expanded in the coming years. The corbel is a well-thought product, and we see good opportunities for it in a wide number of countries”, says Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.

“We are pleased to cooperate with Peikko and we believe that with Peikko’s strong knowhow on connections this product can be developed further”, says Bernd Stadelmaier, who was responsible for the development of the product. “We are also confident that this cooperation will bring clear benefits for both companies”, comments Markus Netzker, Head of Engineering, ZECH Hochbau AG.
