Doka will present its latest product innvoations during bauma 2022 when it opens its doors from 24-30 October to demonstrate its commitment to ‘creating real added value for customers’
To highlight this, the company will display its scaffolding options alongside advances in its formwork portfolio, and numerous highlights from the fields of digitalisation and sustainability.
"At bauma 2022, we will be presenting ourselves, for the first time, as part of the Umdasch Group. This positions the business as a strong partner across the entire construction lifecycle, and creates a unique platform that delivers valuable synergies to participants,” said Robert Hauser, CEO of Doka.
Under the motto ‘DOKA CONNECTS’, the group of companies is offering attendees the opportunity to discover more about products, innovations and trends. Visitors can look forward to a display presenting 45 exhibits, a wide range of activities, and a total of 110 live shows bringing the theme to life. Visitors will also have the opportunity to engage with the human resources team to find out about career opportunities.
At the conference, Doka will launch a new era in floor formwork as it demonstrates an unprecedented family of systems in the segment; will highlight the upgrade of Framax Xlife alongside additional product enhancements; and, in the area of infrastructure, will focus on the presentation of the innovative Doka UniKit system with several components, the primary and secondary beam and the tower 480, on show.
For Doka, exchange with customers, partners and industry enthusiasts is crucial to building the future together. One of the future-oriented topics is digitalisation, which is evident across all product areas. In the digital services area, visitors will be able to try out Doka's latest digital solutions and services, including the Easy Formwork Planner, a mobile application that makes planning formwork almost intuitive. Doka's digital service offering will be presented in three areas – Smart Site, Smart Assistants and Smart Planning.
Making its inaugural appearance, SiteLight will introduce visitors to a whole new spectrum of construction site advertising opportunities. Doka engineers and the LED experts at sister company, umdasch The Store Makers, are revolutionising the old-fashioned advertising banners on construction sites with the creation of an inspired media that continuously changes perspective as the building grows. SiteLight opens new doors for marketing professionals in the digital out-of-home sector by using lightning technology and marketing partnerships to enable striking, but temporary digital advertising spaces in highly competitive areas.
Recognising the growing importance of sustainability, and the importance of ESG criteria in driving customers' investments, Doka has set ambitious goals in terms of sustainability. In a major project, Doka has calculated the product carbon footprint (PCF) of most of its 6,000 products.
"By making CO2 emissions data available to our customers at the level of individual products, we are providing a transparency that is unique in the construction industry,” Hauser explained. With this approach, as part of the supply chain, Doka is supporting its customer’s aims to reduce their own carbon footprint. At bauma 2022, Doka will detail the carbon footprint of a large proportion of the exhibits and products on display. In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about the Umdasch Group's initiatives at its own sustainability counter on the Doka stand.
All of this can be found at the Doka exhibit at booth FN.421 – FN.423).
