Bekaert takes full control of the Underground Solutions brand

19 December 2019

Belgium – On 31 October Bekaert concluded the buy-out of Maccaferri's 50% share in Bekaert Maccaferri Underground Solutions (BMUS) and as a result, the Underground Solutions team will work under the Bekaert name from January onward.

Customers will not notice any differences as Bekaert will keep providing the same quality products (Dramix, Duomix, Synmix) and all usual services.

Dieter Hansel is the newly-appointed general manager, who will work together with the existing team of technical and commercial experts.

A spokesperson for the company said, “The current team of underground solutions experts continues to offer its customers technical guidance and support in the reinforcement of concrete in underground construction projects, such as shotcrete and precast applications. At the same time, the underground solutions team will represent Bekaert at trade shows and events in the tunnelling and mining industry to maintain and reinforce the bond with the broader underground market.”
