Kirchdorfer Group’s DELTABLOC® and their new STEELBLOC® product range is internationally successful, particularly in vehicle restraint systems. Now, by creating a dedicated business division, the claim of the market and technology leader is underlined.
Encompassing over 50 companies, segmented into the cement, raw materials and precast concrete business divisions, Kirchdorfer Group is active internationally. As a result of the rapid growth of the DELTABLOC® Group and the advance into the complementary steel crash barrier business field, DELTA BLOC International GmbH including its subsidiaries is now managed in its own “Kirchdorfer Road & Traffic” division.
Erich Frommwald, CEO of Kirchdorfer Group, explains the motivation and strategy behind this decision:
“For several years now, DELTABLOC® has recorded annual growth rates of up to 50 %. With the creation of its own division, which primarily covers the areas of passive road safety and noise protection, we are underscoring the growing economic significance of DELTABLOC® and sending a signal to our competitors around the world that we are further expanding our strong market position and our product portfolio.”
From Pioneer to international market leader with DELTABLOC®
DELTABLOC® was launched 25 years ago by the „MABA Fertigteilindustrie GmbH“ and has since developed into the world’s most successful and comprehensive vehicle restraint system provider with over 250 crash tests. Under the leadership of CEO Thomas Edl, DELTABLOC International GmbH was able to establish itself as a market and technology leader in several international markets. Over the past few years, the patented system of interlinked precast concrete elements has been supplemented by an equally innovative in-situ concrete solution and expanded with integrated noise protection walls. A just as revolutionary new development of steel crash barriers has been marketed under the name STEELBLOC® since 2019.
The Kirchdorfer Road & Traffic division envelops 8 national companies as well as licensing and production partners in more than 50 countries and offers the most extensive system range for passive road safety worldwide with more than 100 system types.
