On Oct. 31, 2019, Bekaert concluded the buy-out of Maccaferri‘s 50% share in Bekaert Maccaferri Underground Solutions (BMUS), and beginning in January 2020 is working under the Bekaert name. Customers will not notice any difference in service level. Bekaert will continue providing the same quality products (Dramix®, Duomix®, Synmix®) and services the BMUS customers are used to.
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 various trade shows and events in the tunneling and mining industry to maintain and reinforce the bond with the broader underground market.
