Quality, safety and cost-effectiveness are the values guiding our strategy in products and technology. Our organisation is streamlined to meeting the demands of the concrete contractor all over the world, today and in the future."

Dingler, born 1982 and an MBA graduate of the EDHEC Business School, has been owner and managing director of MEVA Formwork Systems since October 2013 and runs the MEVA Group in cooperation with his father, Gerhard Dingler, who founded the company in 1970 and built up MEVA to become a leading international formwork brand.
MEVA is "...more than just formwork". Beyond a quality product, it is the expertise of 500 team members around the world that makes the difference for you as a concrete contractor, for your project, for your building sites.
What counts is not merely the high-quality product, the technically advanced solution or the strong rental fleet, but the people behind all this. It is people who make the difference, who personify the MEVA's expertise, who create answers and it is the team that takes care of our customers, giving the MEVA brand a face.
