Cadolto Modulbau now part of the Zech Group

Bremen, 30 July 2018. Zech Group GmbH has entered into an agreement to acquire a majority interest (75.1%) in Cadolto Modulbau GmbH, a business recently founded by the long established German company Cadolto Fertiggebäude GmbH & Co. KG. After purchasing a share in the Austrian timber-hybrid construction specialist Cree GmbH in April 2018, the Zech Group has thus now also gained access to the modular steel construction market. The highly qualified staff, know-how and production experience of Cadolto Fertiggebäude GmbH & Co. KG are a valuable addition to Cadolto Modulbau GmbH. Roughly 350 people are employed at production facilities in Cadolzburg near Nuremberg and in Krölpa in the federal state of Thuringia.

“Modular construction will play an ever increasing role in the construction landscape in the future, as digitalised planning using BIM and professional prefabrication reduce on-site noise, dust and dirt levels and additionally save time and money. Thanks to Cadolto Modulbau GmbH, we have further expanded our range of services to include modular steel construction which, due to its flexibility and structural integrity, complements perfectly our previous catalogue of products in timber-hybrid and concrete modular construction,” explains Olaf Demuth, CEO Zech Group.
