White Cap, the top source of specialty construction supplies and safety products for concrete and general contractors, has acquired Detroit-based Form Tech Concrete Forms, Inc., a key provider of forming and shoring rental equipment and related consumable products with seven locations serving Southeast, Midwest and Mid-Atlantic markets. Upon its inception in 1976, Form Tech was among the first independent formwork suppliers in the U.S., focused primarily on the Symons Steel-Ply Forming System. It presently maintains one of the largest Steel-Ply  fleets, along with modular clamp and shoring system offerings. 

Form Tech: Synonymous with Symons.

Citing the prospects for expanded forming and shoring capabilities across multiple markets, White Cap CEO John Stegeman notes, “By combining our knowledgeable teams, we are able to strengthen our ability to deliver an unparalleled depth and breadth of products and services to our customers.”

“Both Form Tech and White Cap are committed to providing exceptional customer service while maintaining the highest levels of safety and quality,” adds Form Tech Vice President of Sales Frank Smiser.
