FORTA, LLC. Acquires TCPavements/OptiPave

Delivering State-of-the-Art Technology to the Concrete Industry

    GROVE CITY, PA, June 08, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- FORTA, a leading supplier to the international construction market of fiber reinforcement products is pleased to announce that TCPavements and its OptiPave Software have become part of the FORTA family.

With this recent acquisition, it will be possible to deliver advanced state-of-the-art technology to the concrete industry while globally expanding the use of this optimized pavement design methodology. This technology is based on designing concrete pavement so that no more than one wheel or set of wheels will be loading the same slab at any time.

This technology is further enhanced using FORTA's flagship product FORTA-FERRO®. This macro synthetic fiber improves the residual strength of the concrete and structural capacity of the pavement. The addition of this macro synthetic fiber also gives better performance over its lifetime in post-cracking stages.

• Increased Service Life
• Reduced Maintenance
• Minimizes Curl & Stresses
• Eliminates Dowels & Rebar

Of the merger, Juan Pablo Covarrubias of TCPavements states,

"We look forward to continued innovation and growth together, finding innovative solutions and, as always, providing optimized and personalized advice and service to our clients."

TCPavements, located originally in Santiago, Chile, worked to implement this new technology in over 15 countries, allowing the construction of more sustainable pavement solutions and lowering the overall cost of construction. Over the years, TCPavements and its team have gained worldwide recognition in the industry thanks to its development of OptiPave software.
