RMD Kwikform is a company based in Aldridge, England, that hires and sells temporary works and engineering design for building, construction and infrastructure projects.

History[edit]

The company was formed as "Mills Scaffold Company" in 1935 and became GKN Kwikform on acquisition by GKN in 1983.[1] It expanded rapidly in formwork and scaffolding under GKN ownership in the end of the 1980s.[2] RMD, the formwork and scaffolding unit of RM Douglas (which by then was a subsidiary of Interserve),[3] merged with GKN Kwikform to form RMD Kwikform in June 2000.[4][1]

Projects built using RMD Kwikform equipment included the New Tyne Tunnel, completed in February 2011.[5] In 2015, RMD Kwikform launched its ground shoring range of products, extending its capabilities to ground works applications.[6]
