The BFS-solution for the production of monolithic concrete manhole bases

The Blaubeuren-based company BFS Betonfertigteilsysteme GmbH has developed a new technique for the production of monolithic concrete manhole bases of the “new generation”. Capitan is a sophisticated system ranging from the visual manhole design in the production engineering department up to a high-quality manhole base made in the manufacturing process. This system has been presented to the public at this year‘s bauma where it attracted great interest of the large number of trade visitors and gained their acceptance.
