Deltabeam's Innovator Jorma Kyckling Retires

Deltabeam Composite Beam is the most significant single product of Peikko Group. Deltabeams have been used in over 10.000 buildings worldwide, e.g. in Europe, North America and Asia.

Peikko has always wanted during its almost 50-year history to develop its product portfolio and bring new precast technology enhancing innovations to the market. In 1985 Jorma Kyckling was hired to Peikko. A composite beam named Deltabeam was designed in his guidance to be used in building frames ideally together with hollow-core slabs. The sales and production of Deltabeam were started in full scale during 1989–1990. Since then Kyckling has made a long career at Peikko holding different Deltabeam sales and product development related international posts.

“We can seldom see people like Jorma Kyckling having had globally such an impact on the competitiveness and flexibility of precast construction. We at Peikko are proud and thankful of his innovations. He ends now his almost 30-year career at Peikko and starts his well-earned retirement” states Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
