How it all began
The name ‘COFFRAL’ is inspired of the French word “Coffrage”, meaning “Formworks”.
The COFFRAL Asia Pacific Group all began in the 1970s with its founding father, Jules Goudsmit, who invented the Staflex / H-Frame shoring system and was the first to implement it in Asia. The company, which is tracing its roots to decades of European tradition and expertise, was later established in the Philippines in January 2010 and is now owned by Jim Goudsmit, the son of the founder.
