Rymarz Zdort advised the Polcom Group (the “Polcom Group”) on concluding a partial scheme of arrangement with a consortium of lenders, and in its subsequent merger with Volumetric Building Companies (“VBC”).
The Polcom Group, with its operations centre based in Gdansk, is one of the leading international manufacturers of steel modular buildings. The Group has completed some of the most innovative hotel projects in North America and Europe, including world-class hotel buildings in New York, Seattle, London, Washington, and Amsterdam.
VBC is a US leader in modular construction, headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with offices in the United States and, through its merger with the Polcom Group, also in Europe. It focuses on constructing modular buildings based on timber modular technology for the multifamily residential market to provide affordable housing for American and European families.
The merger of two modular construction giants will make the newly formed entity the leading provider of optimised, efficient and sustainable modular construction solutions worldwide.
