Operating globally in 32 countries, Harsco Infrastructure specialises in two core market sectors, providing construction services and industrial maintenance services. As one of the world’s largest access, formwork and industrial maintenance service providers, the company provides innovative, engineered solutions to some of the world's largest construction, energy and processing suppliers. The global Harsco Infrastructure business was created when a number of regional specialists were joined together by Harsco in 2010. These included SGB, Hünnebeck, Patent Construction Systems and ESCO.
In September 2013, Harsco Corporation announced to sell its Infrastructure business into a joint venture with the private investment firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice. At the same time, CD&R purchased Brand Energy and Infrastructure Services, Inc and will combine the two businesses as a leading single-source provider of specialized construction and industrial services to the worldwide energy and infrastructure sectors.
