PERI was founded in 1969 in Weißenhorn, Germany, by Artur Schwörer (died 2009). The company's name is taken from the Greek preposition "peri" (English: around). The first product was the T 70 V wooden lattice girder belt which had a patented node connection. This was replaced by the GT 24 girder in 1984. The ACS (Automatic Climbing System) was PERI's development of a self-climbing technology system. This technology enables the casting of tall buildings with minimal crane use. At the beginning of the 1980s, PERI was at the forefront of using aluminum in the construction business.

In 2008, Artur Schwörer was awarded the Bavarian Order of Merit for his lifes´s work.
