Home About Us Innovation


Innovation is in Freyssinet's blood. Since Eugène Freyssinet invented prestressed concrete in 1928, the company has based its growth on dynamic innovation, as borne out by numerous technological advances that have changed the civil engineering world.

To perpetuate the pioneering spirit of its founders, the company implements and invests heavily in an active research and development policy, lead by a Technical Department and a worldwide network of experts working closely with research laboratories and universities.

Evidence of this innovative drive can be found in the constant enhancement of the company's expertise to the benefit of its clients, and includes stay cables, suspension cables, regeneration of materials, structural maintenance, the Foreva® repair label, and more.

Freyssinet develops exclusive products and processes
in all its areas of operation, for which almost 200 patents have been filed over the past two decades.
