Presentation of Eiffage

Eiffage (website) is the third largest civil engineering construction company in France and the fifth largest in Europe. Eiffage was incorporated in 1993 as the merger of Fougerolle and SAE. The group includes several companies with a long history in civil engineering construction.

Fougerolle, founded in 1844 by Philippe Fougerolle (1806-1883), was involved in the building of the Nivernais Canal. The company built in 1955 the Tancarville bridge, spanning over the Seine, for years the longest (1,350 m) suspended bridge in the world.
The SAE (Société auxiliaire d'entreprises électriques et de travaux publics) was founded in 1924 by the brothers Albert and Ernest de Marchena and Gino Valatelli. In 1938, most of their 600 workers were employed in the building of the first part of the first French highway, between Paris and Saint-Cloud, the famous Saint-Cloud tunnel included.
The name of the group is a contraction of "Eiffel", "Fougerolle" and "SAE". Eiffel, a company specialized in metallic construction founded in 1866 by the engineer Gustave Eiffel (1832-1923), was taken over by SAE in 1990.

Eiffage is divided in Eiffage Construction, Eiffage Immobilier (Real Estate), Eiffage Aménagement (Planning), Eiffage Route (Road transport), Eiffage Génie Civil (Civil Engineering), Eiffage Métal (Metallic Construction), Gyer (aluminum and glass facades), and Eiffage énergie Systèmes. The group was also granted a number of highways concessions.
Among the achievements of Eiffage are the Millau Viaduct (2004), the Pierre Mauroy Stadiun in Lille-Villeneuve d'Ascq (2012), and the renovated Picasso Museum in Paris (2014).
Ongoing or planned projects are the reconstruction of the Grand Hôtel-Dieu in Lyon, the design of the Smarteille smart borough in Marseilles, and the building of the industrial campus of group Michelin in Ladoux.
