The company was formed in 1992 through the merger of several long standing companies, namely: Fougerolle (founded 1844), Quillery (founded 1863), Beugnet (founded 1871), and La Societe Auxiliaire d' Enterprises Electriques et de Travaux Public, better known as SAE (founded in 1924).

Major projects[edit]

Recent projects have included the Channel Tunnel, completed in 1994;[3] the Copenhagen Metro, completed in 2002;[4] the Millau Viaduct,[1] completed in 2004;[5] and the LGV Perpignan-Figueres high-speed railway line,[1] completed in 2009.[6]
