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' Entreprises Electriques et de Travaux Public, better known as SAE (founded in 1924).[3]

Major projects[edit]

Recent projects have included the Channel Tunnel, completed in 1994;[4] the Copenhagen Metro, completed in 2002;[5] the Millau Viaduct,[1] completed in 2004;[6] and the TGV Perpignan-Figueres high-speed railway line,[1] completed in 2009.[7]

Eiffage is also involved in HS2 lots C2 and C3, working as part of a joint venture, with main construction work to start in 2018/9.[8]
