Freyssinet Australia is a multifaceted contractor providing innovative solutions from design through to implementation for specialist civil engineering, building post-tensioning and remediation.
While the company has maintained a presence within the country since 1953 through licence holders, Freyssinet as it exists today was established in 1983, with the acquisition of a fifty per cent stake holding in the then established Austress PCS by Freyssinet International, a global network based in France. In 2006, Freyssinet had full ownership of the organisation.
The company’s title was changed to Freyssinet in 2009, after their merger with Soletanche Bachy and Freyssinet’s worldwide launch of a new business image and logo. Even at the time when Freyssinet’s Australian interests were entirely managed through their licensee, the company has consistently sustained a deep involvement within the country’s market.
In the late 1950’s, company owner and creator, Eugene Freyssinet, was invited as a consultant in the construction of the Gladesville Bridge in Sydney, at that time the largest concrete arch bridge in the world, for which Freyssinet supplied the bridge joints and flat jacks. Today, Freyssinet maintains a strong national presence with offices in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia and New Zealand.
Our approach to meeting construction, specialist civil engineering and remediation requirements is through innovation, performance and long-term durability.
