BESIX Group is a leading Belgian industrial company operating in the construction, real estate development and concessions sectors. It profiles itself as a multi-service group taking on projects of all sizes. Founded in 1909, it has grown steadily over the years.
NV BESIX SA, its largest subsidiary, offers services in the different
stages of construction projects. In addition to NV BESIX SA and
its other subsidiaries, BESIX Infra, Cobelba, Jacques Delens, Socogetra,
Van den Berg, Vanhout, Wust, Franki Foundations, BESIX RED, Lux TP, in the Benelux and in France, BESIX Group operates in Northern and Eastern Europe, North and Central Africa and the Middle East through its subsidiary Six Construct, as well as in Canada and Australia.
The group stands out in its sector by having its own internal Engineering
Department, with wide-ranging expertise in geotechnical engineering, concrete technology, methods, planning, and BIM, System Engineering and similar tools. The group offers ‘value engineering’: optimising the design work and adapting the implementation processes so as to minimise the risks and costs of errors and optimise expenditure and lead times for the customer.
BESIX Group has consistently focused on diversifying its activities, as regards both geographical location and sector, either through organic growth or by acquisitions or shareholdings. A typical example of this is in the Middle East, where the group has been building an impressive
portfolio over the last 50 years. This diversification is bearing fruit, as it reduces its exposure to risk. Through its many projects and initiatives, the Group is constantly seeking to consolidate its purpose: “To excel in creating sustainable solutions for a better world.”
