Company Description

Since first going into action in 1909, the BESIX Group has over the years grown into a multidisciplinary company with a leading position in its markets : construction, property development and concessions.

In Benelux and France, the Group’s regional affiliates BESIX Infra, Belemco, Cobelba, Jacques Delens, Vanhout, Wust and Lux TP ensure a strong presence and a local approach.

With Franki Foundations, West Construct, Socogetra, Sanotec and Van den Berg, the Group offers specialist niche solutions for the building market like deep foundations, geo-
