Acimex: Expert in gripping and lifting of heavy loads

For more than 40 years, Acimex is the leader in the domain of industrial gripping and lifting of heavy loads and pieces: We design and manufacture vacuum devices for the handling of concrete, steel or PVC pieces and large scale tubes and pipes

Lifting by vacuum technology

We work for major project building sites and companies in public construction and civil engineering (Bouygues, Vinci etc.). We supply vacuum technology to tunnel builder companies (NFM, Robbins, Hitachi etc.) as well as to energy network construction ventures (GRDF). We work in the steel domain for the aerospace industries (EADS-Airbus, Dassault etc.).


Our products are used under extreme conditions on hostile, perilous, exiguous grounds where other lifting systems cannot work, i.e. installation of segments by TBM.

Acimex means reliability, safety, experience, knowledge and quality, regarding customized equipment for lifting, tilting, turning and storing large and heavy pieces. We develop systems able to lift and handle up to 30 tons in full safety
