A dynamic french SME

Created in 1971, in France, ACIMEX earned its fame on the French territory in the lifting and handling of steel sheets, at the service of metallurgy and the steel industry.

The company then spread its savoir-faire and its skills to the concrete and pipe industry. Once established as one of the leaders in terms of lifting and handling in the tunnel sector, ACIMEX was bought in 2010 by CBE Group, international expert in the conception of moulds for tunnel segments. This new partnership allowed both entities to offer complementary solutions on several contracts.

The administrative offices of ACIMEX and its production workshop are located in the region Centre – Val de Loire, in Saint-Avertin. ACIMEX has an integrated Design Office, which allows its team to design its products in 3D and to meet the client expectations as fully as possible.

ACIMEX has been granted the ISO 9001 certification in 2016ISO 9001-ACIMEX-COFRAC (2015 version). This certification confirms the company’s professionalism and the respect of the standards and legal requirements necessary through the whole process of production, delivery and after-sales service.
