The French concessions and construction company VINCI was founded in 1899. In the years since, it has been involved in numerous mergers and acquisitions. Most notably, Société Générale d’Entreprises, as VINCI was known at the time, was acquired by Vivendi in 1988. It then went on to acquire the UK operations of construction and aggregates giants Taylor Woodrow and Tarmac in the mid-2000s.
The company name, chosen in 2000, pays tribute to the genius of Leonardo da Vinci, whose ‘humanism, inventiveness and technical resourcefulness’ inspire the company’s mission.
Following another high-profile merger with Eurovia in 2021, VINCI Construction now comprises over 1,000 companies and 115,000 employees, offering an unrivalled scope of services across the building, civil engineering and infrastructure industries.
The company’s concessions arm operates across many of the world’s major airports, including Hollywood Burbank and Atlantic City International in the US, Belfast International and Gatwick in the UK, Porto and Lisbon in Portugal and Rennes Bretagne and Lyon Bron in France.
Now a world leader in concessions, energy and construction, VINCI spans more than 4,000 business units, with 314,000 worksites worldwide. The company has a market capitalisation of EUR 55bn and generated revenues of over EUR 61bn in 2022.
As well as transforming the construction and concessions industries, VINCI is committed to being a force for good in the wider world. The company worked extensively on the confinement of the Chernobyl reactor to guarantee the safety of millions of people. It also supports middle school students from underprivileged areas throughout their education.
