The 2000s

In 2000, the group started up structural activities in the United States, as demonstrated by the supply of the stay cables for the Leonard P. Zakim Bridge in Boston. It also strengthened its presence in Africa through its subsidiaries in South Africa and Egypt, notably taking part in the construction of the Aswan Bridge in 2002. In 2008, Freyssinet consolidated all of its nuclear activities into a new company, Nuvia.

In 2009, Freyssinet, Menard, Terre Armée and Nuvia came together with Soletanche Bachy to form the Soletanche Freyssinet Group. In the same year, Freyssinet created the Foreva® label for its repair business.
