Menard company was founded more than half a century ago by a French groundwork specialist Louis Menard who was fascinated with structural engineering innovations. Since then, the next generations of talented and resourceful constructors continually developed the brand, technologies, equipment and set new standards. Today we are a global leader specializing in soil enhancement and improvement, both under already existing buildings and those just designed.
Below we present the most important events in the history of Menard company. We specialize in geotechnics and modern soil improvement under buildings using soil replacement or soil mixing methods which both are an effective alternative to traditional piling. We invite you to become acquainted with the history of our company!
