CFE (Belgium)

CFE is a multidisciplinary company, active in civil engineering, construction, real estate, PPP-concessions, multitechnical and marine engineering sectors. The group is located all over the world.

The CFE group forms a coherent whole in which each division is supported by the others. The concessions and property development divisions award work to the general contracting companies, which in turn are potential customers of the companies making up the multitechnics division, which maintain the structures built under public private partnership contracts. Similarly, many of DEME's business lines tie in with the civil engineering activities carried out by CFE group companies.

CFE's leading historical trade is construction and the next is dredging and marine engineering. CFE holds 50% of DEME's capital, one of the worldwide leaders in this sector. The CFE group is listed in Euronext Brussels, and Vinci SA holds 47% of the capital.
