Fives Group is a French industrial engineering group founded in 1812, originally named Fives-Lille, after the district in Lille where it was established. The company began as a foundry and engineering workshop, producing machinery and equipment for various industries. Over its more than 200-year history, Fives has evolved significantly, adapting to changing markets and technological advancements.

Founded in 1812, Fives started as a small engineering workshop. The company quickly grew, contributing to significant infrastructure projects, including the construction of railways and steam engines.

Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, Fives diversified its operations, venturing into sectors such as metallurgy, cement, and sugar production machinery. The company played a crucial role in the industrialization of France and other parts of the world.

After World War II, Fives continued to expand its portfolio, focusing on innovation and technology. The company developed expertise in automation and robotics, aligning with the growing demand for advanced industrial solutions.

In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, Fives strategically acquired several companies to strengthen its market position and technological capabilities. Notable acquisitions include North American Construction Services, Inc. (NACS) and Mag Americas, which enhanced Fives’ presence in the automotive and aerospace industries.

Today, Fives operates globally, serving diverse industries such as steel, aluminum, automotive, aerospace, cement, energy, logistics, and glass. The company’s commitment to innovation is evident in its investment in research and development, focusing on sustainable and energy-efficient technologies.
