Following the acquisition of Lahmeyer Group in 2014, Tractebel has now a strong presence in Germany. Founded in 1890 in Frankfurt am Main, Lahmeyer is today a leading international engineering group and a reference for experience, quality and competence.
Tractebel is well represented in the country by Lahmeyer International, a worldwide renowned engineering company for the Energy Sector; Lahmeyer Hydroprojekt, specialised in the field of hydraulic engineering; GKW Consult, one of the top international independent consultants for environmental engineering; and Lahmeyer Deutschland, a key player in the fields of building construction, industrial construction, transportation infrastructure, and energy infrastructure.
In 1890, the company W. Lahmeyer & Co was founded in Frankfurt am Main by Wilhelm Lahmeyer, an entrepreneur with great vision for the capabilities in the emerging electrical industry. His inventions and functional discoveries marked the way of this triumphal success.
The Engineering Department of the former Lahmeyer AG became the nucleus of Lahmeyer International when the firm was established in 1966 as a company of engineering consultants.
Today, engineers, natural scientists and economic experts from over 30 disciplines are working together using the state-of- the-art technologies in the same tradition of those pioneers. Clients throughout the world value our future-oriented expertise as well as our extensive experience in projects, especially where challenges with complex requirements are required.
Since December 2014, the Lahmeyer Group belongs to Tractebel.
