Following the acquisition of Lahmeyer Group in 2014, Tractebel has now a strong presence in Germany. Founded in 1890 in Frankfurt am Main, Lahmeyer became a leading position in the international engineering market and a reference for experience, quality and competence.
Tractebel is well represented in the country by:
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. Today Lahmeyer group companies use the brand Tractebel. In January 2019 Lahmeyer International changed the company name into Tractebel Engineering GmbH and in March 2019 Lahmeyer Hydroprojekt GmbH changed the company name into Tractebel Hydroprojekt GmbH.
