Learn more about us.
EFINOR group is a combination of 3 business units: Engineering – Manufacturing – and Support, all involved in metal working and design. This organization gives to the group a great opportunity to provide a global service. Our Know-how, turnkey, is due to the consistency of our teams inside EFINOR but also due to the proximity of our workshops and design offices all over France and UK.
EFINOR, your unique contact for your turnkey projects.
Engineering, Manufacturing and Support.
Engineering is all about solving problems. EFINOR takes its work to another level:
- Developing technological gateways between different trades and business sectors to help find solutions for our clients,
- Ensuring flexibility and reactivity thanks to the perfectly-balanced profiles of our teams (from drafter to experts) who can easily be detached/seconded to our clients’ facilities,
- Proposing innovative solutions through a critical approach to project work – our companies enable us to provide a custom-built solution meeting the unique needs of each project.

Our strong points:
- the solutions and resources offered by the different trades in our group. We possess the skills that also allow us to implement our recommendations.
- the experience within our teams, their high level of qualification adapted to the requirements of the different market sectors we work in – the nuclear, naval, aeronautical and petrochemical industries … (civil and military programs)
- our multi-skilled technicians who are capable of delivering turn-key maintenance services (from intellectual services to functional interventions).
- Drafting procedures for assembly and maintenance, operating instructions
- Managing maintenance schedules
- Project management
- Business and technical strategy oversight

A desire to exploit the virtues of metal has incited EFINOR to develop new skills. From pre-project studies to on-site support in all our fields of expertise, we take a global approach to projects.
- Our offer is rich with the inherent culture of different industrial sectors. We open a whole horizon of solutions that are not inherently obvious, even with a perfect knowledge of the market sector.
- We integrate the chain of values into our work. A single point of contact limits risks and cost, providing the responsiveness and professional dynamism necessary to manage project quality and timelines.
- Total control means peace of mind for the project leader.
EFINOR has today reached a size that gives it the credibility necessary to create partnerships, not only with its clients but also its service providers, and to fully encompass its role as lead contractor.
Our sectors of activity have one thing in common: the high level of requirements imposed by our clients’ needs.
We have an in-depth knowledge of international standards and out teams are well aware of the evolving nature of the environment in which they work, one of the specific aspects of their trade.
Our specialists draft operating instructions on a daily basis, in respect of regulations and in a consistent manner, supported by close quality control.
We consider that risks related to industrial health and safety (IHS) must be anticipated and we work towards their prevention – a commitment that works to the advantage of our personnel, our partners, our suppliers and our clients.
The Health and Safety department as well as company management all work towards ensuring improvements are made in this domain, not only through employee awareness and training on risk control, but also by sharing experience and measuring our performance in terms of industrial health and safety.
The common factor developed over recent years regarding our organizational and industrial methods as well as competitiveness is that of satisfying the needs of our clients through a continuous improvement approach.
By implementing a quality management approach, we:
- integrate our clients’ needs,
- formalize procedures and operating instructions,
- improve our responsiveness in processing deviations,
- manage each separate project using a pre-defined strategy,
We improve productivity by making continuous improvement the mainstay of our company strategy.
This approach enables each of us to find our place within the organization and to better understand the consequences of our work.
