Recépieux® company was created in 1998 by Dominique Fonfrède following the patenting of several revolutionary concepts which led him to devise the idea of “pré-recépage” of concrete piles.

Gold medal winner of the LÉPINE award, the process has also received numerous awards at the INTERMATS innovation competitions in 2000 and 2003, as well as the INPI gold medal.


After 17 years of unique and exclusive experience, the company has become the uncontested expert in deep pile trimming.


Conceived after years of research and trials with the backing of world-renown academics such as Professor Wygnecki of INP Grenoble, Professor Viggiani of the University of Napoli Federico II, and Professor Cervenka of the Czech Technical University in Prague, the process has allowed the company to gain recognition in the construction world.


Professor Wyniecki

His technique has been adopted overseas by such major businesses as Vinci, Bouygues, Eiffage and other large players such as Total, Arcelor, AIRBUS, EDF, Areva… It has also been recommended by well-known international consultancies (Ingérop, Technip…) and research centres (CETE in Lyon and Nancy).

The head office of Recépieux® is based in the Savoy region of France, in a passive energy building, built from natural materials.
