80+ years

(1943 - 2017)
From family forge to international recognition

In the bucolic setting ofOcquier, Ateliers Roger Poncin laid the foundations of our heritage, an epic that began in the shadow of a 9th-century medieval church. At the end of the Second World War, our focus on steel construction symbolized a new era of reconstruction andinnovation.

Every bridge and every structure we’ve built reflects our unwavering commitment to quality and customer care, values handed down through three generations.

Over the decades, our reputation for excellence has opened doors to prestigious projects, solidifying our position as a leader in the field.

From the 1970s onwards, exports became an integral part of our identity, putting the Belgian metal seal on regions such as the Middle East andAfrica, testifying to an ambition without borders.
