Our history

A French engineer's invention in 1963 developed a new composite material using earth as a raw material, which spawned the development of a company with offices across the five continents in just a few decades. Easy-to-use Reinforced Earth® technology quickly took hold as an ideal reinforced backfill solution in a number of applications, especially in the highways sector. However, the technology's inventor and Terre Armée's founder, Henri Vidal, had to draw on all his perseverance and charisma to advance his revolutionary idea to become an epic technological, human and entrepreneurial breakthrough.
