Vinci Technologies SA
Vinci’s origins began with the manufacturing of highly specialized laboratory and field instruments. Throughout this history, Vinci has continuously invested heavily into R&D, supporting the evolution of our core client industries while adapting and developing new instruments to address emerging challenges - carbon footprint, environment, and global awareness. Today, Vinci has evolved and transferred our legacy for cutting edge expertise and technology to provide laboratory instruments and sensors across all high tech industries- chemicals, health, civil engineering, and materials. For example, in 2008, Vinci found an opportunity to fill the needs of the growing Ultra High Vacuum sector by acquiring the French leader, MECA2000

- A global organization to support worldwide customers
Worldwide sales are carried out directly from France or via a network of local representatives (agents, distributors).
Vinci Technologies’ support to customers cannot stop after sales. We have set up an international team of service engineers based at Vinci headquarters in France and at our partners’ facilities all over the world, including America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Vinci Technologies was established in the 1960's by IFP Energies Nouvelles.
IFP Energies nouvelles has long been using a variety of technology transfer routes in order to find industrial outlets for its R&D work. One of the original aspects of this approach is its involvement in the R&D projects not only of industrial groups, but also of SMEs and start-up companies.
Today, Vinci Technologies has become an independent company, owned by the staff and private equities.
Over the last decade, we expanded our in-house R&D by investing about 10% of the company's revenue each year. This is the root of the dramatic increase of our product range, while we still market a few products under IFP Energies Nouvelles licences.
Our continued growth has also been sustained by acquisition and merge of smaller companies.
IFP Energies nouvelles is a public-sector research, industrial innovation and training center active in the fields of energy, transport and the environment. Its mission is to provide public players and industry with efficient, economical, clean and sustainable technologies to take up the challenges facing society in terms of climate change, energy diversification and water resource management.
