Maisonneuve specialises in the design and manufacture of stainless steel and aluminium tankers for the transport of all types of liquids (food, chemicals, hazardous materials, oil and liquefied gas).

It also manufactures water treatment units. It was set up in 1939, in Normandy, the French region with the biggest industrial boiler and sheet metal companies.

Its expertise is based on a knowledge of sheet metal and industrial piping techniques: water jet and plasma cutting, sawing, cutting, rolling, butt welding, bending and welding of stainless steel and aluminium (TIG and MIG). The work carried out requires high-tech know-how, in particular for welding thin sheets.

The company has an active research and development department and works with technological research organisations both in the field of road tankers and water treatment (agreement with the French Petroleum Institute, a partner in a consortium for the Orion European research project and the development of an innovative anaerobic digestion system).


Supplying both civil and military markets, the business is subject to regulations requiring the high qualification of staff and approvals from necessary certification and monitoring organisations.
