Family - Tradition - Performance

Our story of a general construction company starts at the end of the 19th century. Today, Félix Giorgetti is still owned and run by the family and is one of Luxembourg’s leading names in the construction and property industry.
 

How it all began

 

1890 - 1900

A group of young people, all from the same village of Brissago (in Italy’s Varese province), left their country to work in Luxembourg, where they started out as labourers in the building industry. Among this group were Achille Giorgetti and his two brothers Francesco and Eustache Giorgetti.
Shortly after arriving, Achille and Francesco Giorgetti founded the first “Giorgetti” building company, which operated primarily in the south of the country.

1901

Following the death of Francesco Giorgetti, Achille Giorgetti took over the business on his own.

1911

Eustache Giorgetti joined Achille’s business. He led the construction of several prestigious buildings in the country, including the head office of Arbed (now Arcelor - Mittal) in Luxembourg City.

1937

Eustache Giorgetti decided to work for himself and created his own construction business in Bettembourg.
 
 

Consolidation

 
 

1946

After the turmoil of the Second World War, Eustache Giorgetti re-launched his activities, this time with his two sons, Félix and Paul, on board.
Eustache Giorgetti & Sons, S.E.N.C. played an active part in rebuilding the country.

1957

Eustache Giorgetti stepped down from the helm of his business and his two sons became the company’s directors.

1968

Following the death of Paul Giorgetti, the business was managed solely by Félix Giorgetti.

1979

Eustache Giorgetti & Sons, S.E.N.C. was dissolved. All of the business’ assets were taken over by Félix Giorgetti and his wife Jeanny Giorgetti-Theisen. They continued to operate their construction business under the name of “Entreprise Félix Giorgetti” (“Félix Giorgetti Company”).
 
 

Expansion

1986

Paul and Marc Giorgetti, Félix’s two sons, joined the business.

1988

Paul and Marc Giorgetti founded Skyliners, which specialised in the hire and sale of tower cranes.
This company has since become one of the biggest subsidiaries of the Félix Giorgetti group and ranks top of its sector in the Greater Region of Luxembourg.

1991

The solely owned Entreprise Félix Giorgetti changed its name and legal form. It became a capital-based company under the name of “Félix Giorgetti SARL - General construction company”. This company now constitutes the hub of all of our operational activities.
 
Acquired a stake in the public limited company Recyma, which focuses on prospecting, developing, building and operating facilities for recycling inert materials generated by construction sites.

1992

The business moved into its new administrative building in Cloche d’Or, Luxembourg, sparking a fresh sense of momentum. Not only was it installed in its new premises, the business had just launched itself as a developer and investor for administrative premises. This was a decisive step in terms of future growth for the entire group.

1993

The Giorgetti-Theisens brought their two sons, Paul and Marc, into the construction company.
