Eiffage and OliKrom have signed a strategic agreement

Eiffage, through its subsidiary Eiffage Route, has signed a strategic collaboration agreement with the Bordeaux-based start-up OliKrom, a key player in the field of intelligent pigments. This partnership will enable Eiffage Route and its subsidiary AER, dedicated to road equipment, to access intelligent pigmentation technologies to offer innovative solutions, particularly in the area of horizontal signage, aimed at increasing road safety.


Numerous opportunities are expected to emerge in Eiffage's other areas of activity

Eiffage and OliKrom have been working together for several months within the I-Street programme (Systemic Innovations for Ecological and Energy Transitions in Road Transport Infrastructures), alongside the French Institute of Transport, Planning and Network Sciences and Technologies (Ifsttar) and Total, to respond to the call for "Roads of the Future" projects launched by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (Ademe) and the French General Investment Commission (CGI).

An initial application currently being tested will improve the visibility of road markings, particularly at night and in poor weather conditions, thanks to the use of photo-luminescent pigments.
