Incorporated in Singapore on 7 July 1993, BBR Holdings (S) Ltd (the “Group”) was established in partnership with the Swiss-based BBR Bureau (later known as BBR Holding Ltd, Switzerland) (“BBR”).
The origin of BBR can be traced back to 1944 when three Swiss engineers, Max Birkenmaier, Antonio Brandestini and Mirko Robin Ros, explored the efficiencies that can be achieved by using pre-tensioned reinforcement for concrete support girders. The main benefit was that pre- or post-tensioned concrete slabs would require less concrete than traditionally reinforced slabs but yet could perform the same structural function. Since then, BBR has developed a complete range of pre-stressing and post-tensioning systems, ground anchors and stay cable anchorages, covering all structural engineering applications. Throughout the decades, BBR has constantly updated itself to meet market requirements and operated successfully on the international scene. BBR and its affiliated companies, joint-ventures and franchisees (collectively referred to as the “BBR Network”) provides state-of-the-art technologies and engineering solutions worldwide in a wide variety of structures, such as bridges, buildings, marine structures, tanks, towers and in all types of geotechnical applications, spanning some 50 countries from around the world.
