History of the Company
Our family-owned business has always kept the energy and values we started with yet learned to adapt and develop our potential along the way.
July 2001: SCIRPE is founded at Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon (Rhône).
SCIRPE was founded to address a specific wastewater treatment market with an emergent technology—constructed wetland reedbeds—appropriately geared to the low-investment low-maintenance needs of rural-community local government.
November 2011: Creation of a custom production facility, sited at Domsure (Ain).
This purpose-dedicated facility crafts made-to-measure custom-built hydrosystem hardware for our wastewater treatment plants, bringing the company unique know-how and freeing us from any dependence on subcontractorship.
February 2012: An outreach agency opens at Cesson-Sévigné (Ille-et-Vilaine).
Our R&D efforts pay off as SCIRPE now provisions wastewater engineering solutions using vegetated wetland systems for removing nitrates and phosphates load. These solutions are especially appropriately geared to controlling effluent discharges in Brittany’s many sensitive watersheds.
April 2013: Creation of the SCIRPE Group
The need to better differentiate and run each entity independently prompted a move to create the SCIRPE Group articulating 3 new structures: SCIRPE Centre Est, SCIRPE Grand Ouest and SCIRPE Atelier.
October 2014: Creation of the federation for constructed wetlands, acronymed FEVE
SCIRPE is founder member of the FEVE that federates all businesses that boast specific know-how and top-flight references in green constructed wetland wastewater treatment solutions.
