Background Information

CINTEC Background

CINTEC in 1986 acquired the rights to the Cintec Anchoring System which had originally been developed in Germany. Since then it has developed rapidly to meet the diverse requirements of the civil engineering industry in the field of strengthening and preservation. Headquartered in the United States in Washington, DC, the Company now has extensive international links with independant companies based in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, India and Australia.

Ranging from sophisticated wall ties to solid bar anchors, the CINTEC System can be adapted to suit a myriad of applications. Internationally CINTEC has dealt with such high profile projects as the Canadian Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, the Bank of Montreal in Quebec, the Brandenburg Tower and Cathedral in Germany as well as the Empire State Building in New York. The longest anchors, to date, are thirty-two metres long (105 ft) and installed in Christ Church Cathedral in Newcastle, Australia, which had suffered major damage due to an earthquake.

The principal activity of the company is the design and manufacture of the “CINTEC” Micro Concrete and Lime Grout Anchoring and Reinforcing System.
