Fives: over 100 years of industrial expertise at your disposal

With over 100 years working in industrial innovation and maintenance, Fives Nordon is a world leader in industrial piping. Fives Nordon is underpinned by a major internationally renowned group to offer its clients expertise in welding, but also a local service

From design through to assembly, we offer our expertise to build your pipe networks and help you to carry out high added-value projects

Your partner for piping projects

As a high-tech industrial piping specialist, our expertise is split between four major activities: engineering, prefabrication, assembly and maintenance. We have around 40,000 m² of production workshops: piping and pressure vessel workshops dedicated to carbon, aluminum and stainless steel, with equipment including overhead cranes, presses, an induction bending machine and a high-capacity heat treatment furnace.

Backed by this expertise, which ranges from the design of pipe networks and equipment or installations to their maintenance, we are able to support you at each stage to achieve your goals. Thanks to our engineering design office, our workshops dedicated to prefabrication, our extensive network of sites in France and our centuries-old expertise in industry and nuclear energy, we are able to support you better than anyone for all or part of your projects.


We have nearly 40,000 m² of production facilities in various regions, providing a comprehensive network of regions to best serve our customers. Moreover, we are the only pipefitter in France to have such a surface of production workshops.

These piping and boiler workshops are dedicated to carbon, aluminum and stainless steel with specific equipment that we are, for some, the only ones to hold as an induction bender.

Specifically, our workshops are equipped with:

  • 7 welding rods (SAW, MIG, TIG) and 2 welding benches
  • 35 cranes from 500 kg to 20 tons and 9 cranes from 5 to 16 tons
  • 2 secure enclosures (gamma and x radio fire)
