In addition to materials and systems, TenCate Geosynthetics offers technical support to civil engineers, construction supervisors and building contractors. The market group has a global network of sales offices. Certainly in the civil works segment, a local presence is necessary. These people know the local legislation and regulations, have direct contact with local authorities, distributors and specifiers (consultants, architects) in the preparation of projects and can offer the required technical support at short notice.
