Who are we?


 IGRETEC is a company that operates in various areas of activity: 

  • The economic and territorial development of the Charleroi and South Hainaut region.
  • The management of treatment and flood water evacuation structures for the above geographic area.
  • The missions undertaken by the design office specialising in the design, production and implementation of projects for public or private partners covering very varied fields: industrial or civic buildings, infrastructure, urban planning and the environment.
  • Specific missions in the field of energy for public partners such as motor control, the management of energy participations and a purchasing centre or the 1/3 investment.
  • All these activities are underpinned by support services that deploy financial, economic, administrative and legal management techniques.


An intermunicipal company is an association of communes or municipalities that decide to join forces to run a matter of municipal interest together.

So at least two communes are needed to establish an intermunicipal company, but other partners can also join in: public partners such as the province, the CPAS (social welfare centre), the Walloon Region, another intermunicipal company (this is then known as a pure intermunicipal company), but also private partners (which is the case with mixed intermunicipal companies).

In our case, we are a pure intermunicipal company in the form of a société coopérative à responsabilité limitée (SCRL – cooperative company with limited liability).


First of all, IGRETEC is a company at the service of its partners who expect a strong, diversified and competent structure concerned with the public interest and municipal autonomy. Secondly, IGRETEC is a company made for its staff, as profit is merely a driving force for its own development.  It is the organisation and suitability of in-house skills which, by being formed, adapted and supplemented, lend the company the capacity to act and to develop.

IGRETEC aims to produce the goods and provide the services requested by its clients, aiming to satisfy them in terms of quality, quantity and lead times.
