Our History

In 1933, Pierrre Crussard formed the Société d’Aménagement Urbain et Rural, Saur, to design and operate water production plants. In 1934, the firm signed its first water service concession contract with the community of Villejoubert in southwest France. In July 2018, the European EQT fund took over the Saur group, with the Initiative 2023 Strategic Plan marking the beginning of a new era of growth and increased impact.
