Our Name


Our Name


The Fresnel Companies, LLC

Centuries before Internet, smart phone or social media, the global economy was joined together through maritime trade across a vast network of coastal cities.  An important technological innovation of that age was the uniquely designed Fresnel lens, used in lighthouses around the world, as Fresnel’s light guided ships safely to shore.  Named for French physicist Augustin Fresnel, this far-reaching scientific breakthrough in light-wave emission design allowed beacons of light to travel farther across the sea than ever thought possible.  This advancement would change trade and the experience of point-to-point travel for generations.

We adopted Fresnel as the name for our collective companies and the lighthouse as a symbol of our approach to doing business.

Each Fresnel company is supported by innovative, often proprietary technologies, designed by true thought leaders within each industry we serve.  Although we take pride in the technologies we design and enhance, our value system is built around the projects we manage and the care and concern we have for our customers and other stakeholders we serve.
