Abeo was founded in 2010 based on a new concrete technology invented at the Technical University of Denmark. The purpose was to commercialise the two revolutionary and patented concrete technologies 'Super-Light Structures' and 'Pearl-Chain Reinforcement'. The name is inspirered by the latin word abeo, which means "to change" or "to transform".
Based on the original technology, Abeo has developed the Super-Light Concrete Deck (SL-Deck) for construction of multilevel buildings. The deck was launched on the Danish market in 2014 and has since been used in a wide range of building projects within both the residential, commercial and public sector.
In addition, Abeo has developed a new bridge system - Pearl-Chain Bridges - for construction of highway and railway bridges. The solution has been developed with support from the Danish Innovation Fund.
In 2016, the Danish company IBF bought a controlling ownership stake of Abeo. With sales of app. €170 million, IBF is Denmark's largest producer of concrete products. Abeo is run as a separate company of the subsidiary Industri Beton Holding (Industry Concrete Holding), which includes the precast concrete producers Perstrup Beton Industri, ØSB and Byggebjerg Beton.
