OKEENEA is the French leading

company on the accessibility market.


For more than 25 years, we have been developing architectural access solutions for buildings and streets. Every day, we rethink today’s cities to transform them in smart cities accessible to everyone.

 “Cities invested a lot of money in the physical accessibility. But if you just install that equipment you don’t know where you are and where to go. You must bring safe roads but also information to people. We have the capacity today to mix physical installation and digital solutions to bring real accessibility. It’s vital for 15% of the population, it’s very important for 40% of the population and it’s useful for 100% of the population.”

“Every day, we rethink today’s cities to transform them in smart cities accessible to everyone.”
