Leading Italian Construction Company Builds Infrastructure for the Progress of Poland
The Italian ASTALDI GROUP is one of the leading international construction companies, which specializes in the development of complex and integrated projects in the field of public infrastructure and large-scale civil engineering works. With the establishment of its Polish branch in 2008, ASTALDI brought extraordinary quality and experience in the infrastructure projects of the country. Francesco Paolo Scaglione, General Manager, says, “We are specialized in engineering, we do all kinds of infrastructure, but in Poland we usually participate in tenders that require complex and skilled solutions, such as railway, road and metro tunnels. We perform projects that other companies are not specialized in”.
In Poland, the company employs approximately 2.000 workers, and a vast number of Polish subcontractors, noting an annual turnover of about €300 million – 10% of the global turnover. Francesco Paolo Scaglione points out, “Our main clients are the government and some public companies”. The name ASTALDI is connected to major infrastructure projects in Poland, such as the construction of the second metro line in Warsaw, the modernization of the Warsaw-Lodz railway and the Lodz Fabryczna station, and the extension of 62 kilometres of the National Road 8.
Francesco Paolo Scaglione concludes, “It is essential to have the right people, particularly in engineering. Furthermore, you have to know the history of the country, because it influences its character. Extensive knowledge, wide experience and innovative technology are crucial for our success; it enables us to present the best solutions in order to satisfy clients.”
