General Manager of Egis Romania, Alain de Penfentenyo

"Egis is an international group offering engineering, project structuring and operations services. In engineering, its sectors of activity include transport, urban development, building, industry, water, environment and energy. In roads and airports its offer is enlarged to encompass project structuring, equity investment and operation and mobility services.

Employing 13,000 people, including 8,300 in engineering, the group generated a managed turnover of €936 million in 2015.

Egis is 75% owned by the French “Caisse des Dépôts” and 25% owned by Iosis Partenaires, a “partner” executive and employee shareholding.

In Romania we experience exciting times. A stable government at the center and bullish stock markets promise economic growth for the entire country.

Egis in Romania’s activity mainly covers the transportation, water, environment and industry sectors, on which markets we are already known as quality services provider.

We want to participate in the collective effort, to print in Romania, along with other companies in the industry, a high level of professionalism and quality of work.

We want to have a good market share and increase the pace of building infrastructure in Romania.

It is a difficult area, our activity in Romania represents 1-3% of the Group's business, but we want to develop more.

I feel honoured to be associated with Egis in Romania in this journey of growth."
