In 2015, the Group ranked 13th in the table of Brazilian engineering firms (according to the list published by the Brazilian journal O Empreteiro in July). Egis aims to reach the top 10 by continuing to develop its service ranges in the fields of roads, urban transport, rail transport and aviation. It also aims to extend its Brazilian activities to include buildings, energy, wastewater treatment and urban mobility. Infrastructure development and modernisation are still high priorities in this country which spans some 8.5 million sq.km and boasts a population of 200 million.
At the end of 2015, our three Brazilian engineering ﬁrms Egis Lenc (roads, environment and geotechnical engineering), Egis Engenharia e Consultoria (railway and urban transport) and Egis Aeroservice (airport engineering and consulting) came together to pool their know-how and expertise within a single Egis entity. This new, clearer organisation of the Brazil pole will enables us not only to improve our competitiveness but also reinforce cohesion and synergies between all our employees in order to keep developing innovative solutions for our clients.
