Bringing World-Class Standards to Infrastructure Projects
European construction leader Alpine Bau, headquartered in Austria, has been active in Macedonia for 12 years and has completed some of the country’s most high profile construction projects. Alpine Bau BO Macedonia specialises in road construction and has built 108 local roads totalling some 300 km as well as a segment of European Transport Corridor X, among many other initiatives. Its projects have been financed by Macedonia’s government and by international funding organisations.
Gjoko Dinev, Branch Office Manager, says, “We will soon launch many more road projects, including 20 more local roads as a continuation of a project funded by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), and we just signed an additional contract for a €1 million project to build overpasses and road cross sections, among many other initiatives. Overall, we have signed contracts for €40 million in projects in Macedonia for 2012, a big increase from last year’s €18 million.” He adds that Alpine Bau Macedonia will achieve around €30 million in revenues in 2011.
Alpine Bau BO Macedonia is also in the process of building 100 tennis courts and is bidding for a €300 million to €400 million project which is part of the Corridor X initiative. Explaining his company’s success, Gjoko Dinev says, “Alpine Bau BO Macedonia has proven itself to be a good company which can complete high quality projects in a short time.” In addition, in all its projects, Alpine Bau BO Macedonia
can rely on the state of the art expertise and international reach of the Alpine Bau group, which is active in 27 countries.
Massive development initiatives underway
Alpine Bau will continue to play a major role in the massive infrastructure development currently underway and planned for Macedonia. Gjoko Dinev points out, “Macedonia needs to improve and expand its infrastructure, including increasing connections between rural areas and Skopje. We are ready to complete major projects ourselves, including rail infrastructure development, but we will also cooperate with subcontractors. We always meet international standards and our equipment comes from Austria.”
Macedonia offers outstanding potential for foreign investors as the government continues to push forward
its economic development programmes. Gjoko Dinev concludes, “Alpine Bau demonstrates to our friends and colleagues in Europe and all over the world that Macedonia can be a good home for foreign investors, and I believe that foreign investment will continue to grow here in the coming decade.”
