Dynamic Construction Firm Applies Highest International Standards
Alpine Holding, Austria’s second largest private construction firm, has a 46 year history of rapid development in the construction sector worldwide and has been active in Romania since 1998. Ionel Giuglea, General Director, explains, “Alpine Romania has the same structure as the parent company in Austria, and our building management and high quality concepts are also the same as those of Alpine BAU GmbH.”
In 1999, Alpine Romania became the main shareholder of Romanian firms Granitul SA Bucharest and SCAEP Giurgiu Harbour SA, providing Alpine Romania with reliable supplies of raw materials for its local construction projects. In 2002, Alpine Romania reached another major milestone when it was certified
for the SR EN ISO 9001:2001 Management Quality System, and in 2007 the company implemented an internationally and nationally certified Integrated Management System.
State of the art asphalt plant and machineries (construction equipment)
Alpine Romania invests in the latest technologies more than €25 million to ensure the highest quality performance, and opened a €5 million state of the art asphalt mixing plant near Bucharest in 2006. Ionel Giuglea says, “All the processes in the plant are controlled by electronic systems, guaranteeing the highest quality. Alpine Romania also has its own certified testing lab equipped with latest generation equipment to help maintain the exceptional standards for which Alpine is known in Romania and throughout the world.”
Although Alpine Romania is a young company, it has been completing major, very complex construction projects (more than €0.5 billion) since its beginnings. In 2011 Alpine Romania won the €100 million tender to design and build section two of the Nadlac Arad motorway, which includes a link to the Arad bypass. This project, which is set to be finished by the end of 2012, will streamline connections to the Hungarian border.
Alpine Romania stands out from other construction firms in Romania through its highly skilled and motivated team, commitment to delivering projects as promised, advanced technologies and quality controls, support for local community service projects, and strong backing from the parent company in Austria. Ionel Giuglea points out, “Alpine Romania has a good relationship with its clients (both public and private) and is one of the most promising companies in the global Alpine group thanks to the many opportunities here in Romania. We have earned our clients’ trust, and we will continue to invest back into the company because Alpine has made a strong, long term commitment to the Romanian construction market and to the people of Romania.”
