    Backed by workforce of 70,000 men and women working throughout a network of 1,400 profit centers in forty countries on five continents, the Colas Group is a market leader in the construction and maintenance of transport infrastructure. Each year Colas performs more than 100,000 projects worldwide.
    The road sector, which accounts for 80% of revenue, is backed by a wide-scale network of material production and manufacturing businesses.  The Group is also involved in other road-related sectors, making it possible to provide customers with full range of products and services.
    Colas' external growth policy aims to strengthen the Group's foothold outside of France, control its aggregate resources and develop industrial activity. 


  • Roads:
  • Construction and maintenance of road infrastructure (roads, highways, engineering structures, runways, airfield parking zones, platforms for industries, logistics units and ports, city streets, urban development, parking lots, reserved public transport systems such as tramways, recreational areas, sports surfaces, automobile racing circuits, etc.)
  • Industrial production and recycling of construction materials (aggregates, emulsions, binders, asphalt mixes) via a network that includes 685 quarries, 160 emulsion plants, 600 asphalt plants.

  • Other activities: signaling, traffic management; civil engineering; pipes, pipelines; waterproofing; building; railways (trains, tramways); services and concessions.

    Sustainable Development

  • Colas' responsible development policy revolves around three strategic targets:
  • Renewing and developing our human resources based on diversity (in 2009, 5,800 new employees hired, 4% of payroll invested in training, action in favor of improving the male/female workplace balance, individuals with difficulties, senior citizens, disabled persons)
  • Societal acceptation of our industrial sites (57% of material production revenue is certified and 32% have instigated a structure to encourage dialogue with neighboring residents in 2009)
  • Ethics (Ethics Code)

    as well as five other targets:
  • safety (in 2009, 27% of workforce trained in workplace first aid)
  • supporting good corporate citizenship in less-developed countries
  • saving energy and reducing greenhouse gases (warm mixes, photovoltaic roofing)
  • recycling (9% Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement or RAP in 2009)
  • controlling chemical risks.
