Group › Egis in Middle East
The Middle East, one of the major geographical poles for our Group.
In 2017 Egis generated nearly €180 million in the Middle East, accounting for 17% of our total revenue.
In the space of a few years, Egis has become a leading name in construction engineering in the Middle East in fields as wide and varied as transport, water, urban development and aviation, whilst also being a trusted locally-established firm with our numerous offices in the United Arab Emirates (Dubai, Abu Dhabi), Saudi Arabia (Riyadh), Qatar (Doha), Manama (Bahrain), Kuwait, Egypt (Cairo), Palestine, Oman (Muscat) and Jordan.
Projacs joins Egis
Thanks to its achievements in the Middle East (almost 20 years the urban transport and railway engineering sector), Egis has reached sufficient maturity to develop its growth further in the region. In July 2015, Projacs, the building project management and works supervision consultancy, joined our Group, thus substantially strengthening our influence all over the region.
The acquisition of Projacs provides a new springboard for the development of our Group, which now has 1,300 employees in the region. Egis and Projacs pursue the same objectives: develop our activity in the Middle East and mutually enhance our service offers.
With Projacs our Group benefits from greater legitimacy in a large number of sectors thanks to more detailed knowledge of local players and to an enhanced service offering combining engineering and project management meeting the highest international standards.
With Qatar getting ready for the 2022 World Cup; Saudi Arabia, which is already preparing for the post-oil era and Dubai, which will be hosting the World Expo in 2020, this region offers excellent prospects. We are also closely monitoring Oman, Iraq and Iran, which are gradually opening up to the global economy and are likely to become promising markets for Egis in the future.
With an objective of continuing the growth of the group in the Middle East and to accelerate synergies created through the integration of Projacs, Christian Laugier has taken on full time leadership for the Middle East Egis Business Unit.
He is based in Dubai, headquarters of the B.U.
