90 Years of Colas History
90 Years of Colas History

The history of the company dates back to the 1920’s, when bitumen emulsion was discovered and enabled to build bituminous roads without having to heat up the binding material. Société Routiére Colas was founded in France on 16 May 1929 following an agreement with Shell oil company. The name Colas derives from cold asphalt. After gradual growth, by the 1950’s, the company had covered 1/5 of the French asphalt production. A decade later Colas made its first appearance in the French stock exchange. The first overseas expansion was in Canada in 1962, and the company kept on expanding to Indonesia, Libya, Iraq, Columbia, Venezuela and the United States. In 1985, Colas joined the Bouygues group. A few years later the company started to expand to Eastern Europe, and Hungary became the first country with a Colas subsidiary in the region.

Safety First

Safety is the number 1 value at Colas. We created the notion of Safety Attitude that represents our commitment in safe and healthy working environment. Safety must guide our activities and way of thinking at all times.

Colas Út

Activities

To complement its nationwide network of eight asphalt mixing facilities, the company operates a bitumen emulsion plant located in Gyöngyös. In recent decades, Colas Út has been active throughout the entire construction sector from large-scale projects – such as the construction of the M30, M4, M25 and M70 motorways – to local road development initiatives and private investments that include the plants of Mercedes-Benz, BMW and LEGO. Since 2022, the activities of Colas Út also cover the installation of engineering structures. When it comes to bridgeworks, our most prominent references include Hungary’s second longest viaduct near Szebény, but we also take pride in the circular bridge on the Hódmezővásárhely bypass of road 47, which was realised in a mere 18 months.
