2020 / CEO's review

A strong year in a challenging operating environment

“The coronavirus pandemic made 2020 a very exceptional year. Many of us were concerned for our own health and the health of our family members and colleagues. The outlook on the market was initially very unclear. I am proud of how quickly we were able to adapt to the new situation and ensure the continuity of our business. We also decided on an additional investment in the digitalisation of construction sites. Our result improved considerably in 2020, and our company is now in excellent shape.“
