In 2017, the company's international activity accounted for 44% of the total, with unequal distribution between sectors. The civil engineering area continues to concentrate over 90% of its production abroad. The consultancy area ended a record year for production abroad at 32%, thanks to SAP implementations in the Latin American public sector and in utilities.
As regards the geographical distribution, Latin America continues to be a significant international source, where Ayesa is carrying out relevant projects in the area of urban transport, such as the supervision of the Mexico airport and the Panama and Quito metro systems. Nonetheless, the drivers of growth are currently focussed on the Middle East, India and the rest of Asia.
Finally, the company's progress has also been reflected in its workforce, which comprises 3,800 technicians. The overall number of jobs created by the group exceeds 4,500 professionals.
"The Spanish market is showing certain signs of recovery, which is a magnificent indicator that will help us to strengthen our teams; essential in a company that wants to continue being a reference in knowledge and in technical and technological solutions", Manzanares stated.
