2004 - 2008

FRESH WIND IN OUR SAILS WITH THE NEW OWNER

This period can be summed up by growth, growth and more growth. Every year our company broke revenue records. In 2008, thanks to further acquisitions in - Austria, Poland, Romania, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Serbia - revenues exceeded 300 MEUR for the first time. In 2005, a new subject entered the ownership structure – the Spanish company FCC (FOMENTO DE CONSTRUCCIONES Y CONTRATAS, S.A.) - a stock-exchange listed construction and service group, who became sole shareholder of .A.S.A.  Last but not least, the laying of the first stone of .A.S.A.’s first incinerator plant in Zistersdorf was celebrated in May 2007.
