A groundbreaking partnership with Slovakia

PORR is one of the leading specialists for major construction projects in Slovakia, especially in the infrastructure sector. A number of PORR projects, over recent years, have been attracting attention beyond Slovakia’s borders.

The PORR Group began life in the old imperial city of Vienna in 1869, when the company was formed by leading industrialists to reshape Vienna’s Ringstrasse.

Today, it is one of the largest construction companies in Austria and one of the market leaders in Europe, with 10,700 employees and a production capacity in 2012 of around 2.9 billion euros. It covers all areas of construction, ranging from residential to complex infrastructure projects.

The Eurovea International Trade Centre, completed in 2009, lies between the Old Town and the Danube in Bratislava - a completely new district comprising a shopping centre, luxury apartments, offices, a 5-star hotel and entertainment facilities.

PORR built the new headquarters of Slovenska Sporitelna, the savings bank that, founded in 1825, was the first ever banking institution in Slovakia. With 2.5 million customers and 295 branches, it is the largest bank in Slovakia today.

Since 2001, it has been a member of Erste Group, itself established in 1819 as the first Austrian savings bank
Another PORR project, the "Trencianska Tepla - Belusa" section of the railway system between Bratislava and Zilina, due to be finished in 2014, will provide updated infrastructure to help speed people on their way around the country.

PORR supports Slovakia’s economic development through a wide range of major construction projects. PORR and Slovakia have developed a strong, working partnership that benefits both the state and the company in equal measure.
