A history all made in Italy

Our company was founded in 1926, when SAE (Società Anonima Elettrificazione), began electrification work on the Bolzano – Brennero double-track railway line.

Over nearly a century, acquisitions, mergers and incorporations into major industrial groups in the energy (ABB and Alpiq) and infrastructure and transport (Balfour Beatty) sectors have marked the cornerstones of a long journey. Up to a new milestone in 2018 when our Italian company joined the Colas Group.

The core business and specialist know-how in the electric traction systems market handed down over the years are the hallmark of the company’s identity, which over the years has been continuously enriched and innovated.
