- The company becomes a sponsor of the "Juan Antonio Fernandez del Campo International Road Innovation Award"
Madrid, November 8, 2018. Lantania has formalized its integration into the Spanish Road Association (AEC), an entity with which it shares its commitment to sustainability and the quality of infrastructures.
The infrastructure group is the result of the acquisition of the construction, water and energy business units of Isolux Corsán by a team of former company executives. It has a portfolio of work in progress of over 200 million euros, comprising 26 projects, and assets close to 70 million euros.
With its integration into the Spanish Road Association, the firm can benefit from the synergies that are generated within the entity, as well as the exchange of experiences and knowledge among its members. Likewise, Lantania will contribute to the enrichment of all the partners thanks to its technical background and innovative business practices.
Lantania has a staff with an average experience of 22 years, and a machinery park consisting of more than 1,200 references. The company is organized around three main business areas: infrastructure, water and environment and energy.
Specifically, in the field of road infrastructure and thanks to the means and the technical solvency provided by the business units acquired, the group has participated in the execution of large projects, with the construction of more than 500 kilometers of roads. As an example of projects under development, we could highlight the Lucena variant (Córdoba, Spain) and the bridge over the Genil river in Huétor-Tájar (Granada, Spain).
On the other hand, Lantania has replaced Isolux in the sponsorship of the “International Award for Innovation in Roads Juan Antonio Fernandez del Campo”, a contest born in 2005 whose objective is to promote the development of road technology throughout the world by innovation and research in Spanish.
Apart from Lantania, 10 new entities or individual professionals have made a bet in 2018 to defend and promote the road infrastructures represented by the AEC.
The new partners include companies such as T-System, Simumak or Gomavial, and entities such as Banco Caminos, Diputación de Lleida or the Spanish Institute of Cement and its Applications (IECA).
The AEC has currently a total of 300 members, including large and medium-sized companies, public administrations, business organizations, university and research centers, financial institutions, professional associations and professional staff.

And all this in the interurban as in the urban area, under the principles of public service and the necessary quality of it.
