Employee involvement in companies under the European Company Statute (ECS): Strabag SE
Strabag is a multinational building and construction company. It operates in three areas: building construction and civil engineering; road construction; and tunnelling and services, in more than 500 locations worldwide. In 2009, Strabag SE had 75,500 employees, of which more than 80% worked in Europe. The Strabag SE was officially registered in the company register of Klagenfurt in Austria on 12 October 2004 as one of the first European Companies and was the first one based in Austria. However, the conversion of the Strabag AG Holding into a SE only came into force in May 2006 due to legal problems and procedures.
