Ferrovial Agroman loses historic name to become Ferrovial Construction

26 May 2020 | By GCR Staff | 0 Comments

Ferrovial Agroman, the construction subsidiary of Spanish contractor Ferrovial, has rebranded to “Ferrovial Construction”, saying in a press release that the name change represents a “more international corporate name in alignment with the rest of the Ferrovial Group”.

Ferrovial bought the rival Spanish firm Agroman in June 1995 from Spanish bank Banesto.

Agroman was founded in 1927 and has worked on classic Spanish buildings including the Madrid Hippodrome, and the Torre de Madrid.

Since the merger was completed in 1999, Ferrovial Agroman worked on projects such as Heathrow Airport’s second terminal, Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum (pictured), and Barajas Airport’s fourth terminal.

Ignacio Gastón, Ferrovial Construction’s chief executive, said: “It has been arduous for us to take this decision since a large part of our history has been associated with the Agroman name but it seemed to be the most appropriate time to update the brand, seeking both a better penetration into international markets and a further alignment with Ferrovial, our group’s brand.”
