The company was founded in 1952 by Francis Bouygues and since 1989 has been led by his son Martin Bouygues. In 2017 it had over 115,950 employees in 90 countries, generating €32.9 billion in revenue.

History[edit]

The company was founded by Francis Bouygues in 1952.[3] In 1970 Bouygues became listed on the Paris Stock Exchange.[3] In 1985 and 1986 Bouygues acquired road construction groups Screg, Sacer and Colas;[note 1][4] later reorganised as Colas Group.[3][5] In 1987 the company started operating the television channel TF1[3] and in 1988 Bouygues moved into its new head office, the Challenger complex, in Saint-Quentin en Yvelines.[3] In 1996 the company launched Bouygues Télécom[3] and in 2006 the company acquired 23.26% of Alstom.[3]

In 2014, consecutively to Alstom’s cession of its Energy activities to General Electric, Bouygues granted a call option to the French government allowing it to acquire a maximum of 20% of Alstom, currently owned by the group.[6]

Controversies[edit]

Flamanville[edit]

Between 2009 and 2011, Bouygues S.A. was illegally employing workers from Poland and Romania exposing them to inhuman working conditions at the construction site of the Flamanville nuclear power plant in Normandy, France. The company was later condemned for their practices before the court in Cherbourg and was ordered to pay sanctions.[37]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Colas became a direct subsidiary of Bouygues in 2000, after a share swap made Bouygues the direct owner[3]
