AKTOR CONCESSIONS SA is a strong business unit operating in the Management of Projects, Holdings and Concessions in the fields of Infrastructure, Real Estate Development and Energy. It is a leading concession company in Greece, with holdings in the contractors (concessionaires) that have been awarded the largest projects in the country and in their relevant operating companies.
