AB KAUNO TILTAI – WHAT IS IT?

The growth of the company has led to an expansion of its portfolio of activities. Currently it includes not only motorway and road construction projects, but also a number of others, e.g. the construction of tunnels, railways, airports, water ports, erection of engiineering and energy networks, production of building materials, and installation of waste facility sites.

In any one year the company implements up to 300 projects of different size and complexity, starting with the very smallest and finishing with the largest transport infrastructure faci

ilities in Lithuania. To ensure quality control, Kauno Tiltai has its own certified laboratory whose test results are recognised throughout the EU.

Over 1,000 employees are employed in the company, of which 200 are highly qualified transport infrastructure construction engineers.

1.1. Main purposes of the company

“AB“ Kauno Tiltai building bridges between science and business

In the global economy of knowledge and innovations our consumer habits, everyday routine, needs, and even values rapidly change. The role of business changes as well. The leading companies today can no longer limit their operations to the implementation of direct functions. Competition has taken business from the national to the international arena. The main focus of today’s competitive marketplace is no longer raw materials or other physical resources. People and their ideaas have become the most valuable business capital.

The vision of the “Akademija@Kauno Tiltai” program was borne through understanding that progress and innovations are created where business and science unite their ideological and human potential for a common purpose. Kauno Tiltai AB as the leader on the Lithuania market is often faced with the need to attract the best young talents, create stimulating working conditions, and ensure continuous qualification improvement of employees. Raising future company employees and offering students the opportunity to u

use the best practical knowledge are some of the main goals of “Akademija@Kauno Tiltai”, but there are more. “Akademija@Kauno Tiltai” will integrate its current scientific projects and new initiatives into one platform, which together with educational and scientific institutions will help find future engineering solutions. We hope that this will open doors for new modernisation opportunities for the infrastructure sector in Lithuania. We also believe that “Akademija@Kauno Tiltai” will demonstrate that engineering sciences are an interesting and creative choice that promises a rewarding career for young people willing to create their future.

1.2. The service of the Kaunas bridge company

Established with the purpose to rebuild roads after the World War II, the Company has constructed and reconstructed many roads and built over 100 bridges and viaducts in Lithuania. Over six decades of its operation Kauno tiltai developed exceptional technical skills and know how that today allows the Company to carry out wide range of activities.  

1.3 AB „Kaunas tiltai“ history

A Brief Outline of Six Decades

1949–1960: the start of company’s activities

To deal with the aftermath of the war the Road Building District No. 1 (Kelių statybos rajonas Nr. 1) was established in the year 1949. This was the first building company under the supervision of the Ministry of Transport and Comm

munications of Lithuania. The company had 10 pieces of road building machinery and 160 workers. In 1956, the company built its first bridge – a bridge across the Neris River in Jonava town.

1961–1970: the first kilometres of highways

Development of a production facility started on an area of 13.7 hectares in Palemonas. This allowed the company to undertake greater volume of works – in 1964 the Kaunas Northern bypass, one of the main Kaunas roads, was built; this was followed in 1965–1970 by the construction of the 100-km Vilnius-Kaunas highway. In 1966, the company changed its name and became the First Bridge Building Authority of Kaunas (Kauno pirmoji tiltų statybos valdyba).

1971–1990: more bypasses

In the 1980s the company spent seven years with its partners on the construction of the 200-km Kaunas-Klaipėda highway. In 1987, construction of the Kaunas Western bypass was started. In 1990, the company’s name was once again changed – this time it became the Kaunas State Bridge Building Company (Kauno valstybinė tiltų statybos įmonė).

2003: the first projects abroad and privatisation of the company

By 2003, construction of the Kaunas Western bypass was finished. In 2007, the company certified its Environmental Management System according to the ISO 14001 standard and its Occupational Health and Safety Management System according to the OHSAS 18001 standard. By expanding its activities the company acquired such

h road building companies as Taurakelis, Kėdainių automobilių keliai and Kelda in Lithuania and PDM Bialystok as well as PEUiM in Poland. The company’s activity portfolio was supplemented with the first works in the field of the construction of railway infrastructure: the first project implemented – reconstruction of railway structures on the transport corridor IXB (Vilnius-Klaipėda).

In 2007, the works in the field of tunnel construction and reconstruction were started – Kaunas railway tunnel was reconstructed. In addition, the company commenced its business in the field of Street lighting by installing lighting on the certain sections of Vilnius-Klaipėda highway. In 2008, when the Tiltra Group was established, the infrastructure construction company operating in Poland and Lithuania, Kauno tiltai AB became a part of it.

In 2009, the management of the company was reorganised. Vilnius bridges, was reconstructed. In 2010, the company got involved into another new type of activities – building of sea ports and their infrastructure. The end of 2010 saw the commencement of the second stage of the Jakai roundabout reconstruction.

2011-2013: the first projects in Latvia and growing railway construction activity

After the Tiltra Group of company’s merger with one of the largest Polish railway infrastructure construction companies Trakcja Polska in 2011, a new infrastructure construction group of companies Trakcja was formed. On 19 April 2011 Kauno Tiltai became a part of this group of companies.In 2011, the company won the biggest in its history project – Construction of the Second Track in Kyviškės – Valčiūnai section of Vilnius Bypass on the Corridor IXB (railway construction). In 2012, the company finished reconstructions of Klaipėda Jakai roundabout (2nd stage) and a railway section Radviliškis- Pagėgiai- state border (1st stage) on the Corridor IA. In 2012, the company started to work in the Latvian market. During 2013 the company strengthened its positions in the Eastern and Central Latvia and established a representative office of Kauno Tiltai in neighbouring country. The year 2013 distinguished for exclusive projects the company is proud of. The most important of them – Constructions of the link between IXB Transport Corridor (Žirniai str.) and Vilnius International Airport. This project is unique in a sense that the company implemented it during six months and was able to finish the works even three months sooner. The project earned the highest award in the Product of the Year 2013 contest annually held by the Lithuanian Confederation of Industrialists. Out of five main contractors that construct the Rail Baltica line, the value of works undertaken by the company is the biggest and totals LTL 378 million (including VAT).

CONCLUSIONS

Kauno Tiltai has been part of „Trakcja PRKil S.A.”, a group of infrastructure and energy construction companies operating in Poland and Lithuania, since 19 April 2011. The main „Trakcja PRKil S.A.” shareholder – Comsa Corporación is the eighth largest construction company in Spain and the second largest in the Spanish railway infrastructure sector. With over 100 years experience the group mostly operates in the fields of infrastructure, construction, engineering systems, environmental protection, transport and logistics, concession and renewable energy sources

The company provides services compliant with the requirements of the strictest standards and produces materials whose high quality is acknowledged across the European Union.

Occupational health and safety is one of the main priorities in Kauno Tiltai AB. The Occupational Health and Safety Management Standard OHSAS 18001 has been implemented in the company since 2007; the implementation of the requirements and set goals is facilitated by the Integrated Management System.

In implementing projects on the construction of transport infrastructure the company protects and upholds its environment and continually seeks to reduce the negative impact made on it. Since 2007 the Environmental Protection Management Standard ISO 14001 has been implemented in the company; the implementation of the requirements and set goals is facilitated by the Integrated Management System.

In this review I have fully analyzed the structure of this leading fertilizer manufacturer, excluded its main production branches and reviewed its social awareness aspects, which were likely cruicial for their business success.
