PORR: Pioneering spirit since 1869.
PORR AG was founded in Vienna in 1869 as an incorporated company named “Allgemeine Österreichische Baugesellschaft” (“Austrian Universal Construction Company”). Since that time, shares in the company have been listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange.
At the beginning of the 20th century, discoveries made by civil engineer Arthur Porr led to a significant breakthrough in concrete construction, and technological leadership was secured in 1927 by a merger with Porr's company to form “Allgemeine Baugesellschaft – A. Porr Aktiengesellschaft” (“Universal Construction Company - A. Porr Incorporated”).
