SNC-Lavalin's business strategy rests on three strong pillars:
- Maintain world-class technical expertise, in the technical sectors where we have already achieved it and attain the same level of expertise in other sectors.
We have world-class expertise in some of our sectors of activity and are constantly looking to enhance the expertise we have in all our sectors. Over the next 10 years, we would like to increase, perhaps even double, the number of sectors in which we have achieved world-class recognition.
- Develop well-established engineering bases in several key geographic areas.
Our management philosophy is based on distributed leadership, which allows our offices around the world to take the initiative in developing and expanding their operations based on economic developments in their respective regions.
- Continue to invest in infrastructure concessions.
The combination of our technical expertise and our global financing abilities positions us well for future infrastructure concession investment opportunities. We have over 20 years of experience in this field and have built up an excellent track record with our current portfolio of infrastructure concession investments.
