The Group has earned a sterling reputation in its field, thanks to its many years of experience in planning and managing large projects, where technological innovation is assimilated and unique solutions are implemented in diverse and complex projects. Such projects include tunnels, interchanges, bridges, marine engineering, and more.
The Group leads the market in long-term investments in private and public sector mega projects. These include funding capabilities in partnership with leading financial entities, planning, construction, maintenance, and independent operations in projects throughout the concession period. As part of its vision, and because its projects will have an impact for generations to come, the Group has championed the protection of the environment and ecological awareness in all its projects, using water recycling facilities. This construction blends with the landscape, while maintaining a constant dialogue with the natural values interfacing with its work.

Infrastructure – As Israel’s most active infrastructure group, Shapir is involved in most infrastructure projects. This year, a Shapir subsidiary and the Spanish CAF won a tender to establish, operate and maintain Jerusalem’s light rail lines. This is one of the largest train tenders in the history of the State of Israel and is valued at NIS 10 billion. In addition, Shapir, together with Orian, a logistics company, won a tender for the establishment and operation of 3 IDF supply centers, valued at NIS 5.5 billion. The Group is now carrying out extensive work on the new Ashdod port, on the Road 16 project, which is another entrance to Jerusalem from the south, and the project to expand the highway’s “Fast Lane” parking lot to Tel Aviv.
Over time, Shapir has been involved in the paving of thousands of kilometers of roads nationwide, such as the expansion of Highway 6 northward, Highway 531 and its connection to Highway 20, the Makabit Road – Highway 471, the Ra’anana South interchange, the Krayot bypass road and the Krayot interchange, Highway 3, and more. Shapir has also been involved and continues to be involved in the construction of many bridges, such as the Akbara Bridge, the Mivtza Kadesh Bridge, the Gilo Bridge, and more. Shapir has exceptional skills in the excavation of long tunnels, including the railway to Jerusalem (A1) and the tunnels for Highway 6 north. Moreover, Shapir specializes in complex marine projects, including the construction of the new Haifa port, the first stage of Ashdod’s Ha’Yovel Port, the construction of piers in Haifa, the coal unloading pier in Ashkelon, the gas pipeline replacement project and more. Shapir is also a partner in large-scale construction works, such as power stations, airports, railway stations and more.
Industry – Shapir is Israel’s leading company in the production of raw materials for the construction and infrastructure industry, and invests heavily in improving production processes and uncompromising quality control. Shapir owns a cement production plant, concrete plants, asphalt plants, a beam and prefabricated elements plant, as well as has joint ownership of the Packer plant for processing building iron. Raw materials are transported to the construction sites also through the Group’s own moving company, which has hundreds of carriers.
Concessions – The Group initiates and builds large-scale projects in collaboration with the public sector, under the BOT or PFI method, whereby the Group finances, builds, operates and maintains the project for an extended period, after which ownership of the project reverts to the State. Inter alia, Shapir finalized its Highway 6 north work, expanded the Israel Knesset building in Jerusalem, constructed and began operation of the National Parking Lot in Jerusalem, constructed and began operation of the Fast Lane Highway to the entrance to Tel Aviv, constructed and began operation of the Bezalel Dormitories in Jerusalem, as well as many other construction and infrastructure projects. In addition, the Group is a partner in several projects involving the distribution of natural gas in the northern and central regions, as well as the natural gas project at Ben-Gurion Airport, six plants in Alon Tavor, and more.
Residential Real Estate Development – The Group initiates and builds thousands of residential units in various parts of the country. Shapir is currently building and marketing 1,500 residential units in Harish’s B’Tzavta neighborhood, as part of the Ministry of Housing’s “Planning and Building” project. The Group’s entrepreneurial and engineering capabilities ensure that the projects are at the highest standards and provide homeowners with the assurance that they are getting full value for their investment.
Over time, the Group has shown steady growth which is matched by profitability in all areas of operation. This growth is a result of the Group’s long-term strategy, which is based on striving for excellence in every field in which it operates, diversifying the fields of operation, and relying on independent sources to supply the Group’s needs while utilizing the accumulated knowledge, technical and engineering capabilities, and specializing in working with customers while adapting to a dynamic world with changing demands.
Shapir issued its shares to the public and went public at the end of 2014. Its shares are now part of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange’s (“TASE”) Tel Aviv 35 Index. Moreover, its bonds are also traded on the TASE.
