Hochtief rules itself out of building Trump’s wall

3 Mar 17 Hochtief has issued a statement saying that neither it nor its US subsidiaries have plans to tender for the wall that US president Donald Trump wants to build along the Mexico border.

The statement was issued by Hochtief following media speculation that it might be interested in building the wall between the USA and Mexico.

It said: “At the business results press conference on February 28, Hochtief did not make any statement on the construction of a wall between the USA and Mexico. We explained that two American subsidiaries of Hochtief operate in this market. These companies decide on a case-by-case basis whether or not they tender for a contract. We emphasise that neither Hochtief nor our US-subsidiaries are pursuing plans to tender for this wall.

“Turner is the No 1 general builder in the US. Flatiron ranks among the most important players in the field of civil works, mainly in the transportation infrastructure. They are working in different market segments.”
