Evolution of ABUK
In June 2017, Kadar partnered with American Bridge to form American Bridge UK Limited (ABUK), a civil engineering contractor specialising in the construction and rehabilitation of mid size bridges and other complex structures. The partnership draws off the deep technical strength and brand of American Bridge, together with the financial resources of Kadar.
American Bridge had been operating in the UK since 2009, starting with the award of the Queensferry Crossing Project. This was followed by additional successes in the UK, including a number of specialist bridge rehabilitation and refurbishment projects. Managements desire to expand local operations further in the UK and to focus on mid size new build bridges and complex structures, led to the formation of ABUK. Our leadership team has a clear mandate to invest and grow local operations and is supported by an active Board of Directors, with significant construction experience. ABUK also benefits from its relationship with Continental Engineering Corporation, a leading civil infrastructure construction company in Taiwan.
