Mota-Engil Opens Office in Chile, Studies Uruguay, Sinergia Says

Mota-Engil SGPS SA (EGL), Portugal’s biggest construction company, is in the process of opening an office in Chile and may also seek to expand to Uruguay, the company’s Sinergia magazine reported, citing a board member.

By expanding to Chile, Mota-Engil will be able to accompany some of its mining clients with operations in Peru, Carlos Mota Santos said, according to the online version of Sinergia.

Mota-Engil may set up a company in Uruguay if it wins building contracts in that South American country, he said.
