DOPRASTAV, one of the biggest construction companies in Slovakia, reported output of Sk1.6 billion (€39.8 million) in the first quarter of this year, the private news agency SITA reported.

The company's sales reached Sk1.3 billion (€32.4 billion). It generated an added value of Sk217.7 million (€5.4 million) but ended the first quarter Sk55.4 million (€1.4 million) in the red.

Doprastav plans to invest about Sk500 million (€12.4 million) in development, particularly in construction machines, transport facilities, and real estate.

The company also plans to invest an unspecified but reportedly considerable sum in a new information system and information technology.

The investments are meant to increase the quality of construction works.
