Historical Background

Abertis was originally founded in 1967 under the name Autopistas Concesionaria Espanola SA ( Acesa ); after the purchase of Iberpistas merged Acesa in April 2003 with Aurea Concesiones de Infraestructuras ( Aumar ) and named henceforth Abertis.

The 2006 proposed acquisition of the Italian Autostrade was averted by the shareholders of the Italian motorway operator.
