Budimex has been supporting innovation for years. We know that all, even the best ideas, need support and then implementation, which is the most difficult challenge for young entrepreneurs during the “incubation” period of young companies. At the same time, we pay special attention to the protection of the environment and human health in our operations. This competition combined both of these directions – says Artur Pielech – Member of the Management Board of Budimex SA – President of FB Serwis.
