COLAS History

The COLAS name was derived from the terms ‘COLd’ and ‘ASphalt’.

In 1925 two English companies Asphalt Cold Mix Ltd merged with a company called COLAS Mix Manufacturing Ltd to form COLAS Product Ltd to supply bitumen emulsions for use on roads in Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Irish Free State.

The COLAS Road Company was founded in France in 1929 by Shell and Société Générale d’Entreprises (SGE). The company originally specialized in the production of bitumen emulsion in addition to road works. Over the years the company’s name changed to COLAS SA International Group which saw expansion from roads to all forms of transportation infrastructure across the world.

With a significant investment in research and development capability COLAS specialises in developing innovative materials and processes to create safe and sustainable transport systems.
