Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that it has signed an agreement to divest 50 percent of shares in its Spanish operations, Fluor S.A., to Sacyr Industrial S.L.U., a leading multinational Spanish construction company.

SacyrFluor will provide project management, engineering, procurement, construction management and self-perform construction services for the energy and chemicals industry in Spain, Southern Europe, North Africa and certain countries in South America.
“Creating this new company supports Fluor’s global strategy to provide clients with truly integrated business solutions for their project needs,” said David Seaton, Fluor’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Combining Fluor’s project management, engineering and procurement services with Sacyr’s construction capabilities will provide our clients with capital efficiencies through a simplified project structure and improved opportunities for cost savings.”
