A civil engineering and construction company, which operates several plants for construction materials.

The company has built housing projects and infrastructure in Ma’aleh Adumim, Gilo, Pisgat Ze’ev and Beit Horon – all are Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.

The company had constructed two bridges and an interchange in Ramot neighborhood in East Jerusalem; a 350 meter long bridge in the cluster of Gush Etzion and the “Eshkol tunnel” under the National Headquarters of the Israeli Police which is located in Kiryat Menachem Begin in East Jerusalem.

Shapir owns and operates cement plants in the occupied Palestinian territory: one in the industrial zone of Atarot and another in the settlement of Migdal Oz. Additionally, the company owns “Natuf” stone quarry in the West Bank, thus exploiting Palestinian natural resources for the needs of the Israeli construction industry.

Along with the Italian company Pizzarotti, the company established the partnership S.P.R. (Shapir Pizzarotti Railways) for the construction of section C of the A1 Tel Aviv-Jerusalem fast train. The route in this section crosses the Green Line into occupied Palestinian land, taking over private Palestinian agricultural lands and using Palestinian natural resources for an exclusive Israeli infrastructure project.
According to another contract that was signed in 2012 by Shapir engineering and Moriah companies for the development of Jerusalem, Shapir was responsible for conducting the pavement of the second section of road 50 referred to as “Begin south” road, including all its extension. Section two of road 50 is another stage in expending the road beyond the green line and connecting cities within the green line to the settlement neighborhood of Gilo and to highway number 60 (The tunnels road). Two new sections were opened recently (in 2015 and in 2016) and the entire project is due to end by 2017.



Ownership

Owned by the Shapira family: Chen, Israel, Har’el and Gil Shapira.
