OVER 65 YEARS’ EXPERIENCE IN ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION

Our history goes back to 1949 when we began working in the field of engineering and construction; since then, we have forged a name for ourselves in the execution of large-scale projects. As a modern and flexible professional organization, our technical teams are capable of managing highly complex works. We have 65 years of experience to our credit in construction and works management in the following areas:

  • Founded in 1949 by private capital of Italian origin
  • Headquarters: City of Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • Proven track record and experience in highly complex projects
  • Consolidated technical leadership in the hydropower and water sector, as shown by the construction of 14 hydroelectric plants and dams

OUR VISION AND VALUES

Our business strategy is about participating, with leadership and decisiveness, in major infrastructure projects throughout the region, creating jobs and fostering activity in the construction sector.

We are deeply committed to excellence, technical rigor and compliance with the highest standards of quality in the execution of our projects as well as in the contractual deadlines we assume. Inspired by the sacrifice and effort of those who founded the company, we are highly motivated and dedicated to our work, something that has allowed us to build large-scale works as part of a team. We hold our clients, suppliers, subcontractors, professionals and employees in the highest regard as well as the banks and financial institutions with which we operate, and take into consideration the needs of the community and environment where we develop our projects. Our experience has helped us to consolidate efficient management processes with professionalism, accountability and security.

“I was trained in the culture of a company whose core values were always commitment and compliance: commitment and compliance with clients, suppliers, employees and financiers. But above all, with our country.”

HUGO A. DRAGONETTI

PRESIDENT

Lawyer | He has served as the director of public and private companies, focusing his career on the articulation of large infrastructure projects.

Intelligence resources and capital should be directed towards thinking and carrying out whatever is essential for the evolution of the community. Infrastructure projects should be a priority in the development of our societies.

The construction of infrastructure should not be considered an expense but an investment whose return is about definitively guaranteeing a sustainable growth cycle..

Panedile’s commitment goes far beyond its aim to position itself as a company with solid experience and excellent technical experience in the field of large-scale works. Panedile interprets the challenge of the moment as an opportunity for companies which are able to present the necessary technical credentials, but which also have the capabilities to develop the financial engineering needed to make these works happen.”
