A public Israeli company specializing in infrastructure, Franchise, industry and real estate.

The company operates a quarry and a concrete plant located near the settlement of Nili in the occupied West Bank. The company has a license to operate the quarry until 30 June 2022.

The bypass road expropriates Palestinian land for a project aimed to benefit an illegal settler population.

In 2020, the company was awarded a contract with the Israeli Ministry of Defense to plan, finance, establish, operate and maintain three logistics centers for the Israeli army. As part of the contract, the company was awarded NIS 1.25 billion for the establishment of the centers. In addition, by the start of the operation, the company will receive regular payments, reaching a total of NIS 5.5 billion.

In 2019, the company and its Spanish partner CAF won a tender for the implementation of the second stage of the Jerusalem light rail. The project entails the extension of the Red Line from the settlement neighborhood of Pisgat Zeev to the settlement neighborhood of Neve Ya’akov and the construction of the Green Line, which will run from Gilo through the city center to Mt. Scopus. The two companies will also operate and maintain both lines.

The company has carried out housing and infrastructure projects in the settlement neighborhoods of Gilo and Pisgat Ze’ev in East Jerusalem, and projects in the settlements of Maale Adumim and Beit Horon in the West Bank.

The company had constructed two bridges and an interchange in Ramot settlement neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem; a 350 meter long bridge in the Gush Etzion settlement block in the West Bank and the “Eshkol tunnel” under the Israel Police national headquarters in Kiryat Menachem Begin in East Jerusalem.

According to a contract signed in 2012 by Shapir Engineering and Moriah Jerusalem Development Corporation, Shapir was responsible for paving works in the second section of Road 50, referred to as “Begin South” road, including all its extension. Section two is part of the expansion of Road 50 beyond the Green Line, connecting to the settlement neighborhood of Gilo and to Highway 60 (‘the Tunnels Road).

The company was also involved in infrastructure work for the Tel Aviv Jerusalem fast train (A1), which crosses into the occupied Palestinian territory in two areas.

In 2020, the company joined the “adopt a Fighter” project. The project allows private companies to adopt units in the Israeli army and support them during their operations. As part of the project, Shapir adopted the “Golani” training base.
