In Asia, Colas is present in 10 countries (China, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, India, South Korea and Australia) allowing all subsidiaries to benefit from a powerful technical knowhow and network.

in 1982, Colas started business in Indonesia as a partner in a consortium of 3 companies with SPIE Batignolles and Campenon Bernard to work on the refection and the extension of the Jakarta airport (phase 1 and 2) until 1989.

In February 1990, PT. Waskita Colas (WASCO) was created as a result of a Joint venture between Colas SA (France) and PT. Waskita Karya (Indonesia) to carry out several big job sites.

In 1996, PT. Waskita Karya sold its shares to local partners.

Since then the name of the Joint Venture was changed to PT. Wydia Sapta Colas without changing the brand entity WASCO.
