In 2011, since my father, José Sampol Arbona established this company in 1934, had passed 77 years.

It is a great source of pride for me that that the company has been in existence for such a long time, and I am also pleased that it has a secure future thanks to the incorporation of the 3rd generation, that is to say, my children.

We are fortunate enough to have preserved the original document containing the very first project that my father undertook with the company in 1934. Ever since the company was established we have, step by step, created this great company that is now known as SAMPOL INGENIERÍA Y OBRAS S.A. Proof of this lies in the fact that we have obtained the prestigious Environmental Management Systems awards for compliance with International Standard ISO 14001:2004, a system certified by BVQI, award 9001:2008 and also OSHAS 18001:2007, as well as UNE Standard 16001:2006.

Throughout these many years, we have managed to come through not only the crises of 1973 and 1991, but also the current crisis, thanks to diversification, both sectoral and geographical.

The company’s first milestone was to install pure electrical facilities in civil works. We then went on to develop airport infrastructures and visual aids. We then took a major step forward by making inroads into the Caribbean and, from there, to Central America, which is still one of our best markets. We stand out in these markets, where we are well known for implementing energy-efficient generation systems such as cogeneration, a technique that has also been implemented on the Spanish mainland and the islands.

We have recently formed several very dynamic departments, such as the Operation and Maintenance Division or the Communications Division, which are applied to train and airport control systems. By way of a summary, the company has built up a wealth of experience over the last 77 years, which has made us a leader in this globalised world.

Thank-you for helping us to grow. Gabriel Sampol Mayol

The 1930’s was a decade of major changes in Spain, and the Balearic Isles were no exception. SAMPOL was established in Mallorca in 1934, as Casa Sampol, in a context that required it develop its capacity to adapt and overcome difficult times. This quality, intrinsic to SAMPOL, has enabled it to successfully cope with even the most adverse situations.

In the years following the Spanish Civil War, the island was transformed into a service economy, with the advent of mass tourism towards the end of the 1950’s. Sampol was thus able to firmly establish itself in the business and industrial areas of the Balearics.

In the seventies, it began to diversify in the geographical sense, initiating a process of expansion beyond the islands, opening up branches in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville and the Canary Isles.

In the early 80’s, SAMPOL embarked on its sectorial diversification, developing its airport activities, installing all types of electrical facilities throughout the domestic air network and helping to create new Spanish airports.

The activities involved in promoting and managing large projects carried out by the SAMPOL Group has earned the company recognition in the key sectors of the domestic economy, thus enabling it to transfer the knowledge acquired to countries far from Spain.

Because it, SAMPOL began a process of internationalisation and became a multinational. At the end of the eighties and the beginning of the nineties, the same sectors of activity that the SAMPOL Group opted for in Spain, took it to other countries, such as; Mexico, Jamaica, Panama and the Dominican Republic. The SAMPOL Group also started its activities in Italy, Belgium, Palestine and North Africa. The company now has a work force of 900 professionals and its growth plan involves developing the business in South East Asia, concentrating on the business areas where it has a specific technical knowhow and with greater added value.



Technological Integration Installations


Since the seventies, SAMPOL has carried out projects in 47 Spanish airports as well as airports in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Palestine and Gibraltar. It is currently recognised as being one of the leading companies in runway construction, ground-lighting and visual aids, electromechanical facilities and remote control systems. The following are some of the most outstanding projects:

Construction and ground-lighting projects on the runways of more than 55 airports. These include Madrid-Barajas, Barcelona and Malaga in Spain, Gaza (Palestine); Las Americas, Gregorio Luperon and Samana in the Dominican Republic, Guadalajara in Mexico or Sal on the Cape Verde Islands. The construction of over 20 emergency generating stations for critical airport systems, including those for Madrid-Barajas, Valencia, Zaragoza and Gaza (Palestine), as well as the licence for the 33 MW Cogeneration station for supplying the terminals T4 and TS4 at Madrid-Barajas.

Installing the megaphone and evacuation system for terminal T1 at Barcelona Airport; maintenance for the TETRA and electronic radio communications system at Madrid-Barajas, as well as the maintenance work for the systems for controlling and presenting the ground-lighting at 26 Spanish airports.

Carrying out more than 50 electromechanical and telecommunications facility projects in terminal buildings (CCTV, passenger information, telecommunications networks, control systems, etc.)

SAMPOL has attached a great deal of importance to the rail sector in recent years. Basing its offer on its knowledge of the infrastructure and its experience and expertise with critical systems, the company has developed projects for the metropolitan and interurban systems in Barcelona, Valencia, Palma de Mallorca, Tenerife and Santo Domingo (The Dominican Republic).

The fact that expert staff are now working on this infrastructure has been a key factor in providing the electrification facilities (overhead distribution and substations); train-ground radio communication systems TETRA, safety/security systems and passenger information systems and integrated control centres (remote control over energy and fixed facilities and installations).

As the company is responsible for the maintenance of the station, energy and telecommunications facilities for the Palma de Mallorca Metro, the company has acquired considerable knowledge about operating and managing the infrastructure, which has enabled it to improve the remote control and management systems of the facilities and obtain first hand information about the operators’ requirements.


Spain: Extension to the L3 Metro in Barcelona - Trinitat Nova Station, Phase IV of the Palma de Mallorca

Metro, Remote Control over Energy and Fixed Facilities for the Valencia Metro network, Creating the underground intermodal station for Palma and Electrification of the Tenerife Tramway.

International: Substations and Electricity Plant for the Santo Domingo Metro.



The SAMPOL Energy Division’s strategic approach is a response to a clear reality in the changes affecting the processes within the sector and the irreversible decentralisation of the energy production systems.

We have opted for implementing small power stations of up to 200 MW integrated in urban, rural and industrial areas that supply energy directly to the end users and make it possible to maximise efficiency in the use of fuels.

For more than 20 years, SAMPOL has been planning, installing and operating power plants for industries, on technology and industrial estates, at hotel complexes and resorts, hospitals and infrastructures where the final user obtains energy that is closer, safer, cleaner and more efficient. SAMPOL is currently operating plants with a total capacity greater than 100 MW and is a member of the Spanish electricity pool.

In systems that supply energy to critical systems, projects have been performed to guarantee the airport systems and runways for more than 20 airports, in the Palma de Mallorca Metro and the Santo Domingo Metro. The company also has Rotary Units for continuous supply with highly specific applications to Data centres, Hospitals, etc., where a reliable and permanent supply is absolutely essential.

SAMPOL has extended its activities to the environmental area by applying its specialities to hydraulic works projects, waste treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants, desalination plants, water supply networks, etc.

In this sector, SAMPOL has implemented more efficient energy systems by optimising the existing electricity facilities, and control systems have been developed for different applications in this industry. Thus, in 2008 the company installed in the Alicante Desalination Plant, the first control system with distributed intelligence in a plant of those characteristics, and has developed remote control systems for water supply and distribution networks for Local Councils, Communities and Associations.

In the field of telecommunications and control systems, SAMPOL has concentrated its efforts on the hotel and airport area. SAMPOL has also developed mobile radio communications facilities, control systems and ground-lighting in the terminal buildings of all the Spanish military and civil airports. Recently, the airports at Barcelona, A Coruña, Bilbao, Las Palmas, Fuerteventura, Madrid-Barajas, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca, Lerida, Salamanca and Granada have been adapted to the new requirements imposed by AENA, and SAMPOL has installed its very best technology.

On an international level, the company has also collaborated in Gaza (Palestine), Guadalajara (Mexico), Samana (Dominican Republic), Las Americas (Dominican Republic) and Gregorio Luperon (Dominican Republic), by adapting and improving the air control systems.

Where hotels are concerned, SAMPOL has implemented the following systems in the Hilton, Gran Melia, Barcelo and Riu, which operate in such countries as Belgium, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama and the Dominican Republic: voice and data, background audio (piped music), CCTV, intercom, access to Internet, fire detection systems, facility control and management systems, intelligent building, audiovisual solutions, home automation (domotics) applied to comfort and integrated lighting control.

SAMPOL’s experience in the field of communications has enabled the company to develop major projects in this area, such as putting into operation renewal plans for security and emergency radio communication systems, which includes the transmission of protected data from Government Authorities.

The well-known TETRA system is used to unify under one single radio communications channel, all the radio communications systems for the emergency and security units, the local police force, the fire brigade, civil defence and emergency telephone 112, thereby simplifying the communication process and guaranteeing a quicker response time when dealing with any contingencies that might arise.


With more than 50 years’ experience specialising in carrying out projects and providing facilities and installations for hotels and resorts in Europe, Central America and Africa, SAMPOL has taken part in developing some of the best known tourist complexes for major hotel chains such as Hilton, Barcelo, Riu, Sol Meliá or Bahia Principe.

SAMPOL provides turnkey solutions for any energy, electromechanical and telecommunications facilities and installations, as well as technical control over them, as well as finding and developing specific solutions in the areas of domotics, energy management, lighting, etc.

The reliability of our engineering, our quality assurance guarantee, our experience and our commitment to complying with the performance deadlines are the foundations on which our work is based.

In keeping with its philosophy, SAMPOL believes in and is committed to long-term projects. Proof of which can be seen in the way it clearly opts for concessions. The company’s formula is to develop and design the project from within, invariably thinking of the future, with the support of its engineers, before performing it and, finally, running it once it is completed.

The subsequent service is thus more efficient, a special effort being made in the area of preventive maintenance, with a view to minimising the need for corrective maintenance, with the consequent technical improvements and economic saving.

At present, SAMPOL is running major projects that it developed in the past, and as soon as the works were completed it started to operate them. The Madrid-Barajas Airport Hotel, the CAIB Patrimoni Building and the Comte Sallent Parking Facilities, both in Palma de Mallorca, are all examples of such projects.

The company has also been generating electricity and thermoelectric cooling at the Madrid-Barajas Airport Cogeneration Plant, whose concession terminates in 2025, providing the supply for Terminals T4 and TS4.


SAMPOL provides operation and maintenance services (O&M) for all the facilities and services that it offers, including predictive maintenance, preventive maintenance and corrective maintenance. With a view to guaranteeing the safety and security of its systems and facilities, SAMPOL has implemented a prevention management and organisation model, integrated into the rest of the services that it offers its clients, which depends on a Maintenance Engineering Division.

Where infrastructures are concerned, SAMPOL has managed the maintenance of medium -and high-voltage electricity plants, ground-lighting for runways, terminal buildings, communications networks and electronics for the Madrid-Barajas, Malaga, Seville, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote and Ibiza Airports. The company manages the maintenance of the energy package stations and telecommunications for rail systems, including the Palma de Mallorca Metro, as well as the electricity plant and supply substations for the Santo Domingo Metro and has experience in operating distribution networks and water treatment plants.

As far as the private sector is concerned, SAMPOL manages and maintains all kinds of facilities and installations for hotel chains and industrial and institutional groups. Major hotel chains such as Sol Melia, Barcelo, Riu, Iberostar or Soltur trust SAMPOL to manage their facilities and installations in countries in the Caribbean and North Africa.


The best way to guarantee the quality of your services is to strictly analize the technological market, anticipating the future requirements of your clients. The technological innovation area carries out this task by planning and providing systems before they are actually commercialised, thereby ensuring that your services are the most suitable for your clients.

The areas where SAMPOL concentrates its R&D&I efforts are energy together with automation and control. These two areas have recently become some of the areas where there has been greatest movement on the current market. SAMPOL is aware of the need to anticipate its clients’ requirements and, thanks to ongoing research, is still at the forefront where innovation is concerned.

In recent years the company has licensed 16 research projects that it developed and has applied to different sectors (airports, security-safety, control systems for industrial, energy plants, etc.).

Through the sponsorship of university (UIB) professorships and agreements with universities, the R&D&I unit at SAMPOL is working on technological challenges such as electrically-powered vehicles and intelligent energy networks, innovation in energy systems, renewable energies and energy storage.
