SAMI Bitumen Technologies was formed in 1978 to meet a market need for new bitumen technology and remains an industry leader in research and development.
As an independent operator SAMI enjoys the global support and guaranteed bitumen supply from it’s French parent Colas SA, a publicly listed company that operates internationally through businesses primarily focused on specialty bitumen activities.
The Colas Group is a highly regarded global bitumen technology organisation, with an emphasis on bitumen supply and associated technologies. An important element of this strategy has been the investment by a Colas subsidiary in the construction and operation of a new bitumen refinery located in Malaysia, capable of producing in excess of 1 million tonnes of bitumen per year. Additionally Colas subsidiaries own and operate a fleet of 7 bulk hot bitumen shipping vessels in the region.
