Mabati Rolling Mills Limited (MRM), a member of the Safal Group has launched the SAFBUILD manufacturing plant at its Athi River facility in the outskirts of capital city Nairobi.
MRM's SAFBUILD brings to the market a new way of building quality steel framed buildings using their custom designed Proprietary Software.
The cold formed high strength frames are completely factory-produced ready for fast erection and assembly at site.
The plant has a capacity to supply both domestic and regional markets in a range of standard buildings and custom designed solutions.
Andrew Heycott, CEO Mabati Rolling Mills said, "SAFBUILD and SAFDESIGN now offers us world class technology in Pre-Engineered Steel Building solutions which permits us to deliver buildings to clients within very tight timelines"
"We trust this innovative investment will transform the way modular Steel buildings are constructed. This will further upkeep the Kenya Government's 'Big Four' agenda and also further add to the competitiveness of Kenya's manufacturing and agricultural sectors and aid to ensure superior compliance to building standards"
While speaking during the commissioning ceremony, the SAFBUILD Business Head, Manish Garg was confident that numerous projects across commercial, agricultural, industrial, and social sectors will gain profit from the solution.
Manish Garg further added, "Since commissioning we have produced and supplied a number of projects to contented clients and we have several more in the pipeline under current design and production. The buildings are constructed fit-for-purpose to exacting designs and are environmentally sustainable"
Kenya and indeed the East African Region continue to remain on a trajectory of rapid urbanization and infrastructure development.
There is improved demand for more sustainable buildings that provide greater proficiency and for more efficient construction techniques to provide durability.
