POLOKWANE –Â Coverland Monier CEO, Hannelie van der Walt, did the honours of cutting the ribbon.
Coverland originally started in Polokwane in 2014 with a depot and by 2015 Coverland purchased an already existing roof tile plant which it took over officially from June 2016.
When Coverland took over the existing plant last year, the plan was to upgrade it and thereby increase production capacity. Work on the upgrade started in November 2016 and was completed in June 2017.
“Today we are proud to announce the opening of our plant. We are even more proud about the fact that our Coverland personnel built the new plant themselves. This is one of our dream projects, which now has come true,” Van der Walt said.
She added the Coverland Polokwane factory was one of nine concrete tile manufacturing plants under the Coverland umbrella, saying they have big expectations of the new plant in Polokwane as it is now the second largest plant of all the nine Coverland plants.
Van der Walt thanked all the personnel involved with the building and setup of the new factory. She said as a market leader in concrete tiles, Coverland prides itself on manufacturing the best quality product as is expected from its clients.
Coverland, founded in 1949, has since become the largest concrete roof tile manufacturer in South Africa and aims to add more extensive infrastructure investments over the next few years to increase its capacity product output, enhancing its product quality and also extending its current product range on offer.
The opening of the new Coverland Polokwane factory is proof of its commitment to deliver the best and sufficiently to its clients.
