Coverland launches new concrete tile plant in Polokwane

POLOKWANE – Coverland Monier CEO, Hannelie van der Walt, did the honours of cutting the ribbon.

Personnel and guests gathered on Wednesday, 28 June at Coverland Polokwane for the opening of its new state-of-the-art concrete tile factory.

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.

All involved from Coverland Polokwane with the building of this concrete tile manufacturer and supplier’s new factory were acknowledge for their devoted contributions on a nameplate at the entrance of this new factory.

“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.

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.
