AfriPrecast was founded in 2015 following partnership with Millenial Group and Horizon Group for the production of pre-cast concrete materials.
In recent years, the construction sector in Rwanda has shown significant growth. Having been responsible for much of the continuous rise in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) over the past decade, there is confidence in AfriPrecast’s potential to further the sector and its associated industries. The introduction of pre-cast technology to Rwanda’s construction industry came at a time when both the private and public sectors were seeking faster and more reliable ways of putting in place physical infrastructure.
Pre-cast concrete, particularly hollow core flooring construction, has a number of distinct advantages including improved speed of construction, quality control and lighter floors. Contractors, building owners, and realtors know that a building constructed of concrete products is more marketable and has a higher resale value.
Limited local usage of pre-cast concrete has largely been due to lack of awareness and limited supply.
AfriPrecast aims to change this, based on increased demand for fast-tracked construction projects in Rwanda and neighboring countries.
