Crown Berger has entered into a distributor partnership with leading South African firm Flowcrete, that will see the paint company manufacture and supply resin floors locally.
According to Managing Director Rakesh Rao, the partnership which runs for five years, targets the high end property market like shopping malls, homes and office blocks. This will see Crown Berger cover Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania and Burundi on behalf of Flowcrete, and in the future venture into the manufacturing of flooring products in Kenya.
The partnership gives Kenya’s only public trading paint company the opportunity to diversify Crown Berger product range that has largely been centered around the competitive paint market, while at the same time giving the South African firm a grip on the Kenyan market.
