Rexe Roofing Products Ltd, an acronym for Reliable, Excellent, eXperienced & Elegant is the brainchild of our Managing Director who after working extensively in the construction industry, particularly in roofing products and services , took the initiative to start her own company, in partnership with two other Directors.
Rexe Roofing Products Ltd sole purpose is to improve the living standards for home owners in Kenya and Eastern Africa communities by availing affordable quality roofing and waterproofing products, successively bridging the gap between demand and supply of these products in the construction industry whose growth was much greater than the few existing suppliers could handle. This created the much needed employment to supply the labour force that was required to meet the demand for roofing products and services.
The entrance of Rexe Roofing Products Ltd in the industry provided clients with a variety of products at an affordable cost thereby ending monopoly by one supplier that had dominated the market for a long time. As a result, the prices of roofing materials came down substantially because the “take it or leave it attitude” by that company was no longer tenable. However, the journey has been far from smooth as the same company sends out emails periodically, warning clients about our products by referring to an outdated technology of “organic shingles” used in Canada which was discontinued 30 years ago. This in addition to undermining and use of other unethical undercutting tactics to try and regain their monopoly in the industry.
Despite all the challenges, Rexe Roofing Products Ltd is growing with reaps and bounds and is now registered with the Kenya Chamber of Commerce. It has made its mark in the roofing products and services segment of the construction industry in East Africa. Since its establishment the company has won a number of high profile projects including Mt. Kenya Holiday Homes in Naromoru, 5 star hotels at Maasai Mara and Amboseli, Mt. Kenya Wildlife Estate in Nanyuki, Acacia Mall in Uganda, The Hub Karen in Nairobi, Gateway mall, as well as numerous private and commercial projects in Arusha, Kisumu, Kakamega, Homa Bay, Eldoret, Nakuru Malindi, Machakos, Mwingi among others. Rexe Roofing Products Ltd products has now been contracted by IKO Shingles International, Belgium as the sole agent and distributor of their Belgian manufactured IKO shingles in Eastern Africa. The company is now well positioned to become the leading supplier of roofing and waterproofing products and services in the region.
This would not have been possible without the support of our clients who ignored negative publicity and propaganda and instead, they trusted the quality of our products and services thus giving us an opportunity to prove ourselves as a worthy and reliable company in the construction industry.
Our deep rooted values have been and always will be: being true and keeping our word to our clients who are the pillars of Rexe Roofing Products Ltd.
