Marley Building Systems announced that it had grown to a point of critical mass, and would be pushing forward with a clearly defined structure and approach to business cross-border into Africa.

Marley Building Systems is making strong headway in establishing the company as a leading innovator in sustainable dry construction solutions in South Africa and cross-border into Africa.

As the presenting sponsor of this year’s African Construction and Totally Concrete Expo, Marley Building Systems announced that it had grown to a point of critical mass and would be pushing forward with a clearly defined structure and approach to business.

Marley Building Systems is the South African subsidiary of global Belgian industrial group, Etex. With its headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, Etex specialises in the manufacturing and marketing of building materials across four business units: Cladding and building boards in fibre cement and plaster, roofing materials, passive fire protection and high-performance insulation, and ceramic floor and wall tiles.

The group has been firmly established in Europe and Latin America since 1905 and 1937 respectively, and is now looking to strengthen its position in Africa with the Southern African region and Nigeria as the company’s main drivers of growth.

Mark Irving, managing director of Marley Building Systems in South Africa, spoke at the event held at the Gallagher Convention Centre on 10 and 11 May, saying that the company had already put a regional team in place to develop opportunities on the continent.

“Africa is transitioning from traditional construction to alternative building technology, and we see Marley Building Systems redefining this new building methodology with innovative, sustainable and complete building solutions under the banner of sustainable construction,” Mark says.

Marley Building Systems has four product lines currently: Facades (Equitone), Fibre cement (Kalsi), plasterboard (Siniat) and roofing (Marley Roofing).
