Two new companies, Murray & Roberts Kenya Ltd, situated in the Funzai Road Industrial Area, Nairobi, and Murray & Roberts Ghana Ltd, in the Movenpick Commercial Centre in Accra were recently established.

“The decision to form two business hubs in East and West Africa was taken about 18 months ago by Murray Roberts Limited to address the vast geographical gap in our corporate presence between South Africa and Dubai,” said Murray & Roberts Construction’s Leon Botha.

“We realised that we can service the region far better from business sites closer to existing and potential customers,” Botha added.

Murray & Roberts Buildings will bid for tenders in JV and H Young, however, both parties are also able to tender on projects independently, the company stated.

“We’re now looking out for joint opportunities in and around Ghana and we feel very optimistic about these prospects,” Botha said.
