The event which begun with a factory tour led by Roofings’ Executive Director Olivier Lalani, climaxed with the official unveiling of the new Roofings at 25 logo to the invited guests.
“Today is a very special day for us. We are celebrating a 25-year-old journey of partnerships, compliance, growth, employment, hard work, innovation, service dedication and success. Over these years, we have turned a home grown brand into a trusted brand and the market leader of steel and plastic construction products in Uganda,” Olivier Lalani remarked.
Dr. Sikander Lalani, the Roofings Chairman, echoed Olivier’s remarks and added that there is still so much to do.
“Over the past 25 years, we have worked passionately to uphold the high standards in business processes. Our efforts towards producing the best quality products, creating thousands of jobs, investing in new technologies and protecting the environment from pollution have changed the way Africa looks at Uganda,” Mr. Lalani noted.

From Kaluma dam, the new Nile Bridge in Jinja to the new Southern bypass, Roofings has played a major part in Uganda’s development. Furthermore, the manufacturer employs high-tech machinery and state-of-the-art technology to ensure that all the products maintain the best quality standards.
As part of the celebration, Roofings longest serving employees honoured Lalani with a plaque to appreciate his dedication towards ensuring favourable employment to Ugandans.
