Raubex Aims To Provide Diversified Construction Products And Services. Raubex is one of South Africa’s leading infrastructure development and construction materials supply groups, celebrating over 40 years in the construction industry since it was established in 1974. Raubex listed on the JSE in March 2007 and operates across South Africa as well as throughout southern Africa and Cameroon. Raubex recently also entered the Western Australian market through the acquisition of Westforce Construction. The group consists of three divisions, namely the Materials Division, the Roads and Earthworks Division and Infrastructure Division. Raubex operates in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Cameroon and Western Australia.
The company’s Materials Division specialises in the supply of aggregates from commercial quarries, it is a leading provider of material handling and screening services to the mining industry and provides mobile crushing solutions for remote project sites. It’s Roads and Earthworks Division specialises in road construction and earthworks as well as road surfacing and rehabilitation which includes the manufacturing and laying of asphalt, chip and spray, surface dressing, enrichments, slurry seals and the manufacture and distribution of value added bituminous products throughout Southern Africa. The Infrastructure Division specialises in disciplines outside the road construction sector, including energy (with a specific focus on renewable energy), rail, telecommunications, housing infrastructure projects and commercial building refurbishment and construction.
The company aims to be the African leader in road and civil engineering contracting, as well as in the provision of construction materials and mining services, whilst meeting all stakeholder expectations. This vision will be achieved by: Creating an environment that will attract, retain and develop the best employees; timeous delivery of quality products and services to clients; being highly mobile and well equipped; managing relationships with clients and other stakeholders with professionalism and integrity; meeting social, health, safety and environmental responsibilities and applying corporate governance best practice.
The group is aware of its social responsibilities and believes it is crucial for businesses to play a positive role in the communities within which they operate. The group’s CSI strategy is to focus on education and skills development initiatives. It established a bursary project that aims to assist learners with their marks. The Monyetla Bursary Project (“Monyetla”) is a registered public benefit organisation with the aim to assist grade 12 learners from previously disadvantaged and poor communities in the Free State, improve their results and afford them opportunities to qualify for bursaries and tertiary education. This has enabled poor families to break the cycle of poverty. The word “monyetla” means “opportunity” in Sesotho. The initiative was established in February 2007 and currently offers additional classes for 11 subjects which are presented by some of the most experienced educators the province has to offer.
