Prominent Paints Awarded R1m RDP Housing Contract

Prominent Paints has notched up yet another impressive contract where the paint value alone was just under one-million rand. The 480 unit multi-story RDP housing project in Gauteng has put a serious dent in the housing back-log in the Johannesburg area and Prominent Paints is proud to have been a part of this significant community enriching project.

Appointed by Raubex Building – a JSE-listed company – is also noteworthy and it’s no small thing to have the confidence and support of such a large Group. The first such project of its kind in RDP housing – the enviable standards achieved, within record turnaround times, rate among the best in any RDP construction project.

Commenting on the recently completed Riverside Diepsloot contract, Prominent Paints Inland Trade Business Consultant, Marietjie Waller says, “The trust the Raubex Group has in our products is evident by the repeat business we are getting. Customer service and efficiency through our Captive Network makes the decision to continue working with us an easy one. We are incredibly proud and look forward to many more collaborations with this building giant.”

Each Riverside View unit is two bedrooms, an open plan kitchen, with a living room and one bathroom; in line with the specification, the walls were skimmed and painted inside, and a bath, toilet, basin and stand-alone sink installed.

With 37 000 lites of exterior and interior paint ordered – it’s a sizeable contract and we are confident that our Select range will uphold our brand promise of making things better. The order included:

  • Universal undercoat
  • Wall Primer
  • Select sheen
  • Select Wall and Ceiling White
  • Select Gloss

The development was completed in six months and is the second such project that Prominent Paints has worked on with Raubex. The first, valued at R350 000, used the same products as the most recent order and was for a development in Clayville Tembisa.

Other recent client wins – projects currently underway – include sites in Parkdene in Boksburg and Selcourt Estates in Springs. All projects we can be proud of – these latest appointments are over and above the R500 000 Postmasburg project wrapped up last year.
