Nigerite Limited, a foremost building solutions manufacturer has formally launched a new product known as KalsiClad.
KalsiClad is the latest in Nigerite’s Kalsi range of building solutions, said the Managing Director, Nigerite Limited, Mr. Frank Le Bris, during the launch, which took place at the company’s premises at Ikeja, Lagos, last week.
The managing director said KalsiClad is a light weight fibre cement building board suitable for cladding application that gives facades a modern and stylish look. It is the best solution for old, tired facades and allows for innovative designs on new facades.
KalsiClad, he said offers humidity resistance, durability and dimensional stability. Other brands in the category include KalsiCeiling, KalsiWall, KalsiPlank and KalsiFloor.
The Kalsi brand is a global Etex brand synonymous with innovation, flexibility, dynamism and aesthetics. We will continue to strive to excite the built sector with brands such as these in order to consistently raise the bar in the building construction industry in Nigeria.
According to him, the premises of Nigerite “was recently adjudged and indeed, for the umpteenth time to be the cleanest and best kept industrial premises in Lagos State by the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN). This is a clear manifestation of our well-articulated cultural philosophy of adhering to international best practices in all aspects of our operations.”
The launch of KalsiClad, he said was “particularly gladdening, because it is a result of sheer determination of the entire stakeholders of Nigerite Limited and many years of experience and innovation of our major shareholders, Etex.”
He quoted the French philosopher, Diderot to have said “Only passion, great passion, that can elevate the soul to great things,” saying that the launch of KalsiClad was done through a combination of people and ideas. “It is a reflection of our organisation’s uncanny passion for innovation, imagination, foresight and excellence.”
