Steel at the core of innovation.

The Conco Warehouse project showcased innovative steel design for Coca-Cola. It’s the largest warehouse in Eswatini, featuring unique structures like a coke bottle-shaped gatehouse and waste storage facility. Complex structural elements ensured stability and future expansion capability. Collaboration across borders was crucial for success – a real working example of Ubuntu, says the professional team.

Notably, iconic Coca-Cola bottle structures grace the building’s facade, requiring meticulous craftsmanship to replicate the brand’s image. The facility’s design integrates the Coca-Cola brand, delivering a bold statement. Environmental responsibility is also a priority, with a commitment to sustainability.

The project was completed by 31 March, 2023 and showcases the remarkable potential of steel through visionary design, precise fabrication, and cutting-edge construction.
