Construction World – June 2014

Bitcon Industries, South Africa’s leading fire, security and transformer door manufacturer, has secured more major orders as its export drive into sub-Saharan Africa continues.

The company recently supplied Rubidor Class A and B fire doors to WBHO, the main contractor for the construction of West Hills Mall in Accra, Ghana. Developed by The Atterbury Group in conjunction with the Social Security National Insurance Trust of Ghana, West Hills Mall is set to become the largest single-phase modern shopping centre in the Ghanaian capital.

Bitcon also secured orders to supply Rubidor fire doors to the new Accra Financial Centre, also in the capital of Ghana; Rubidor fire doors to the iTowers development in Gaborone, Botswana; and Rubidor fire doors – finished in two-panel Formica – to the new FNB Freedom Plaza being built in Windhoek, Namibia.
