Mabati Rolling Mills rolls out prefab houses

Mabati Rolling Mills has entered the low-end housing market by offering prefabricated houses. The manufacturer is seeking a piece of the property market from selling ready-made steel houses that will retail at between Sh80,000 and Sh160,000 for two and four-room homes respectively. It hopes that the pricing will help it penetrate the low-end of the housing market that many investors have neglected as they target the lucrative middle and top-end of the market. READ ON:
