KLF Brief

The original facility

The Kuwait Locrete Facility is the first production facility built to produce the Locrete Building System. After it was commissioned in 2006, the Kuwait facility was dedicated to researching and developing the Locrete system as well as marketing it to potential clients.

The output of the facility was mainly utilised for building small projects in Kuwait as well as mock-ups and sample properties for diverse markets in Africa and the Middle East.

The company acquired a certificate from the Ministry of Public Works allowing us to use the Locrete system for public/government sponsored projects.
