Meanwhile, the Safal Group opened its first manufacturing facility in Mombasa, Kenya, in 1962, rapidly widening its reach to include further countries in East Africa, and then Southern Africa. In 2003, all operating companies were reversed into the current holding company called Safal Investments Mauritius Limited which conducts its business across Africa as the Safal Group. Today, the Safal Group manufactures in 10 African countries and sells and markets its building solutions across the continent.
