REVOLUTION Precrafted Properties, Ltd. will start producing prefabricated medical pop-up structures in Zimbabwe after it signed a non-exclusive dealership agreement with investment firm African Tsaleach Private Ltd., the company said on Friday.
“We are excited about the great market interest in our prefab structures. We are happy to expand to Africa because we believe that our prefab structures can make a difference in the lives of the people in the continent,” said Revolution Precrafted Chief Executive Officer Jose Roberto R. Antonio in a statement.
Zimbabwe is the first African market for the company, which describes itself as a global leader in branded, limited edition prefab structures. The new market is its 25th overall globally in its continuing expansion.
“These medical centers will help medical workers in Zimbabwe reach out to the locals who are in much need of medical attention. Hopefully, we can develop more medical units not only in Zimbabwe but other parts of Africa as well,” said Mr. Antonio, who founded the company.
He said this is the company’s first time to produce modular medical pop-ups in response to the southern African country’s need for more medical facilities.
Revolution Precrafted said African Tsaleach had requested for an initial order of six industrial-type medical office facilities measuring at least 1,000 square meter each. The units will be converted to clinics and consultation centers to be stationed in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second-largest city with a population of nearly 700,000.
The company said thousands of Zimbabwe locals suffer each year from mosquito-borne and water-borne diseases, along with other infectious diseases. The lack of medical centers makes treatment difficult, it said.
“In our own little way, we hope that through these medical pop-ups, we can help improve the delivery of medical services in Zimbabwe,” Mr. Antonio said.
Revolution Precrafted has struck several partnerships with international companies in the past year, including a $52-million project in Spain, a $1.2-billion project in Myanmar, and $3.2-billion project in Dubai.
The company has also forged partnerships with property companies in the Caribbean nations of Trinidad, Guyana, Jamaica, and the Bahamas, as well as in Japan, Puerto rico, Ecuador, Brazil, and Cyprus.
Locally, it is currently developing prefabricated structures for Century Limitless Corp for the $1.1-billion Batulao Artscapes in Nasugbu, Batangas, the $750-million Revolution Flavorscapes in Mexico, Pampanga, and the $125-million Puerto Azul project in Cavite. — Victor V. Saulon
