Colossal is a 16.7% shareholder of Colossal Concrete Products (CCP), a proudly majority black women-owned and controlled precast concrete manufacturing company based in Gauteng and Northern Cape provinces. CCP is a dynamic and agile partnership between 4 companies that acquired Aveng Infraset’s Brakpan and De Aar facilities for their rail, telecommunications, civil engineering and specialised precast concrete manufacturing capabilities and intellectual property (IP).
Following a professional, smooth and synergistic transaction with Aveng, the two precast concrete facilities rebranded under the new company Colossal Concrete Products. Infraset, originally a company within the renowned multibillion-rand Grinaker Group and later a core asset of JSE-listed international infrastructure and resources company Aveng, has been manufacturing a diverse range of high-quality, innovative precast concrete products in compliance with South African National Standards using the ISO 9001 quality management system for over 62 years.
The strategic acquisition of the Brakpan and De Aar plants was a really defining moment for us. This is because it represents a golden opportunity not only to service our long-term vision of diversifying into different vertical industries; but also as an excellent springboard for our planned Pan-African expansion,” Mahuma says.
CCP offers a range of concrete products with the facilities, intellectual property (IP) and licences to continue with the supply of a wide range of precast rails, poles, masts, pipes, culverts, enclosures and related specialised product ranges.
