Hello Zimbabwe . It has been several months since we last posted a blog and we apologies for that . There is no good excuse – but we have been very busy .
The building and home improvement market has been positive all year . The cement manufacturers , brick makers , roofing businesses , bathroom and kitchen manufacturers , hardware shops and the window and door people have had a good year .
Zimbabweans love their homes .
We have just felt the sadness of the fuel queues again but are not letting that get to us . We hope and believe it is temporary and are planning accordingly . There has been so much progressive , positive news flowing through recently and we are focusing on that . Reports are that our economy has grown by 5% plus this year and possibly double that next year ! We have much to look forward to ! J
Other good news is that with the re introduction of F CA accounts we expect to resume exporting again soon at competitive prices . Historically we have had exports to neighboring counties as an important component of our mix . ( The strong US Dollar eradicated much of that . ) ( We have just completed a quote for a safari camps in the Okavango Delta – holding thumbs !)
The future is bright . Go Zimbabwe !
There has also been a lot of talk about price increases all around . We continue to hold our prices down in any way we can . In fact we are introducing a extra discount for the Christmas season of up to 10% on most of the types of products . ( November , December and January ) Call or write in and check and get your quotes
