Sh240m modern door factory opens in Nairobi

NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 9 – 64Door Factory, a manufacturer of interior wooden doors, launched a production facility in Nairobi worth $2.4m (Sh240 million).

The company targets to provide high quality interior door sets and installation service to the building industry in East Africa.

64Door Factory has a wide stock of different doors at its factory facility in Nairobi which enables the company to provide service to individual builders as well as small and large-scale construction projects with short delivery and installation times.

The factory has the capacity to produce over 50,000 doors annually and plans to employ over 100 staff at full production.

Speaking at the launch, 64Door Factory Ltd. Director Nyamu Wanyoike said that the decision to set up operations in Nairobi was based on the current needs of the country. He further expressed his optimism about their long term partnership approach with Kenyan builders, suppliers, distributors, resellers, contractors and professionals, among other stakeholders, in the construction sector.

“We will offer one-stop-shop solutions to our customers for their door requirements, a shift from the current market practices and we offer imported quality level, locally produced with pre and after sales support,” Nyamu said.

The project is a partnership of private investors from Kenya and European Union member Estonia.

More than 52pc of Estonian landmass is covered with forest and this enables Estonia to be a global leader in wood technology with a sophisticated timber industry which will serve as a source of world class technique and solutions for East-African market.

By investing in Kenya, the project aims to tap into the Eastern Africa market from its Kenyan base.
