A new plant producing diverse types of construction materials was yesterday inaugurated in Gahengeri Sector of Rwamagana District and is expected to lower costs on construction materials procured from distant areas.

NISSI Machinery and Construction Company will supply aggregates and sand, manufacture heavy duty packers, road kerbs, blocks and ventilators, and do construction and maintenance of buildings and roads.

The plant is owned by several shareholders, with the Business Development Fund (BDF) being the majority shareholder with 50 per cent of equity stake.
