Rudolf Fourie, CEO of Raubex Group, said: "Following a very difficult 2019
financial year in which a number of rightsizing initiatives where undertaken, we
have managed to stop the bleeding and the group is now better positioned to
manage the lower volume of construction work on hand, while it has maintained
sufficient capacity to participate in an anticipated improvement in the sector.
"Although softer results were reported by the materials division, the infrastructure
division has experienced strong growth during the first half of the year, mainly as
a result of work related to the division's participation in the Renewable Energy
Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme, where a number of
contracts are currently in progress.
"We are encouraged by a substantial increase in tender activity that has been
observed in recent months which now needs to materialise into contract awards."
