    Recapitalised PG reopens in Masvingo

    New PG branch manager Vimbainashe Kuyerukana,

    PG Building Supplies which briefly closed its doors in Masvingo in 2018 has re-opened with bigger and better expectations of quality service following the coming in of a new investor in the company.
    PG Industries (Zimbabwe) (PGIZ) also has a new branch manager, Vimbainashe Kuyerukana, a textiles expert who however has wide experience in the timber and building industry.
    Kuyerukana said PG Industry Zimbabwe a previously listed company has a number of subsidiaries; Zimtile which specialises in roof tiles, pavers and bricks; PG Timbers specialising in trusses, built-in-kitchens, cupboards and doors; PG Glass dealing with all glass requirements and PG Building Supplies which is the general hardware.
    In Masvingo, all the subsidiaries are found at one place; at number 700 Timber Road in Masvingo industrial area.
    PGIZ recently got a new Chinese Investor called Dewai Investments.  Dewai Investments has started capitalising all the PG businesses in Zimbabwe.  This will involve importation of the latest manufacturing technologies.  They have also committed to stocking the nationwide PG branches with a wide variety of products including imported products.
    Kuyerukana was appointed branch manager in December 2018 and she replaces Alex Hadzirabwi now heading PG Centre Harare, Chinhoyi Street. She heads a branch with 51 employees. Kuyerukana joins PGIZ from Zimtile where she was sales coordinator in Harare.
    She said her aim was to bring back the old PG which was the household name in the construction industry in Zimbabwe. During its time everyone who was building would not miss the name PG.
    “I have a mission to bring back the old PG, the yesteryear household name in building material. It is common these days to hear of roofs of newly built houses being blown off by the winds but with PG you don’t get such products. We are a company that provides durable building material hence our moto ‘Trusted for Generations,” she added.
    Kuyerukana hailed PGZI products for their quality and said that there is a guarantee to customers because the organisation is ISO 9001:2015 certified(Zimtile).  The company’s trusses for example are made using an internationally renowned MITEK system.  PG trusses come with a 25 year guarantee.
    After completing her degree in Textile Engineering in 2004, Kuyerukana joined DCK in Kadoma as a retail supervisor before transferring to Harare in the same position.
    She worked for DST, the timber division for PGIZ in Harare before joining Premier Tobacco. In 2015 she went to college where she trained as a textile teacher at Belvedere Teachers’ College and after graduation she joined Drekofil Investments which specialises in selling buses and cars as a sales administrator.
    The second born to Precious and Tadeous Kuyerukana was born in Kwekwe and went to Emantonjeni and Kwekwe primary schools before enrolling for her secondary education at Guinea Fowl in Gweru until she completed her A Level.
    She went to National University of Science and Technology in Bulawayo for her degree in Textile Engineering.
    Kuyerukana has three kids a boy and two girls.
