The CEO of Uganda Baati, George Arodi, said “We understand the significance of reliability and durability when it comes to building solutions; we have won many awards for the same, and that’s why we have poured our expertise and passion into bringing Lifestile®, premium stone-coated steel roof tiles. We know that a roof is an essential element of any structure, be it residential, commercial, or industrial. Even under the high perimeter walls, it’s the roof that we see in a house. A roof defines who we are.”
“The growing population follows trends and that is an opportunity for investment in innovative building solutions that match the evolving trends. As Uganda Baati, we have broadened our product basket that combines building solutions of unrivaled durability, superior performance, and remarkable aesthetics.”
“In the world of business, innovation is the key to success. Uganda Baati has been the leading innovator in roof sheets since 1964 and this has been the driving force that has propelled the company forward, enabling us to meet the ever-evolving needs and desires of the customers. Uganda Baati was the first company to set up a galvanizing line in 1964. The company again came first in bringing into the market various tile brands that today permeate the roof landscape in Uganda like Versatile, Romantile, and, Orientile which was only launched last year” Arodi said.
“And today, we proudly introduce a product that embodies the very essence of innovation. It has been crafted with meticulous attention to detail and an unwavering commitment to excellence. We have left no stone unturned in our pursuit of perfection, and the outcome is nothing short of extraordinary.”
The CEO further noted “What makes this product remarkable, is its ability to withstand extreme weather conditions, the material is non-combustible, ensuring protection from any fires. Lifestile® stone coated steel roof tiles are eight times lighter than clay or concrete tiles meaning less strain on the structure, and an easier, faster, and more affordable construction process. This is in addition to its attractive appearance that has a premium finishing and design to satisfy the most discerning homeowner.”
Commenting on the environmental friendliness of the stone-coated roof tiles, Dr. Alan Shonubi, the Uganda Baati Board Chairperson said “The launch of the Lifestile® brand comes in at a time we are strongly pushing the message of sustainability through green manufacturing. Green building is an effort to amplify the positive and mitigate the negative of these effects throughout the entire life cycle of a building. We are transitioning from using building materials that otherwise harm our environment and degrade our natural resources; timber, clay, and the like, to using options that are long-lasting and less harmful to our environment.”
“Lifestile® represents a significant milestone for the company as we continue to pioneer advancements in the roofing and building solution industry. Our commitment to innovation, quality, and customer satisfaction has been the driving force behind our success, and we are confident that the new product will meet the required customer desires,” he concluded.
