Our mission is to offer the roofing, cladding and light steel frame building industries in Southern Africa a comprehensive range of quality fasteners and consumables at competitive prices, backed by excellent service and expert advice through a national network of Kare branches and distributors.
Kare Industrial Suppliers has established a reputation as market leaders for high quality, innovative fastening solutions for industrial and commercial roofing in Southern Africa. Our 25 years of industry experience, guaranteed products, impeccable service, and most importantly commitment to safety and integrity ensures that we consistently meet the needs of a dynamic market.
Our commitment to the industry to improve and standardise the quality and installation methods of roofing and light steel frame products used in South Africa has remained steadfast as we established independent testing facilities and methods that ensure that fasteners sold into the SA market conform to the required standards; and we believe that education of the roofing cladding and steel framing industries about the crucial role fasteners play in this segment of construction is critical.
We were instrumental in drafting the current version of SANS 1273 (roofing fasteners) and are currently involved in the revision of this standard. As a result of the 2009 version the corrosion resistance of fasteners was highlighted and with the assistance of the major roll formers, the use of quality fasteners has improved significantly.
We are active members on the technical committees of SAMCRA (South African Metal Roofing & Cladding Association), SASSFA, (Southern Africa Light Steel Frame Building Association) as well as the Corrossion Institute of South Africa.
