Instarmac making inroads in Algeria

Instarmac, and their Algerian partner, Disalg Sarl, have recently been awarded a €1 million contract for the installation of manhole covers in Algeria with the world renowned Ultracrete Instant Road Repair® and Ultracrete PY5.

The 5 year contract will see Ultracrete Instant Road Repair® and PY5 supplied to SEOR-Societé de l’eau et de l’assainissement d’Oran, the water company for Algeria’s second largest city, Oran. Both products are manufactured by Instarmac and distributed by Disalg Sarl in Algeria.

This contract will ensure that all manhole installations in Oran, Algeria, will be completed with products that are proven, trusted and fit for purpose. These high specification materials are tested and independently approved to provide a minimum service life of 5 years – which means no costly repeat visits for the contractors and minimal disruption to motorists and pedestrians.

On winning this contact, Angus Longward, Export Sales Manager for Instarmac, commented: “We are delighted to bring our award-winning ironwork repair solutions to Algeria.”
