THE EXPERTS IN STEEL CONSTRUCTION
Pat Dunn & Company’s core business is the design, fabrication and installation of structural steel works. Located in the industrial area of Graniteside in Harare, the factory is well positioned in terms of its proximity to some of Harare’s main feeder roads and railway links, as well as its raw material suppliers, thereby ensuring that production costs are as competitive as possible.
Over the years, the company has built up a small, loyal and skilled workforce, and the staff are valued as assets, that need to be maintained and nurtured. Management are cognisant that the resource pool available to them is of critical importance to the sustained growth of the business.
