A qualified civil engineering technician (T4 Civil) with an IMM, Ferraris has been involved in the construction industry since 1987, first with Grinaker Precast and then Echo Floors as sales and marketing manager and as general manager of Smartstone Midrand. At Grinaker Precast he was responsible for the intellectual property of the company's products, including retaining blocks and stadium seating.
Ferraris has a long association with the Concrete Manufacturers Association (CMA) where he has held the positions of vice president for both the paving and the crb divisions. ReMaCon Products is also licensed to market twoTERRAFORCE crb ranges, the L11 in smooth face and the L18 in split face finish, as well as the erosion control systems, Terrafix 120 blocks, and the Terracrete grass block.
Rocla manufactures precast concrete infrastructural products through an extensive network of factories throughout South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. Rocla can design and manufacture special products. This is made possible through the technical expertise and quality controls the company has in place after many years experience in the pre-cast concrete field.
Rocla has developed the mobile plant concept, which involves the manufacture of products on site in order to minimize transport costs. Although the products are not manufactured in the "factory environment", the attention to quality is not neglected. The SABS guidelines to product quality and manufacture are adhered to, and where possible, the "Standardization Mark" will be applied to the products.
