Business Daily reported that Jumbo Steel Mills has completed construction of a Sh1 billion factory expected to create more than 500 direct jobs for locals of Rabai sub-county. Managing director Mr Indravadan Patel said the facility would produce 150 metric tonnes of steel a day. He added that the second and third phases of the plant, which has already begun production, will be completed next year to increase capacity.

Mr Patel said that “The first phase of the mill is ready. We are also adding another one at the site which will be complete by next year. We already produced 30 tonnes yesterday.”

The steel mill, which sits on 15 acres, will use imported iron ore from India, South Africa and China, among other countries to manufacture steel products.

Kilifi governor Amason Kingi said the steel plant would be a big boost to the local economy as he encouraged other companies to invest in the county.
