Coosal’s invests in $50m head office in Madras Settlement
In a tiny village called Madras, one of the country’s two largest asphalt pavers, Coosal’s, has erected a $50 million “smart” state-of-the-art building and expects decision-making and productivity to benefit from the move. Sieunarine Coosal, group executive chairman, said at an interview at his spanking new office in Madras on Friday: “We’ve made a strategic move to set up the corporate head offices on Madras Settlement Road in Chin Chin, Cunupia. We operated in the Curepe area and our head office was there for the last 50-60 years, so we’ve actually made a strategic move, in coming out from the foothills of the Northern Range into the central plains. Moreso, we see it as decentralisation.”
The ribbon-cutting opening of the building took place yesterday, but the group chairman, his son, and top company directors had been soft testing the building by occupying it for roughly six weeks before.
“One of the reasons for that is that we have our biggest workforce and work centre here in Madras. Here, we have a block of 50 acres of land and housed here will be our asphalt plant, all the laboratory facilities. We have the maintenance division, a machine shop, garaging facilities, a service bay, the main general stores for the company, concrete plant operation, block plant operation, the complete transport department, bitumen tanker wagons, cement carriers, fleet of transport lorries, fleet of concrete mixers.”
