Coverland is the South African brand of the worldwide Monier Braas Building Group. Coverland history dates back to 1949 when the company, then known as Vereeniging Tiles Ltd, installed the first double action line production tile machine. Over the years Vereeniging Tiles Ltd expanded dramatically and Coverland Roof Tiles was formed in 1976 by the merger of four major concrete roof tile manufacturers.
In December 1998 Coverland Roof Tiles joined forces with Lafarge Roofing. In 2006 Lafarge Roofing acquired 100% of the Kulu Group business, the third largest concrete tile producer in South Africa. Lafarge sold Lafarge Roofing to private investors. The business began operations as an independent company, under the name MONIER Ltd. MONIER Roofing South Africa operates under the brand name Coverland.
Today, with more than 60 years of roofing experience under the belt, Coverland remains the leading concrete roofing material supplier in South Africa. A national footprint of 9 production facilities and 3 depots and ensures that product is readily available to customers throughout Southern Africa. The knowledge and technical expertise held in roofing systems along with support from the Monier Technical Centre in Germany, sets Coverland apart from the competition.
