ROKO Construction Limited was founded in 1969 and is today one of Uganda's leading Construction and Civil Engineering Groups. The late Max Rohrer and Rainer Kohler, with 50 years combined experience in Africa, made a commitment to assist in Uganda's prosperity and development when they founded ROKO. Together with technical and commercial directors and over 40 qualified civil and site engineers, Rohrer and Kohler led ROKO to the forefront of the construction industry to emerge as the principal contractor in Uganda, and by 2001, they operated only in Uganda and Tanzania but Uganda has now developed to be a hub for activities in neighbouring countries and they have now heavily invested in Rwanda, Eastern Congo and South Sudan. ROKO Construction Limited had groomed into a self-sufficient company in the majority of construction disciplines and provides employment for an average of 1800 people, placing great emphasis on training its technicians and craftsmen to produce an exceptionally high standard of workmanship. Materials are produced locally and from the Preferential Trade Area wherever possible, and imports are facilitated by ROKO's association with the SAI Trading Company in Europe. They have a wide variety and quantity of earthmoving and construction equipment available, including traxcavators, bulldozers, dumptrucks, compactors, dragline/cranes to execute most types of Civil/Road works, together with all equipment necessary for general construction of high-rise buildings.
