INTRODUCTION
Bitumen World (Pvt) Ltd was incorporated in Bulawayo in July 2012. The idea of starting a blacktop surfacing company in Zimbabwe had occurred to the founder Andre Zietsman at least two years before as he felt the time was right for another construction company in the country and thought there was a gap in the
Market place when it came to blacktop surfacing.

His idea finally came to fruition when he enlisted the services of his two fellow directors Busisa Moyo and Duncan Smith and convinced them both of the merits of his idea.

Whilst attempting to register the company name of choice and before any personnel were employed a bitumen distributor, self-propelled chip spreader, rotary broom and 60 tonnes of mobile bitumen storage were purchased.

Unable to register the company names of choice it was decided to purchase an existing shelf company and Bitumen World (Pvt) Ltd was born.

The head office of Bitumen World (Pvt) Ltd is located in Harare at 30 George Avenue Msasa. The property is large and comes complete with ample office space and purpose built workshops. This property had previously been used by Tarphalt Paving and was purpose built to cater for the needs of a large construction company.

There is a subsidiary branch office in Bulawayo which is located in Donnington. Although nowhere near as big as the Harare premises it is sufficient to cater for the volume of work in and around Bulawayo.

Bitumen World (Pvt) Ltd complies in all respects with the indigenization requirements of Zimbabwe.
