To transform lives by giving access to water and sanitation and reducing non-revenue water for a sustainable Africa.
To become East Africa’s leading pipe manufacturing company, offering a 360° solution for the water sector, focusing on innovation and an uncompromising commitment to quality.
The story began in 1978 when Apex Piping Systems Ltd, formerly known as KAP Plastics, was founded in Industrial Area in Nairobi, Kenya.
The company initially focused on the importation, marketing, and distribution of aluminum products, specializing in injection molded plastics and the production of household products such as plastic hangers, jugs, plates, and rubber door stoppers.
Encouraged by the parent company’s sustained success in producing high quality steel, Apex Steel directors made the decision to acquire KAP Plastics, in 2010, effectively becoming a one-stop shop for all construction-related needs in Kenya. The company was later rebranded to Apex Piping Systems in 2018.
In 2004, Apex Piping became the first company in East Africa to make Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Poly Propylene Random (PPR), and High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipes, radically changing the plumbing industry from galvanized pipes to plastic, thus saving plumbers substantial time and money.
PPR, trademarked as ‘Hydro-flo’, is manufactured using only virgin materials, without any additives, making it the perfect fit for customers who are particular about quality and durability.
Hydro-Flo has been awarded KEBS certification and is the preferred choice for plumbers and contractors looking for quality and durability. It’s manufactured from a virgin material with no fillers or additives, ensuring sustainability in quality and performance to last over 50 years.
Following Apex Piping’s seamless integration into the Apex Steel family, the company has continued to be at the forefront of plumbing innovations, introducing a series of new plastic and piping solutions to the Kenyan market including round pipes, wall plugs, toilet seat covers, garden hose pipes, ferrules, and tubings.
The group’s unwavering commitment to quality led to the growth of the manufacturing division for PPR, PVC (drainage pipes, electrical conduits, pressure pipes, and rainwater downpipes) and HDPE pipes at its state of the art manufacturing facilities in Athi River under stringent quality measures and manufacturing direction.
These pipes and fittings are marketed under the brand name ‘Apex Piping’.
Water is the essence of life and it should only be handled with the world’s best piping solutions.
