APEX GROUP Rebrands Piping Division Reaffirming Position as East Africa’s One-Stop-Shop for Construction

Apex Piping Systems, formally known as Ken Aluminium Products (KAP Plastics), has undergone a comprehensive rebranding.  The rebranded company will provide the same quality pipes at affordable prices and will remain as a subsidiary company under Apex Group, but it will feature a new name, logo, and slogan: THE PERFECT FIT.

The rebranding reflects both the evolution of the company as well as its vision for the future. With this corporate rebranding, Apex Piping will focus on providing the market with the most affordable and high quality piping solutions, which has always been the company’s core strength.

Apex Piping’s new branding further enables the company to stand out in the emerging and developing markets where Apex continues to be at the forefront of plumbing innovations.

Apex Piping will introduce a series of new plastic and piping solutions including round pipes, wall plugs, toilet seat covers, garden hosepipes, ferules and tubings.

For nearly 50 years, Apex Steel Ltd has continuously raised the bar in the manufacturing of steel in East Africa, becoming a benchmark of quality and innovation in the construction, engineering and fabrication industries.

Encouraged by the company’s sustained success in producing high quality steel, Apex directors made the decision to acquire KAP Plastics, now rebranded as Apex Piping, in 2010, effectively becoming a one-stop shop for all construction-related needs in Kenya.


In addition to plastics and steel, Apex Group trades in more than 4,000 quality products to the general construction industry and are the proud distributors for world-class brands such as Graco, Grohe, Zinga, Comap, Fosroc and JK Wally Putty and Paint.

Graco is a worldwide leader in fluid handling. Our High-volume, low-pressure (HVLP) sprayers provide the highest level of transfer efficiency. This means more paint reaches the spraying surface, resulting in less masking and dust sheet usage.

GROHE kitchen faucets are designed to last a lifetime. They are subjected to extensive life tests, which simulate years of daily use to ensure that all of Grohe faucets deliver perfect performance for years to come.

Did you know that ZINGA can be applied on site, in the same way as paints? ZINGA can be applied in a wide variety of weather conditions and has an unlimited shelf life.

We all know that water quality is synonymous with quality of life. COMAP eliminates scaling, filters water and traps pollution, eliminates unpleasant chlorine taste, reduces the presence of pesticides, disinfects the water through UVC radiation.

And finally, Fosroc is a leading international manufacturer and supplier of high-performance chemicals for the construction industry, with a particular focus on concrete and cement. Fosroc offers a complete range of Construction Chemical solutions including cement additives and grinding aids, concrete admixtures, waterproofing systems, performance grouts, concrete repair systems, sealants, protective coatings and industrial flooring systems.

Apex Group doesn’t just supply world-renowned products, they deliver complete construction solutions – from advice and training to site support.
