Success Story: All-Weather Roads Engineering

All-Weather Roads Engineering

They are a proudly South African born, international start-up company, with a revolutionary innovative road product called AWRE Resilient Tar (Asphalt), for building and engineering long-life roads that are resilient to extreme weather events.

The All-Weather Road is a next-generation smart road, that is adaptable and resilient, thus ensuring an efficient and reliable transport system, which is essential for society and transport of goods.

Founded and lead by Mr Emmanuel Mothabi the vision of the business is to have global reach in smart roads engineering and construction projects and to lead the manufacturability and supply of this Proudly South African resilient asphalt worldwide.

Needless to that that the AWRE company has been working hard and has formed strategic partners with astute companies such as:

  • CSIR-South Africa
  • Gautrans (Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport)
