Cuentas Signs Supply Agreement with Renco USA for Affordable Housing Projects
Renco USA Patented Construction System is Hurricane, Earthquake, Mildew and Termite resistant.
MIAMI BEACH, FL / ACCESSWIRE / March 1, 2023 / Cuentas, Inc. (Nasdaq:CUEN & CUENW) ("Cuentas") has signed a 10 year supply agreement with Renco USA, Inc ("Renco"), to provide its patented building materials for new, sustainable rental housing projects. Renco is an innovative green construction technology company that has a patented MCFR (Mineral Composite Fiber Reinforced) Construction System which provides cost efficiency, reduced build time, and sustainable benefits.
Renco's system is hurricane proof up to Category 5, which is a major benefit for developing housing projects in the South Florida market and other hurricane prone areas where Cuentas is planning to develop projects.
Renco's system is also earthquake resistant and the company is now providing the Turkish government with a long term housing solution to rebuild cities and areas recently affected by catastrophic M7.8 & M7.5 earthquakes and multiple aftershocks.
Renco USA was the supplier of building technology and materials for the first affordable housing project in the USA using its MCFR system. The Lakewood Village project is an affordable multi-family real estate development located at Palm Beach County.
Renco USA has the exclusive rights in the USA to the patented process. The Renco Wall, Floor and Roofing System is a unique MCFR Building System that creates interlocking, fiber reinforced, composite building blocks and other construction related products that can be connected in an almost limitless variety of designs. Renco's system can be used to create homes, apartment buildings, hotels, office buildings, warehouses, infrastructure products and more.
Cuentas recently disclosed its 6% equity position in the Lakewood Village project, that used Renco's construction system. Cuentas has now formed "CuentasCasa" as a new division that is now planning on developing additional affordable housing projects in Florida and other areas around the US as many housing markets are pricing the local workers out of affordable living spaces due to quickly rising rental rates and home purchase prices.
"Cuentas' recent acquisition in the Lakewood project was the first step to develop this very strategic relationship with Renco USA as their patented technology should revolutionize the affordable housing construction market, especially in Florida where hurricanes are a formidable, yearly threat," stated Arik Maimon, Co-founder and CEO of Cuentas. "The relationship with Renco USA should be instrumental in supporting new areas of business development for Cuentas, as we follow our original goal of providing solutions for the unbanked, underbanked and underserviced residents of the US." added Maimon.
"Cuentas is very excited to gain access to Renco USA's game-changing construction technology as it is "Green To The Core", stressing its Sustainability and Eco-Friendly components as it uses naturally occurring raw and recycled materials to build self-supporting, efficient, structurally sound single and multi-family dwellings," stated Co-founder and President, Michael De Prado. "Renco's patented construction technology can produce lower cost, strong, hurricane resistant (up to Cat 5), fire resistant, water resistant, termite resistant and even earthquake resistant (Seismic Cat A & B - soon C, D & E) apartment buildings that are becoming more necessary as natural disasters and extreme conditions become more prevalent." added De Prado.
"As Renco USA, we are very proud of the technology and sustainability benefits that we have developed over the past 12 years," stated Engin Yesil, co-founder of Renco USA. Using Renco's MCFR system in building design eliminates the need for lumber, steel or concrete, which are major sources of deforestation and CO2 contamination worldwide." added Yesil.
