Back in the late ’40s, a young man started trading in wholesale suiting materials. The company was called Nandlal and Co Ltd. Over the years as his family grew he decided to renovate his family home. They lamented on how there was no place in Kenya to buy the contemporary, affordable finishing products they required. And from there Tile & Carpet Centre found its beginnings.
Passionate to make their house a home and make these designs available to others, the family imported some simple tiles and sold them from a small, temporary outfit. They travelled throughout Europe buying directly from ceramicists and factories making simple sanitaryware. Overtime the small temporary outfit grew to become one of Kenya’s foremost building &interior product companies, Tile &Carpet Centre.
Committed to continuously reinventing itself, 2016 marked a major milestone for Tile and Carpet Centre. Rebranded as T&C, the company heralded its continued dedication to setting the pace in offering creative solutions for East Africa’s building and interior products landscape.
Tile and Carpet Centre has grown to become one of Kenya’s premier suppliers of building &interior finishing products.

T&C is committed to helping address critical challenges faced by our society. We extend our arm in philanthropy to the under-privileged in society by providing financial or other assistance so as to reduce the burdens of poverty.

We extend aid to homes or other establishments that provide relief to the aged, orphans,widows and disabled members of our society.
Appropriate health services are largely inaccessible to some in our society. We are committed to the promotion of health and medical relief by extending cash and other assistance for the development, improvement, extension and running of hospitals, clinics, dispensaries and support all projects related to health and human suffering for the under-privileged.
We are committed to the promotion of education by way of cash or kind assistance for the development, improvement and extension of schools or colleges. For the disadvantaged but deserving students we endeavour to support them with tuition fees, books and other incentives as well as award scholarships for study, research and apprenticeship. We are committed to supporting innovative and effective projects to eradicate the youth unemployment challenge in the country by empowering them through internships, on-the job training and entrepreneurship programs.
As T&C we pledge our commitment to continuing delivering on our CSR endeavours as we have over the past 50 years.
