When Tile City & Home Centre was founded in 1999, our founders, Jaleel and Guilda Handal, started by selling tiles out of two 20ft containers on Constant Spring Road. This dynamic husband and wife team began with the vision of becoming Jamaica’s go-to location for outstanding tiles and flooring solutions, and – despite fierce competition – emerged as key players in the industry.
Four years later, in 2003, the company joined forces with the Do It Best brand and we expanded our offerings to include home improvement products such as paints, plumbing, garden products, housewares and services. We also moved to our Ferry, Mandela Highway location which houses our main warehouse and wholesale/distribution center.
Our company is family-owned and operated. Victor Handal, Director of Special Projects and Business Development, joined the team in 2006 and focused efforts on specializing in quality brands. Soon thereafter, we became leading distributors for Moen and the Pratt & Lambert lines of products. His sister, Melissa Moses, Director of Projects and Human Resources joined our team in 2012.
Positive growth allowed for expansion once again, and the acquisition of three acres of land on Constant Spring Road saw us adding another location where our head office is also housed. Our 20,000 square-foot Constant Spring Road location has allowed us to offer a variety of home improvement, Flooring and home décor products all under one roof.
Thanks to our Price Match Promise, we are able to match any advertised local competitor's price on identical items in stock. This allows us to consistently provide our customers with products and services that do not sacrifice quality at incredible prices.
In 2013, the company became the first and exclusive authorized distributor of Kohler products in Jamaica, and in 2014, we started construction of a state-of-the-art, 5000 square foot Flagship Kohler showroom. Our newest addition will be the largest Kohler showroom in the region.
Today, Tile City & Home Centre is Jamaica’s leading supplier for the hospitality and commercial industry, and the go-to name in quality flooring and plumbing finishes.
