In pursuit of improved quality of its products and growth in the tiles industry, CDK Integrated Industries, a leading manufacturer of premium porcelain tiles in Nigeria, is seeking the collaboration of tilers who are the middlemen between the producers and end-users.

The company, which hosted the tilers under the aegis of the Tilers Association of Nigeria, said the visit provided a platform for dialogue between the industry stakeholders with a focus on leveraging each other’s strengths to drive innovation and growth.

The visit also served as an avenue for fruitful discussions on possible synergies and joint ventures in tile manufacturing and distribution just as it provided an opportunity for useful discussions and a firsthand exploration of the company’s latest offerings.

CDK also leveraged the visit to showcase its latest innovations, including the cutting-edge range of swimming pool tiles which were recently introduced to the market while the tilers used the opportunity to explore the new offerings firsthand, gaining insights into the unique features and benefits that the new products offer.

“We are appreciative of your support in all our endeavours and activities. Our discussions were insightful and witnessing CDK’s commitment to quality and innovation firsthand has reinforced our confidence in solidifying our partnership,” Oluwarewaju Hassan, national president of Tilers Association of Nigeria, assured.

Their expertise not only enhances the quality of their work, but also ensures that clients are well-informed and confident in their choices. It is imperative that tilers convey professionalism and confidence when engaging with clients, as this fosters trust and reinforces the value proposition of the CDK brand,” he said.

Bernard Longe, CDK’s Managing Director, said he was excited about the collaboration possibilities with the Tilers Association of Nigeria, saying, “we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to host the esteemed members of the Tilers Association of Nigeria at our facility; the visit serves as a testament to our ongoing commitment to fostering collaboration and driving innovation in the industry.
