KBL

 

KBL Management Services cc was formed in 2001 to manage the affairs of a joint venture company importing granite from Brazil and exporting quarrying equipment to Brazil/Argentina. The JV was with a Brazilian importer/exporter, Milus and the JV was known as African Brazilian Corporation. African Brazilian Corporation ceased importing granite and concentrated on exports in 2003.

 

In 2005, KBL Management Services, through its Tile and Slab Division took on the regional distributorship of the High Performance Quartz Surface material from the Czech Republic manufacturer, Technistone®. In the period since launching Technistone® in South Africa, it has become a leading brand in Quartz Surfaces and has redefined the countertop market.

 

KBL Tile and Slab continues to distribute Brazilian Granites from Ideal Stones based in Braganca Paulista outside Sao Paolo - Brazil.
