Tile and Carpet Centre (TACC) and their sister companies Ceiling Aluminium and Partitioning Solutions (CAAPS) and Plumbing Wholesalers and Suppliers have recently opened their 21st outlet in Zimbabwe conveniently situated at 100B King George Road in Avondale. It’s across the road from Avondale Primary School and just next door to Casa Mia restaurant. The 21st branch is a significant milestone proving that the company has really grown up and come of age.
It also makes it so much easier for shoppers from the northern and western suburbs of Harare to view their fantastic range of tiles and carpets, plumbing and sanitary ware, and their range of aluminium and glass fittings and fixtures. The TACC group of companies are now truly a one-stop destination for both contractors and home DIY enthusiasts whether for new construction projects or renovations.
TACC and CAAPS currently have five branches across Harare, with their flagship branch located at 189 Samora Machel Avenue in Eastlea, their head office at 56 McChlery Avenue also in Eastlea and other branches further along Samora Machel Avenue and in Graniteside. They also have other outlets in Bulawayo, Mutare, Masvingo, Kwekwe, Kadoma and Gweru and even in smaller towns like Zvishavane, Bindura, Chinhoyi, Victoria Falls, Chiredzi, Gwanda and Rusape. There’s really nowhere across Zimbabwe where you can’t find a branch near you.
Apart from supplying the best quality tiles, carpets, aluminium and glass products, and plumbing and sanitary ware they also offer an exclusive design advisory service recommending the best products for your project – whether it’s a major housing development, a commercial office block or a simple home renovation. There are even plans in the pipeline for their new Design Centre in Eastlea which will offer customers a unique service – assistance and suggestions for the best finishes, the best ‘look’, and the best budget.
TACC is a proudly Zimbabwean company established in 1999 so they have over 20 years of expertise serving and supplying the local market. TACC prides themselves on supplying only the finest quality and most up to date range of porcelain and ceramic tiles from Brazil, Italy, Spain and China and other suppliers around the world. They also supply both laminate and vinyl flooring as well as a huge range of carpeting for residential and commercial applications, including fitted carpets, loose carpets and rugs. They also supply all the necessary accessories like tile adhesives, grouting and even tile cutters to ensure that you get the best end result for your investment.
Apart from superior floor finishes TACC also supply wall tiles and their unique range of wall cladding for both interior and exterior applications. Their range of stone tile wall cladding is fashionable and right up to date with current international décor trends. Their range of wood look ceramic tiles offers the timeless appeal of timber with the durability and ease of maintenance offered by tiles.
If you’re renovating your bathroom or kitchen TACC can supply all your tiling needs as well as all your plumbing requirements and even aluminium and glass shower doors, partitions, windows and even glass and aluminium skylights. Aluminium and glass doors are right on trend now for opening up your interiors to the outdoor space, but architects and interior designers are increasingly using glass and aluminium doors to define internal spaces – especially now that open plan design is so popular.
You can open your lounge to the kitchen/dining space or separate it when needed. Great for controlling both temperature and noise and adding privacy when required. Aluminium and glass partitions can be made to order in a range of colours and finishes to satisfy the most discerning designers whether for homes, shop fronts and partitions or office complexes. In fact, TACC often work in close conjunction with architects, engineers, interior designers and decorators and home DIY enthusiasts. If your new venture seems a little daunting TACC can recommend teams of approved artisans and shopfitters to complete your project.
The new Avondale branch features a custom designed showroom and warehouse with easy access away from the congested city centre, safe and secure parking, and seven day a week shopping convenience. For your one stop shop for tiling, plumbing and accessories shopping TACC is the place to visit.
Call centre and WhatsApp numbers for enquiries: 0716 348 955/0716 348 911.
Or drop into their new showroom at 100B King George Road, Avondale.
