ABC Emporio, our authorized distributor, opened a new Tanzania showroom in Dar es Salaam, the most populous city in East Africa and the biggest in Tanzania, on 9 February 2018.As global business solution distributor for high-end sanitary ware, tiles, and building materials, ABC Emporio caters to high-end consumers, investors in real estate, developers of hotels and in the hospitality industry, resort owners, and people who are looking to furnish their luxury residential apartments. Although the showroom is not an exclusive Kohler showroom, it sports predominately the Kohler brand and is a great debut for our products and services in the country.Choosing Dar es Salaam, also called the ‘house of peace’, as a base in East Africa is a long-term strategy for both ABC Emporio and us. The city is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. According to some sources, it will be the second largest city on earth by 2100. In Tanzania, Dar es Salaam is the center of finance, arts and entertainment, and fashion. It is also the port of access for the land-locked neighboring countries Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, and Zambia.The new showroom presents the most innovative bathroom technology. ‘The sanitary ware industry is evolving along with technology, and we are here to give Tanzanians a variety of quality products,’ ‘as we not only carry high-end products but also affordable, yet elegant products so that a wider range of the Tanzanian market can have options,’ says ABC Emporio Group Chairman Mohammed Hadani during the opening ceremony. Salil Sadanandan, President K&B South Asia and EMEA, added: ‘we realized the potential especially in East Africa and have subsequently established a presence in Uganda, Kenya and now Tanzania.’
Some of these new products on display are Veil Intelligent Toilet, DTV+ Digital showering system, Composed and Avid faucet collections.
In honor of this neighborhood, we invited two renown Tanzanian artists to create unique art pieces for the grand opening of the showroom. Kassim Kisoma and Ally Mbalami got their inspiration for their creation by the name of the neighborhood and the Artist Editions Marrakesh™ faucet and sink.
The showroom is located in the Morocco Area on New Bagmoyo Road in the Regent Estate in Dar es Salaam.
