At Chandaria Industries Limited, we produce a wide range of paper products. These are available at all leading supermarkets and retail shops across Kenya. The Chandaria Group of Industries is a family-owned business (with the three key players being Maganlal and his two sons, Dinesh and Mahesh) that relies on a strong professional team being involved in every sector of specialization. A committed team of senior, middle and junior managers ensure a drive of excellence in all the departments such as global research, production, sales and marketing and finance. It is a force to be reckoned with in the printing, packaging and paper converting sector with exports to Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and other countries besides local sales. It obviously did not start that way. Maganlal M. Chandaria founded the company in Mombasa in 1947. The company manufactured paper drinking straws using a converting machine (operated by Mr. Chandaria himself), followed by the manufacture of adding machine rolls, toilet paper, teleprints and other products before the re-location to Nairobi in 1974. In 1985, the volumes of demand justified the installation of paper mill to manufacture various grades of paper and tissue. In 1987, the group purchased Kenya Paper Mills from Lonrho. Madhupaper was added to the group in 1988. Tanpack Tissues in Tanzania is a recent addition to the group. The portfolio also includes Colour Packaging (which makes specialized products for a niche market), Guardian Bank, etc. Our Mission Statement "Our goal at Chandaria Industries Ltd. is to continually improve our environmental performance, at the same time provide our clients with quality paper & tissue products from sustainable and recyclable paper.
