KTL was originally set up in 1966 as a sawmilling business and began exporting sawn timber in 1975. However, with changing needs from international customers and with the experience built up in the timber industry, KTL started diversifying their business particularly in the downstream activities.
KTL then ventured into timber mouldings in 1979 and started manufacturing lam parquet, initially for the local market and then for export to Europe. In mid-eighties, KTL expanded operations to include finger jointing and lamination of wood, creating a wide range of flooring products. It was only a matter of time before the Company started creating prefinished solid wood flooring and developed the KTL SPORTS FLOORING system which now forms their core business.
Today, KTL has a worldwide customer base, and is also a contract manufacturer for several international brands of wooden flooring.
