ACTIVE Home Centre (Active Traders Limited) is Jamaica’s #1 home enhancement retailer, providing customers with the widest selection of tiles, roofing systems, bathroom fixtures, ready-to-assemble kitchen cabinets, indoor and outdoor furniture, indoor and outdoor lighting, etc…all in one place and at GREAT prices!
Active Traders Limited opened its doors in 1995. The company started its operations at Skibo Avenue in Kingston as a wholesale distributor of wood windows and doors, selling directly to hardware stores.
In 1997, the company changed its business model and ventured into selling direct to consumers by opening the company’s first retail showroom (as well as a larger warehouse facility) in Marketplace (formerly the Challenge Centre). To meet growing demand Active Traders began offering ceramic and porcelain tiles and all related items (i.e. thinset, grout and sealers) as well as bathroom fixtures to consumers.
