Tatu Woodworks, a company specialising in European-standard joinery services, has begun operations at Tatu City, the 5,000-acre mixed-use Special Economic Zone (SEZ) on Nairobi’s doorstep.

With decades of international experience and deep technical expertise, the company will deliver turnkey solutions, from concept and design to joinery for homeowners, developers, architects, and interior designers.

As part of its inaugural projects, Tatu Woodworks will fabricate kitchen cabinets using European standard boards for Unity One, a stylish residential development by Unity Homes in Tatu City.

“We are thrilled to introduce Tatu Woodworks to the market,” says Erol Cako, General Manager of Tatu Woodworks. “Based in the Tatu City Special Economic Zone, we use modern machinery and the latest techniques to ensure the best quality services, results, and timelines for our clients. We are excited to work with Unity Homes as they strive for high-quality and affordable living spaces.”

Tatu Woodworks offers custom kitchen design and installation, as well as doors, windows, wooden cladding, wardrobes, office fit-outs, and bathroom vanities.

“We are delighted to partner with Tatu Woodworks on the Unity One project,” says Unity Homes Executive Director Jason Horsey. ” Our apartments have been thoughtfully designed to offer maximum comfort, convenience, and functionality. The modern and stylish kitchen has sleek appliances and ample counter space for cooking and entertaining. The kitchen cabinets from Tatu Woodworks align perfectly with our vision for creating exceptional living spaces.”

The joinery industry in Kenya has seen significant growth in recent years but faces challenges such as unqualified artisans and limited investment in modern equipment and materials. Backed by Rendeavour, the owner and developer of Tatu City, with operations across five countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, Tatu Woodworks benefits from the latest technologies, skills and facilities.

Tatu Woodworks will address the growing demand for high-quality joinery solutions in Kenya’s burgeoning real estate market, including Tatu City, which is already home to over 5,000 residents, and 4,500 pupils and students in Tatu City’s schools, which include Crawford International School and Nova Pioneer Primary and Secondary.

More than 78 local, regional and global businesses are operational or under development in Tatu City’s business-friendly location, including CCI Global, Heineken, Dormans, Copia, Cooper K-Brands, Grit Real Estate Income Group, Twiga Foods, Freight Forwarders Solutions, ADvTECH, Friendship Group and Davis & Shirtliff.
