Knauf is a German manufacturer of gypsum plasterboard that has operations in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. We use local materials to produce high-quality drywall products using German technology. These plasterboard panels are made for the Tanzanian construction industry. Knauf takes pride in the quality of products and services that we provide to local customers.

We have a world-class research and development division that always strives to improve our products and offerings. Our dedicated team of researchers has developed fire-resistant, moisture-resistant, ecologically-sound structures and earthquake-resistant materials. These construction solutions are internationally patented and are now available to Tanzanian contractors.

Besides our range of plasterboard products, Knauf also manufactures skimming plaster, metal profiles and insulation for wall and ceiling construction. Our existing customers have confidence in our products. Our products have been used in many major construction projects, including Terminal III at Julius Nyerere International Airport and the Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest building. In addition, we strive to be a reliable, credible and transparent building materials supplier.

We understand that the building industry cannot be sustained or make progress if natural resources are being depleted in the process. Knauf seeks to create construction materials and solutions that are environmentally-friendly and meet strict international standards for energy efficiency, affordability, performance and quality. Our plasterboard products are recyclable. Contact us for your plasterboard requirements and construction supplies.
