Our Story

Active Home Centre is a company driven by growth and passion in order to help each and every customer find the perfect finish for their home. Active Home Centre started out small, but with determination, the company grew to where it is today. 

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. 

The onset of tiling trends shortly thereafter presented the opportunity to reach consumers directly in the local market. 

 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.

 A few years following this, in 2003, the company grew even further and sought to find a retail space to match our expanding needs. This led us to Dunrobin Avenue where we added granite, other high quality stones and more to our product line.

After establishing ourselves at our Dunrobin location for just under 10 years, we went a step further with our expansion and constructed a new state-of-the-art showroom at 84 Constant Spring Road in Kingston which opened in May 2013.

To differentiate us further in the market, our new home, appropriately titled Active Home Centre was created with the objective of housing a one stop shop for home finishes in order to make the experience easier for our customers. These departments house products needed for every aspect of your home such as flooring, countertops, bathrooms, kitchens, doors, windows, lighting, fans, furniture and home decor.
