KNAUF Gypsum Tanzania
Knauf is a synonym for gypsum among construction experts around the globe.
This association of a building material with a manufacturer’s name is not just a coincidence, it is a result of decade of consistent high quality work.
Our group of companies has had a very humble beginning. The family company was established in 1932, when brothers Alfons and Karl Knauf secured the mining rights to gypsum Deposits in the Schengen community (Obermosel) in Germany.
