About Ramco Group

Mr Rambhai came to Kenya in the early 1940s from the Gujarat region of India. He started a small hardware store in downtown Nairobi in 1948 and that was the humble beginnings of what is now the Ramco Group. His 3 sons, Kirit, Mahendra and Chandrakant joined the family business after their studies and based on these strong family ties, the group built a solid foundation on which it could grow and expand. Ramco Group’s initial expansion was within the hardware and building supplies industry which the family knew well. However, in 1986, the brothers diversified into both stainless steel and printing with the acquisitions of ASL Steel and Polythene Industries respectively. These investments opened the door into new industries and soon after, further acquisitions were made in these sectors. In 1995, the Group acquired Sai Office Supplies, an office supplies distributor and soon after came investments in the retail side of this sector. To this day, both Kirit and Chadrakant are still very actively involved in the day-to-day running of the Group and their customer-focused philosophy is still at the heart of each group company. Our Vision To be a World Class Conglomerate. Our Mission Statement To excel in every sector we operate in. Our Philosophy "Every Relationship is Family, and Family Comes First” Our Purpose "We enjoy building valuable relationships and creating opportunities for people to grow.” Our Core Values • Honesty & Integrity. • Commitment. • Innovation.
