A manufacturer of adhesives and construction products identifies several crucial factors that the industry should take note of.
Driven by the goal to become an industry leader in the manufacture and supply of tile adhesives, construction products and accessories, Tyl-Pro Adhesives has combined experience of over 60 years in the tile adhesive market. Currently based in Gauteng, Tyl-Pro Adhesives is excited at the prospect of expanding to other areas in South Africa, signifying positive growth in the company.
“Focusing on innovative techniques and approaches, Tyl-Pro Adhesives offer a range of products, such as our colour-coded bag system for easier identification,” highlights Jeffrey Africa, Owner and Managing Director of Tyl-Pro Adhesives, who has more than 26 years of industry experience. “Quality speaks for itself, and in the last number of years of production there hasn’t been a single product failure.”
From its extensive range of products, including tile adhesives, grouts, self-levelling screeds, marbelites, repair mortars, bonding liquids, etc., not to mention the wide range of colour options available, Tyl-Pro Adhesives clearly recognises and acknowledges the crucial role that technology, in combination with innovation, plays in continually developing products that maintain a competitive edge.
“We regard innovation as a continual and integral process in pursuit of superior products and service in the long term,” states Jeffrey. “This being the case, Tyl-Pro Adhesives work hard to achieve technological excellence in all spheres of business, including information systems, production processes and products.”
Jeffrey adds that the company, through implementation of the aforementioned policy, offers lightweight as well as standard ranges. “The lightweight range is eco-friendly certified and provides more coverage than the standard range,” he continues. “When turning to the lightweight option, there is a 25% saving on transport costs, 25% weight reduction on foundations, while also retaining heat for longer. In addition, working with the product and applying it also becomes easier. The product’s applicators can also lay more tiles per day, which in turn simplifies the labour process. The fact that our products emit zero VOCs and also comply to European norms, is something we are extremely proud of, as it sets us apart from other industry players.”
Speaking about the strengths of Tyl-Pro Adhesives, Jeffrey notes that their true strength lies in combining the company’s skills, efforts and dedication. Other attributes include:
• Intimate product knowledge;
• Intimate market knowledge;
• Technological expertise;
• Production expertise;
• Innovative Equipment: new and versatile, incorporating new technology and improved efficiencies;
• Product availability;
• Extensive product range;

• Its BEE profile, which is unique for a company manufacturing tile adhesives and related construction products.
“We deploy our energy towards the achievement of common goals,” concludes Jeffrey. “Energy, enthusiasm and passion are the building blocks of a thriving and healthy company. Each employees’ input is valued by the whole company. Our efforts incite growth and increases output. Working towards the same goals we grow personally as a company.”
