The Tononoka Group of Companies is a privately owned group whose business activities began in 1980 with the formation of Tononoka Hardware Limited that became a major supplier of steel products in the Kenyan market. The Tononoka Group has earned an enviable and reputable position in terms of quality, cost-effectiveness and customer service over a period of time.
The initial growth of the trading business opened an opportunity for commencement of a small manufacturing facility and the idea blossomed into the formation of Tononoka Steels Limited in March 1991. Tononoka Steels Limited is now a major producer and supplier of Black and Galvanized Pipes, Hollow Sections (Round, Square and Rectangular), Channels, Beams, Profiles, M.S. Sheets, Z-Purlins, Flats and Angles. The Plant and Corporate Offices are based at North Airport Road in Embakasi and employ around 200 personnel.

Tononoka Rolling Mills Limited plays a very important role in the environment by converting waste metal scrap into valuable reusable construction materials such as Reinforcement Steel (Round, twisted and square bars), Mild Steel Flat Bars and Angle Irons.
