Our start , history and adventure of Tiles…

In 2004, Mr He Qian, holding an MBA degree from the CEIBS and a Bachelors degree in Ceramic Manufacturing from Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute, with an entrepreneurial spirit, founded the company that was to become the Guangdong KITO Ceramics Group Co. Ltd. . It all began with one of the first two Collections that he created, manufactured and sold to worldwide customers: IT Stone & DG Series. 
Breaking the boundaries of creativity is a reason why the Stone & Concrete Cement look is still an enduring and everlasting trend today.. With this, the founder of the Group forged the first link in what is still the DNA of KITO: Research and Innovation in the Service of Beauty.
