Building materials store TTC is going to open a new hypermarket in the Avtchala district of the Georgian capital city of Tbilisi, where all building materials imported by the company will be available under one roof, in a 5,000 sq.m. space.
TTC was founded in 2007 and has been focused on importing building materials needed for interior construction.
“Over time, we have been actively involved in the import of monolithic construction materials and in just a few years we have become one of the leading companies in our field. Today, there is almost no major project not only in the country but also in the Transcaucasus, in which TTC is not involved”, said Commercial Director of the company Valeriane Bazadze.
For its utmost success, the company received in 2020 its first Golden Brand award. Experts and customers both named TTC as their N1 favorite monolithic construction materials in Georgia.
In this interview with the Golden Brand Valeriane Bazadze and Head of the Sales Department of TTC Zurab Gelava talked about the activities of TTC in Georgia.
