In the beginning of new millennium inspired and pioneered by Mr. Md. Shirajul Islam Mollah, MP a leading business person and banker, a group of investors from Bangladesh took initiative for a project for manufacturing modern Tiles in Bangladesh. Being aware of the fact that in the field of Ceramic Technology China has got several century old expertise, Mr. Md. Shirajul Islam Mollah endeavored for Chinese participation in such project in Bangladesh and consequently CHINA-BANGLA CERAMIC INDUSTRIES LTD. (CBC) was incorporated in 26 June 2001 as a joint venture in private sector between Bangladesh and The People's Republic of China. At the time of establishment CBC was the largest Chinese investment in any public limited company in Bangladesh and Mr. Md. Shirajul Islam Mollah became the Managing Director of the Company. The company started commercial production in August 2002, producing Ceramic & Homogeneous tiles of international standard in its factory at Tarabo, Rupgonj, Narayanganj, Bangladesh.
CBC has selected machineries for its production line considering that Bangladesh is in the tropical zone. The PRESS, which is the core of the whole installation, has been imported from SACMI, Italy being the best of its kind in the world. Under the dynamic participation of its Chinese promoters and experts CBC's production lines were planned and equipped with world's most modern equipment. From the very beginning CBC is successfully producing a wide range of Wall and Floor tiles including Homogeneous, Decor and Border tiles with innovative designs in different sizes to cater the market demand with affordable and competitive price. CBC installed a SOPHISTICATED CUTTING TECHNOLOGY to maintain size accuracy of its Homogeneous tiles.
