Lots of experience
Lots of heritage
Every business has a beginning, and ours dates back three generations ago. Founded by Mr Ah Chow Li Tung Sang, the company was popularised as Chantier Dragon D’Or. Back then Chantier Dragon D’or sold quincaillerie and hardware items. As the company focused more on timber products and derivatives, business flourished as it was being passed on to younger and more dynamic generations, who brought on innovation. Today, trading as LOTS, it is still run by the same family and they strive to be even closer to their clients by providing state of the art quality products and excellent service.
Lots of responsibilities
At LOTS, we challenge ourselves every day to find new ways to embed sustainability throughout our business. This is why we want to show our responsibility in environmental protection by promoting wood as a renewable and environmentally friendly building material.
Initially trading as Chantier Dragon D'or, the company was set up as a family business dealing as a quincaillerie, hardware shop and timber shop. Operations mainly on Arsenal Road and Farquar Road in Port Louis.
