It’s about time to start thinking outside the box when it comes to specifying your next bill of materials. The world’s most precious resources are being depleted every day. Today’s consumers need to take a close look at the materials we use in construction and development. Cariluxe offers solutions to help reduce waste, control landfill usage and create beautiful projects using engineered materials that last. Our goal is to help reduce the annual maintenance line-item on every development – whether it’s a super high-end Caribbean resort, or your grandparent’s home renovation. Give us a chance. The possibilities are endless.
Cariluxe, established in 2007 was founded by Johan and Kelly Rostad, a native Bahamian. Kelly was born in Freeport and has called the Islands home ever since.
Surrounded by sand, salt and the sea – not to mention the occasional hurricane, and invasive pests such as termites, Johan and Kelly saw the need to provide impenetrable and sustainable building materials to the Caribbean Islands. They started a grassroots effort, meeting with local architects and builders bringing awareness not only to Cariluxe products, but also to the invaluable services they could provide. Today they are sought after by top architects and builders of choice resorts and custom homes.
Cariluxe hires a multitude of Bahamian workers and believes in supporting the local economy to further preserve and promote the Islands and their native culture. Cariluxe supports local charitable organizations, including relief efforts following the devastation of Hurricane Dorian. Cariluxe has also been an annual sponsor (since its inception) of the Eleuthera All that Jazz Festival, in support of the Haynes Library, which provides and promotes educational opportunities and programs in the Bahamas.
