Tropical Metal Products (TMP) was founded over 55 years ago on October 1, 1968, by Mr. & Mrs. Easton and Isolin McKinley. TMP is a family-owned and family-managed industrial enterprise.
Today, TMP has grown into one of Jamaica’s largest roofing supplies producers and distributors.
We serve thousands of customers with the same commitment, professionalism, and highest quality products and warm customer service that Easton and Isolin founded our company with in 1968.
The McKinley family hail from Santa Cruz, St. Elizabeth. Easton and Isolin came to Kingston as youngsters during the 1950s to further their education.
After eleven years of working with ALCAN-Sprostons, Easton decided to start his own business. He purchased second-hand equipment and began cutting sheet metal into roofing accessories such as flashing, capping, and gutters.
With the help of his extended family, Easton sourced and purchased land on which to build a factory. They bought one lot of land in Riverton City, the company’s current location, and constructed a 4,000 sq. ft. building and began operation on the 1st of October 1968, employing 3 workers at which time TMP became a reality.
Prior to this, the couple worked out of their carport at home with a bending machine, and lock former which was bought secondhand, making flashing, capping, gutters, and jalousie window blades for the construction industry.
In the late 70s when many Jamaicans were emigrating the McKinleys were busy buying lots adjoining the factory and expanding the business.
TMP now occupies an office space of approximately 55,000 sq. ft. extended to both sides of the road.
