AA LAQUIS Is Diversifying The Company Into A New, consumer centred division.
Food, drinks, personal care and other Fast Moving Consumer Goods are essentials in every homes and it is our intention to provide high quality, value added products that will enhance the quality of life of Caribbean consumers. In fact, we are committed to only selling products that we would personally use in our own homes.
We are a well-established distributor in the Caribbean and have invested over the years in exceptional retail sales and distribution support and services to our global Principals. Our list of suppliers range from global brands like Omron Fitness and Wisdom Oral Care to exclusive lines from Greece such as ILIADA gourmet products. We also proudly develop and market our own brands and products which we have done successfully in the Adult Care, beverage, food service and personal care categories.
We recognize that ours is a competitive environment which demands that we stay one step ahead of our competitors. We also understand that our people and our suppliers require real time information to analyze their business performance and make data driven, informed decisions. Consequently, in 2012 we invested TT$3.0 million in cutting edge IBM / VAI S2K Enterprise Analytics software and hardware applications that allow us to process information in an efficient, timely and purposeful manner. Our systems are able to process, capture, and manipulate sales, distribution, financial, logistic, retail and warehouse data in real time and present it in user friendly formats to our people, customers and suppliers. Our IT systems allow for a business model based on best industry processes that leverages technology to create value and improve performance.

Our trade savvy, dedicated Consumer sales team allows us presence in all major classes of trade, while our network of Down the Trade wholesalers provide coverage of smaller Moms and Pops operations ‘off the beaten path’.
AA LAQUIS Retail Stores
AA LAQUIS also operates 6 retail Home Health Care (HHC) centres in prime, high traffic locations, including several major shopping malls which are geographically dispersed across Trinidad and Tobago. These retail centers provide the most comprehensive range of HHC products in Trinidad and Tobago and have made us a household name synonymous with quality products and expert advice. We are in fact the most recommended destination for HHC supplies by health care professionals for patients exiting medical institutions and returning home.
There is also an HHC centre servicing the needs of Barbadian consumers at the Lanterns Mall in Barbados.

” I am a regular client of A.A. Laquis in Barbados. I’m the one who buys the items for my mum and having the store so conveniently located and the friendly knowledgeable staff have made my life a lot easier. Even the many questions I might have had have all been responded to appropriately, suggestions made and quite often I end up purchasing the item. On occasion I have had to return or exchange an item and this also was dealt with efficiently. Keep up the good work.”
Michelle Gill Leonel, Home Health Care Store (Barbados) Client
“Above and beyond the product supply, I have found that all of the staff of AA Laquis Barbados have been nothing short of exceptional. They have always been willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. The sales team would even become involved on-site to ensure that not only did we have what we needed, but that my staff and I were properly equipped to give the safest and maximum benefit to our patients. Thank you for being not just salesmen, but partners in patient care.”

Testimonial from UWI MONA
“Partnering with AA Laquis has been very beneficial to our developing UWI Mona School of Dentistry. They have been open to suggestions, quick to respond to questions, and they have provided us with a solid infrastructural and technologically sound foundation on which the school is being built. The relationship has been more than company/client as we consider AA Laquis a part of our school and we thank them for assisting us in our development, and for being there in the very beginning in 2010.”
