Tiles UK, one of the most successful and respected tile distributors in the country, is set to target the specification market, via a new corporate division, as it goes for future growth.
The company, established in 1947, believes the specification sector is the one which currently offers the greatest opportunity for its development. Tiles UK is headed by Ian Kershaw and Alison Bold, both of whom are highly experienced in the tiling sector and both of whom have been chair of The Tile Association in the past.
With a strong team, which also includes David Sowden, the company serves a catchment area which stretches from Birmingham and the East Midlands to North Wales to Cumbria. It operates distribution centres in Leeds, Manchester, Warrington and Nottingham, with a total of 120,000sq ft of warehousing capacity, and its strong infrastructure includes its own transport fleet, giving it the logistical capability to offer next day delivery on all stock items and 7-10 days for non-stock products.
