Our History

With a number of showrooms and an extensive distribution network, in just 40 years International Tiles has grown from a single retail outlet into the Southwest's largest independent importer and distributor of ceramic tiles.

Founded as 'The Paignton Tile Company', the company outgrew its original premises in Winner Street. The decision was made to move to bigger premises and the company moved into a vacant unit on the Trojan industrial Park, near Paignton Zoo. This enabled the company to display more ranges and hold more tiles in stock.

Further growth was made over the next few years. the original warehousing and showrooms were expanded substantially, allowing a system of tile displaying to be developed that has subsequently been adopted by many other retailers. With the capability to stock one of the largest collections of tiles in the Southwest, imported directly from leading factories in Spain, Italy and elsewhere. Having more than 1,000,000 tiles always in stock became a realistic claim. 'Bathroom World' was also added allowing the customer to create their complete bathroom all under one roof.

Whilst the company supplied a large number of the retailers in the Southwest, including the Isles of Scilly, Channel Islands and South Wales, there were areas without a retailer displaying the 'International Tiles' brand. To fill these gaps the company decided to open its own branches in these areas. As a result, there is now a branch of International Tiles in Bridgwater with plans to add further outlets where the company is not represented.
