Travis Perkins Group bought tile business Tile HQ Limited on 31 July 2009.
Tile HQ, an internet-based retailer of ceramic and stone tiles and relevant accessories, was set up in December 2007 by Colin Hampson and has experienced rapid growth since it was started. It will continue to be run by Hampson, who joins Tile Giant, part of the Travis Perkins Group, as E-commerce Manager to help develop and expand the internet based offering from Tile Giant.
Nick Rose, Operations Director for Tile Giant commented; “We are excited to be expanding our tile business with the addition of Tile HQ and look forward to developing our on-line offering with Colin on board, welcoming him to the business.”
Tile HQ has built its successful online tile business by couriering customer orders to anywhere in the country as well as offering a sample tile service to ‘try before you buy’.
