Tile Mountain opens head officePosted 15th Mar 2017 by KBBDaily
Tile Mountain has opened its new purpose-built head office and distribution centre in Tunstall, with the investment coming on the back of year-on-year growth of 60%, according to the company, and the new location set to create a further 70 new jobs over the next three years.
According to Tile Mountain, it is hoping to be able to offer employment to some of the workers of H&R Johnson who are set to be made redundant following a restructuring programme. “Johnson's Tiles is a company we've enjoyed a great relationship with since starting Tile Mountain and the firm and its products have been a key driver of the success of our business over the past four years,” said Tile Mountain managing director Jeremy Harris.
“We are sorry to hear of the proposed job losses, but believe that Tile Mountain may be able to offer employment to some of those affected. As part of Tile Mountain’s investment in the government-backed Ceramic Valley Enterprise Zone, we have committed to creating 70 jobs over the next three years at our new purpose-built 120,000 sq ft warehouse, showroom and office complex, situated on the 10-acre site that Johnson’s Highgate Works formerly occupied.”
He added: “Tile Mountain is scheduled to relocate to the new facility in mid-April and we will be embarking upon a recruitment drive from that point. We’d welcome applications from Johnson’s employees affected by redundancy and hope that we would be able to re-employ some of the workers in similar roles as they are created.”
