Restoration Projects & Specialist Manufacture
As well as our standard range of tiles we provide a fully bespoke manufacturing service for both wall and floor tiles.
As a small-scale manufacturer employing staff who are used to working with historic material, we have developed a breadth of knowledge ideally suited to the flexible and careful approach required for management of specialised reproduction projects.
Services include colour matching, reproduction of faience work, patterned wall and floor tiles, mouldings and a full design service should you be looking for something unique.
Our production team have been involved in restoration projects ranging from the Chase Manhattan Bank and the Chemical Bank in the City, Tavern on the Green in New York and the ubiquitous public toilets on the Isle of Bute, to the extravagances of the famous Food Halls of Harrods, Knightsbridge. This has included full-scale copies of the Harrods Food Halls being built in many airport terminals; Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, as well as in Frankfurt, Vienna, Hamburg, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. Recent projects have included remanufacture of original Craven Dunnill & Co. wall tiling and ceramic door surround at the Brighton Dome and restoration and re-manufacture of geometric floor tiling for Osgoode Hall, Canada.
Many of our Projects have been made in conjunction with Heritage Tile Conservation Ltd. Visit their website for more examples of our recent restoration projects.
Our flexible approach to bespoke manufacture ideally suits us to the specialised production of tiles for the London Underground stations.
