Ceramique Internationale

May 2019

Ceramique Internationale, one of the North’s leading tile specialists, is this year celebrating 45 years in business, having started life as a tile fixing company in 1974.

Owned and run together for the past 25 years by childhood friends Peter Vann and Cameron Fraser, Ceramique Internationale is a multi-million-pound business, with the two directors applying a hands-on approach to managing a profitable and robust company.

The needs of independent retailers, architects, Interior designers, and house developers are met across a range of the company’s three cornerstones
Reliability – “which doesn’t just mean deliveries turning up on time”, according to Peter Vann.

Providing a knowledgeable and personal service, the staff have more than 300 years of experience and that stability is invaluable.
Ceramique Internationale doesn’t believe in answering machines.

Enjoying very strong and uniquely long relationships with the very best factories in Italy - the largest supplying nation to Ceramique Internationale - customers get the first, and best versions of all the new technology and creativity, with weekly collections ensuring 100% confidence about repeat availability.

Retailers benefit from Ceramique’s lifetime association with the commercial market, where the design trends being specified by designers and architects are followed and can be introduced with supreme confidence ahead of the emerging consumer market. This ability to anticipate and capitalise rapidly on new ideas means the company’s stock range is always on-trend.
An encyclopaedic awareness of product satisfies any request for any style, size, type of tile from all sectors.

Value for money
Ceramique Internationale focusses its pricing policies on providing a combined package of products and services that retailers can remarket at realistic levels, with protected profit margins.
Its distribution field sales teams areas covers the North East, North West and East and West Midlands, and we can -and do - deliver to any UK postal code, home or site, free of charge.
Ceramique Internationale is a strong believer in ensuring its customers appreciate the cost, technical, and aesthetic benefits for any product, be it of a low or high value.
