A big HELLO from all the team at Rees Tiles!
We are proud to be a local, family run business which focuses on delivering a high quality of service to every single one of our customers. We have been trading as a company since 2000 and over the years we have seen the team grow, the business expand to cover the North West and even opened a second showroom. Our original showroom is based in Heversham, Milnthorpe and it is here that the Rees Tiles journey began.
Rees Tiles is the brainchild of the Armer family and is still, to this day, lead proudly by them. Even back then there was a strong emphasis on making sure that we had something for everyone, importing high quality ceramic and porcelain tiles direct from the continent, keeping up to trend with what was breaking the market and be able to offer it to customers at an affordable price. We still have this mind set and since then have expanded into other areas of flooring alongside tiles such as LVT, Karndean Designflooring and Polyflor, as well as being able to supply natural stone, engineered wood and laminate.
Our second showroom opened in Lancaster in 2012 and has been a great success from the start. Lancaster was lacking any kind of alternative to the high street retailers for tiles and flooring so we thought this was a good opportunity for us to bring Rees Tiles to the area. The response was very positive and we established relationships with many a local tradesperson and happy customers.
Both our showrooms have an extensive selection of all the tiles, flooring and products we offer and no matter which showroom you go to, you’ll be welcomed with a smile and assisted every step of the way. So be sure to make use of our sample service where you can borrow your favourite tiles free of charge to see how they look at home and don’t forget that we offer a free local delivery service too. Rees Tiles have also established ourselves as a trusted distributor of tiles and flooring products all over the North West, covering a variety of areas in Lancashire, Cumbria and Yorkshire.
Meet the Team
Director & Lancaster Showroom Manager
A member of the RTF team right from the beginning. Steven is an integral cog of Rees Tiles who knows the company in and out and joined his parents as a Director in 2010. He’s the brains behind what tiles we import, what products we stock and how we keep ahead of the game. When he’s not working he’s either Super Dad, cheering on the kids at the football pitch or on the golf course.
Heversham Showroom Manager
A face and name that everyone knows and one of the longest standing members of the team (since 2002). You could say that Julie is part of the wood work at the Heversham showroom! She’s responsible for the day to day running of many parts of the business and with a head full of knowledge she will always be able to answer any query. Out of work she enjoys spending quality time with her family.
