Family business EMC Tiles is investing around £1 million in a move which promises to bring quality tiles to Derby and create jobs.
The company, which is celebrating its 40th year of trading this year and already employs more than 50 staff across the East Midlands is the latest company to move into Eagle Park.
Its new trade service centre will open on June 3 and will be its fourth – complementing those in Leicester, Loughborough and Nottingham.
EMC Tiles, Managing Director, Barry Slawson, said: “Derby is a natural next step for the company, whose customers include trade clients such as tile fixers, builders, commercial clients as well as DIY enthusiasts.”
“Our new branch will focus on local business and will incorporate an 8,000 sq ft unit including a custom built Trade Services Centre and showroom with extensive warehouse space for our stocked products.
“We will have a large trade counter with experienced trade staff to advise and help our valued customers.
“Since our small beginnings in 1979, EMC Tiles has always held our relationship with the tile fixer and contractors a key priority to our development as a company.
“The new premises will provide EMC Tiles with a well-positioned property in an established trade location.”
It is another coup for Eagle Park which is the new home of Davis Derby, Greggs, Howden’s and French company Dedienne.
The deal to bring in EMC Tiles was brokered by Salloway Property Consultants and its managing director Steve Salloway said: “We are delighted that another high-quality company has moved into Eagle Park.
“This has become one of the greatest success stories of Derby’s commercial property scene in recent times.”
To launch the new branch, it will host a trade service extravaganza starting on Monday, June 3 until Friday, June 7.
