The group service retail, trade, home builders, and commercial specifiers.
Beaumont Tiles are recognised as ‘Australia’s favourite place for tiles and bathroomware.'
Established in 1960 by founder, RJ Beaumont, the family owned business has grown, improved and worked hard to become Australia’s largest tile group. Today, RJ’s four sons Peter, John, Lyn, and Bob are directors of the business. Bob Beaumont is Executive Chairman and CEO. Turnover in 2011 approached AU$150 million.
With outlets all across eastern and central Australia, including Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Brisbane; Beaumont Tiles now supply more tiles to Australian homes and builders than any other tile retailer.
The group describe themselves as anything but an ‘average,’ ‘corporate,’ or ‘franchised’ business and are proudly unique in what they do and how they do it.
Being ‘different’ doesn’t mean that they do weird things. It simply means that they have held firmly to certain principles.
As a family owned and managed business, Beaumont Tiles believe in the value of honesty and integrity. The company values their staff and believes in a fair go for all.
This philosophy is repeated by the staff, franchisees, customers and suppliers.
Long term relationships are valued with Beaumont Tiles. Many staff have over 25 years of service. Clients that stretch back for 30 years and more are not unusual.
Even some franchised stores have long term partnerships of 25 or 30 years.
Today, Beaumont Tiles have over 90 outlets in SA, Queensland, Victoria, ACT and New South Wales. These stores are serviced by key distribution warehousing in Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
Around half the outlets are company owned and managed (corporate) and the other half are franchised.
This unique situation ensures that any warehousing, ranging, marketing or advertising is to the benefit of all outlets, regardless of ownership. The group buying power ensures competitive pricing across all outlets.
Fashion, style, design and quality underlie everything that the group stands to achieve. One goal is clearly to deliver the best range of ceramic tiles to the Australian market. Another is to lead the market with new and innovative colours, textures, sizes and designs. But also, Beaumont Tiles is a business that is driven to grow, profit and prosper.
