The acquisition brings the network of tile stores in the Beaumont Tiles family to more than 90 and continues our growth as Australia's largest independent tile retailer.
Majer Tiles will re-brand under the Beaumont Tiles banner. We will open a new Queensland warehouse to meet our new customer needs and spend $2 million integrating computer systems.
Of course, our customers are the big winners in all this.
You'll have access to a wider range of products and more competitive pricing that the buying power of being part of a larger group brings.
The acquisition gives Beaumont Tiles 25 outlets in Queensland. It comes 44 years after Majer Tiles was founded with a single showroom in Cairns.
Majer Tiles is an already healthy business that will be reinvigorated and be taken to the next level.
Just about all the Majer Tiles staff will be staying on. The head of the family owned business, Tony Majer, will become our Queensland manager.
