The Tile Depot
The Tile Depot is a family business established way back in 1995 with one small store and a range of just 23 tiles. They now have 13 stores from Whangarei to Queenstown and a range of over 1000 products. Throughout this growth, the company has maintained its small family business mentality and caring for its clients, staff and the environment remain core values they constantly check themselves against.
In 2019 The Tile Depot formed a ‘Green Team’ captained by ‘Green Queen’ Toni Duncan. They identified 21 areas within the company they can make improvements to do better by their people and the environment and have spent the last few years finding improvements around carbon footprint, waste management, staff development, supplier matrix and charity work.
Much of the team and family are passionate about the ocean so the opportunity to fund a Whale Tale and do a small bit for our vulnerable marine species was a no brainer and quickly signed off by the Green Team. The company are eagerly awaiting the unveiling of the Tales and can’t wait to see what Aaron Kereopa comes up with.
