Our History

Originally East Midlands Ceramics Ltd, the company began trading in 1979 and was located on Mansfield Road in Sherwood, Nottingham.

The company moved premises to Hucknall Road, Nottingham in 1989. This became a 20,000 square foot complex with award-winning showrooms, trade service facilities and warehouse.

In 2000, EMC Tiles continued to grow as we expanded into Loughborough, and then onto Leicester in 2014. Both branches comprise of ground and first floor showrooms, complete with trade service facilities.

May of 2019, saw the opening of our purpose built showroom, trade service centre and warehouse in Derby. Following this, in 2021 both our showroom and trade service centre in Leicester will be relocating to nearby premises on Chartwell Drive, LE18 2FL.
