Couple launch mobile tile firm for home makeovers
1:58pm Friday 3rd December 2010
A HUSBAND-and-wife team have launched a new mobile business for kitchens and bathrooms.
The days of buying wall and floor tiles that look great in the showroom but are mismatched at home could be over if they have their way.
Self-employed tiler Ian Dobson and his wife, Nicola, of Newton Aycliffe, have launched the Mobile Tile Company which allows customers to see how products look in their home, rather than relying on guesswork at the store.
The couple can also offer advice on tiling ideas for traditional or feature walls.
Mr Dobson said: “Because we can work outside office hours, we also have a niche in the marketplace to service people who either can’t get out to find tiles or do not wish to spend personal or family time looking for tiles.
“In the coming years, we see ourselves as having two successful businesses that complement each other but also work independently and we hope to be in a position to create new jobs eventually.”
