Eden Clay > About us

We are Eden Clay

Designers, producers and curators of often unique and always wonderful tiles and wood flooring.

A year spent travelling before returning to the UK to carry on our respective careers in wood flooring and tiles, convinced us that we should work together. In 2012, our appetite to satisfy this shared ambition led us to combine our knowledge and experience to form Eden Clay, and open our first store dedicated to our two favourite products.

Eden Clay have come a long way since beginning as two individuals set on serving local businesses and retail customers with products sourced from UK distributors. We now have 12 talented people making up our team, import our products direct from European manufacturers, produce all of our own wood flooring, and sell and install nationally.

It’s said that when starting a business “do what you know”. We built Eden Clay around the products we know inside out and centred it on service over sales. This is still at the heart of what we do, with our staff, showroom and website focused on the experience of finding the perfect tile and wood floor for your business or home.

Founders Mark and Andrew

MARK

Director

During a 20 year career working for one of the UK’s largest timber merchants, Mark spent his final ten years as their UK flooring manager, working closely with interior designers and architects as well as helping to set up their retail division. Having worked on numerous high profile projects, including The Shard and Strata SE1, he understands the demands of meeting deadlines. An affinity for divergent products gave him the ambition to form a business where innovative and unusual wood flooring could be collected or created, and presented alongside traditional wood floors. He took this ambition to Andrew and together founded Eden Clay.

ANDREW

Director

Beginning in the tiling industry over 15 years ago Andrew left his position as the retail manager for an established tiling company to co-found Eden Clay.

His current responsibilities include project managing every aspect of our clients projects, from the initial consultation to quantity surveying, and the sourcing and purchasing of our inspirational tiles.

With his historic links to exclusive factories and artisan manufacturers, the tiles Andrew introduces to Eden Clay continue to enhance our reputation, and his dedication to service ensure our clients return time and time again.

VICTORIA

Accounts

After taking time away to raise her young family, Vicki joined Eden Clay at the end of their first year, bringing experience in office management and accounts, as well as a permanent smile, to the company.

Although often found discussing interior design with our clients, she is actually responsible for our bookkeeping and payroll. Organised and patient, she is very much a fundamental part of Eden Clays success.

CHARLOTTE

Sales

Charlotte’s affable nature represents Eden Clays “service over sales” ideal perfectly. Often our first point of contact, her polite and professional manner coupled with an increasing product knowledge has made Charlotte indispensable.

With a background in sales, plus stints as a hospital radio presenter and overseas volunteer, Charlotte is rarely short of words.

IAN

Site Manager

Decades of experience in tiling, including roles as a contract tiler on large scale commercial projects and as an independent self employed tiler, as well as being a trained and qualified wood floor fitter, have made Ian the ideal site manager for our clients work.

Typically found installing tiles for our clients, still his passion, he is often our go to for setting out and starting projects and for any technical or site related questions.

A dedicated individual with a great eye for detail, he is among the best at what he does.

JOHN

Production & Warehouse Manager

Johns previous role as a warehouse manager for one of the UK’s largest underfloor heating suppliers, has given him the wealth of experience and knowledge required for running our busy production line and warehouse.

A fully qualified first aider, forklift driver, health and safety officer and fire marshall are just some of the assets he adds to Eden Clay.

While his music choices are questionable, and often too loud, his passion for fishing and photography are the quiet in his life.

MIKE

Lead Fitter

An experienced tiler and trained wood floor fitter, Mike is perfect to lead our fitting. Having spent 13 years as a self employed tiler he joined us in 2018 and has since become an integral part of Eden Clays recent success.

He has a national diploma in fine art, is a qualified welder and a highly skilled tradesman, who even during his free time spends it making and building, his latest creation being a fully handmade trike built from scratch.

Specialising in intricate pattern work, nothing is too challenging or too much trouble for Mike.

RICHARD

Wood floor fitter

Richard has been working with wood in one way or another since leaving school. His time has mainly been dedicated to installing wood flooring but experience with kitchen fitting and carpentry has given him a great all round knowledge of wood working.

He has worked on both large and small scale projects, including for some of our more high profile clients, and understands the different approach each requires.

MARK R
