[FEATURED] The history of the Douglas Jones family business
When family is involved, what you create is more sentimental and the push to add a final special touch is always there. This is evident when it comes to the quality of products and service Douglas Jones delivers.
Established in 2000 by the late Robin Douglas-Jones who saw the need in the market for more mosaic, decor and tile accent products, Douglas Jones offers a vast selection of unique offerings. These come in a range of sizes and textures, including glass, metal, porcelain, ceramic and natural stone.
In the past 18 years, the company has grown to see Robin’s son, Anthony, become the CEO, his wife, Beverley, the chief financial officer, his daughter, Kitty, the operations director and Rens Rezelman as the managing director.
With a South African production department, Douglas Jones’ aim and passion is to find unique, fashionable, inspiring mosaic and decorative tiles from all over the world. It also offers a personalised option where patterns, fades and mixes are created to suit every client’s needs.
‘We might be a small company in numbers, but we believe that we are influential in the design arena of the building industry,’ says Anthony Douglas-Jones. ‘Mosaics can bring beauty to once lifeless spaces, and their colour, material and ultimate design create talking points.’
To stay ahead in the building industry, Douglas Jones has partneredwith Saint-Gobain Weber, an international manufacturer and supplier of quality adhesives, to develop the Douglas Jones Mosaic Fix, which provides a perfect mosaic installation. Mosaics are different to normal tiles in that they generate more movement and therefore need a quick-setting, high-tensile strength adhesive with the ability to absorb the additional movement of the sheets.
When looking for tiles or mosaics Douglas Jones offers the products and services you need to turn your space into one you can’t wait to show off.
