Mark Osborne, Managing Director, set up Tiletec in 1991.
Mark’s father, Ron Osborne, had been a tiler since 1947. Mark started his tiling apprenticeship with his father at the age of 16 in 1982 and, when Ron retired, Mark continued his father’s work and set up Tiletec.
The Osborne family has over 65 years of tiling history to their name, so it was only natural that Mark Osborne followed in his father’s footsteps.
Mark’s aim is to provide the client with a first class delivery on construction projects in the wall and floor tiling industry; in more recent years he has added soft flooring to the list of specialised services.
Ron Osborne was a great believer in apprenticeships; Mark shares this view and has continued to apply the apprenticeship model to Tiletec with the same ethos and high standards as his father. To this day, Tiletec still employ four of Ron’s former apprentices.
Today Tiletec employ a highly trained and qualified workforce consisting of Contract Managers, Site Supervisors, Tilers, Soft Floor Layers and general office staff together with the group of young apprentices who are a crucial addition to Tiletec’s future workforce.
