Minoli – an Oxford Company’s success

Mid-Size family businesses (SME) are generating the lion’s share of growth due to their ability to make decisions, seek out opportunities and offer outstanding customer experiences according to ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants).

In Oxfordshire, Minoli have created a business, which has survived many a recession and will be celebrating their 55th year anniversary this year. Operating in the highly competitive market of supplying high quality floor and wall tiles from Italy to residential, commercial and retail property. The company started by the current managing director’s Jonathon Minoli’s grandfather at the very start of the swinging sixties, when Made in Italy symbolised great designer style.

Jonathon Minoli has taken the legacy of his father and grandfather to create a commercial entity that is a symbol of twenty-first century business. ‘Customer service’ is at the core of the business, from ensuring that the latest design of tiles at competitive prices are available to clients, delivery and care of every customer regardless of the size of the order.

Whilst other companies have been forced to cut back, Minoli have quietly and efficiently created a productive, skilled and loyal workforce. Innovation has always been customer focused. The tiles are despatched from their own 36,000  sq ft. warehouse and showrooms in Oxford using their own distribution; wrapped and packed with the same care of a high-end luxury on-line retailer. It is no wonder that for four consecutive years, the company has won Excellence in Distribution from The Tile Association.

In 2013, Jonathon Minoli took a calculated and well-researched risk and opened a London showroom in the heart of Marylebone. The showroom epitomises Minoli’s design ethos.  All the wall and flooring finishes are displayed in art gallery style.  Bespoke design cabinets open with smooth precision to display the tiles in meticulous fashion. Jonathon Minoli commented ‘many of our clients are based  in London, so  showroom and offices are really an addition to the service we offer giving simple access to products and information within the west End of London. We update our ranges in the Spring and Autumn with launches so as our clients always have the latest designs.’

Jonathon added ‘I have the legacy of my father and grandfather to protect. We have the confidence, thanks to a dedicated team and strong financial controls to grow the business further and take advantage of the growth in all areas of the property industry’.

Cersaie Italy 2014

cersaie

Jonathon Minoli, our managing director has just returned from the Bologna Tile exhibition “Cersaie” and is exceptionally excited about the ranges we will be introducing into our product offering for 2015, scheduled to be previewed in December 2014.

“It is always a pleasure to return to Bologna, like many people within this industry my body clock seems to know when it is time to head for Heathrow and take the two hour flight to the wonderful medieval city that is Bologna. I have been travelling to Bologna for the Exhibition for many years, this Cersaie was either my 24th or 25th, I really can’t recall which, my father had attended the very first Cersaie and the fair that preceded it which I believe was simply called “Saie.

“Each year there tends to be a theme, and over the years that I have been attending I have seen some very strange and quite outrageous future trends, some of which have come to nothing and some really were the new best thing in the industry – tile to look like wood, that will never catch on! This year the trend that we noticed most was the gentle evolution of the existing fashions into bigger and more elaborate versions of the originals. Wood effect is again a feature of the trends, with lengths of these planks getting longer and if anything even more natural than the wood it is based upon. Marble, or marble effect, where polished or matt porcelain is produced to offer every component of the aesthetic beauty of a natural stone, but with the technical characteristic and  abilities of porcelain.

“The Marvel series has been expanded and developed for 2015 to a range of exceptional characteristics with not only new colours but also new sizes, added to mosaics newly designed to complement all of the base tiles, the range now has no equal in tile, porcelain tile or even the original natural stones from which it is based.

New Marvel Noir!

“For the coming year, 2015 , Minoli will be launching  ranges that encompass all of the trends set in Cersaie, with an extension and re launch of the Minoli Evolution Marvel series, additions to Etic, Axis and Travelling Wood effect series and completely new ranges such as LakeStone a remarkable range than replicates stones not often produced in porcelain tile, with large sizes and polished or satin surfaces.

slider_Lakestone_2
New Range – LakeStone!

“The exhibition was generally quite busy, though I often wonder how many of the visitors are actually there for business, I suspect if all of the people within the centre were analysed it would be quite horrifying as to just how many are actual decision makers and buyers, probably not very many at all, I will be surprised if that survey is ever carried out! The attitude of almost every person I met was positive, which given that most of the material we have produced is from Italian sources is a little surprising. Italy is in a terrible mess financially and there upbeat approach is quite admirable given the dire situation of the economy. An excellent article recently written by Roger Bootle of Capital Economics in which he talks about how, in his considered opinion the Euro has been a very bad thing for Italy and that the only option is for with drawl from the currency and that is only a matter of time. A link to the article can be seen Here, Roger Bootle is Managing Director of Capital Economics.

“There is something else about this exhibition, which is quite unique I feel amongst trade shows, the location in Bologna seems to bring out the best in people and you will often see those that spend all year in ferocious competition sharing a drink in the famous cocktail bar of the Majestic – Baglioni Hotel, or at the very least sharing the same space.  I often think that this is a form of neutral territory or even holy ground where the differences and the need to compete are put to one side in a city that welcomes the tile industry like no other.

“This years Cersaie has like many before it given us inspiration and new products to ensure that 2015 will be for our clients just as dynamic and on trend as it should be and full details of these new ranges will be forth coming in the next few weeks, with the main product preview set for early December.

As for Cersaie of the future…. Well we have already booked our rooms for 2015!”

The event attracted almost 150 guests who received the full attention of the Minoli team and saw the remarkable new products displayed in the newly refitted showroom, which although only a year since it launch was subject to a major program of improvements in the run up to the event, to ensure Minoli London is nothing short of cutting edge.

The launch of The Surface Within in September 2013 marked a return to having a London office and showroom for Minoli, where the company was founded in the early 1940’s by Luigi Minoli, grandfather of Jonathon. As a logical extension to its Oxford-based headquarters and Distribution Centre, the George Street showroom showcases the company’s stunning new as well as established collections in the heart of London’s West End. The facility provides a convenient location for designers, developers, retailers and others who specify for projects to browse and gather inspiration from the extensive product displays and samples.

Commenting on the choice of brand name for the showroom, Jonathon Minoli explained that “At Minoli, we see tiles as more than just a floor or wall covering. For us, tiles create the ‘surface within’ buildings, connecting and transforming rooms into beautiful living and working spaces for people to enjoy”.
