How I built my house in a hole… what a way to introduce the stunning Langtry House in Hampstead.

The article in Metro Property about the music impresario and business partner of established London property developers and designers Peter and Gillie Regis, Tony Gibber goes in to great detail about the build and specification of the development and the tiling by Minoli gets a particular mention.

Gibber, responsible for a string of Top 10 hits working with artists such as Billy Ocean and Bucks Fizz turned his hand to building and development after retiring from the music industry and seems to have the same magic touch of the superstar with both careers!

As always, we are delighted to be associated with such remarkable properties and remarkable clients!

Minoli “Featured” on Channel 4

Minoli “Featured” on Channel 4

With the demise of the enormously successful BBC TV Program Top Gear, the car related programs on other channels have seen a tremendous upturn in viewing figures and general interest in their output.

The new Channel Four program, “For The Love Of Cars”  with its  prime Sunday evening slot of 8.00 PM is attracting viewers who would normally have been watching Clarkson & Co on the BBC.

In one recent edition, Series 2 episode 3 “HOT HATCHES” the presenters, Philip Glenister and Ant Anstead revisit the classic Hot Hatches of the 1980’s and whilst testing the Renault 5 GT Turbo on the M25 in the pouring rain, there can very clearly be seen a Minoli Truck (all be it one of the older smaller vehicles) sat alongside them as filming took place.

The program is also sponsored by Alfa Romeo, a long Standing client of Minoli.

April 2015, The Business Magazine, the leading Business Magazine within the Thames Valley.

With another leading publication choosing to cover the Minoli Suppliers Lunch with a feature article, we are coming to realise what a truly unique occasion the Lunch was and how in these times when “suppliers” are being pushed and prodded by customers for more and more, for less and less, the attitude of companies like Minoli to work with and nurture suppliers, as well as concentrating on customer requirements is becoming a matter for great discussion in the business press.

Minoli Suppliers Luncheon March 2015 – Working together for Success

“Pay your suppliers, in full, on time, without fail, no short counts” –  J. Minoli

mattphoto-09-gs_007

The debate on how suppliers are treated by companies, large and small, started in the supermarket sector and has now spread throughout all industries. A recent poll, carried out by the Forum of Private Business earlier this year, reveals that the majority of SME’s believe that the UK’s larger private family-owned firms are the most trustworthy enterprises to do business with.

One of these family-owned businesses, which can trace their heritage back to the Swinging Sixties, is Minoli. The company has had it’s head office and logistics facility based in Oxford for over 55 years and is a classic family-owned business, established by the current Managing Director, Jonathon Minoli’ s grandfather.  The company, from their Oxford base and London showroom have built up a significant business, supplying the best of Italian specialist tiles both into the UK and for further export. Their clients include; major house builders & developers, the automotive industry, commercial developers, retailers & resellers (wholesale) and individual private clients.

The business has grown year-on-year, even during the tough times of the recession. This has been in no small part due to interaction with their suppliers, who along with the team, approaching 50 people, have helped the business not only survive, but to thrive.

Many of these suppliers are small and form the bedrock of business that is at the heart of the Government’s long-term economic plan. The Royal Assent for the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act, which came into force of 26th March 2015, will help small firms to innovate, grow and create jobs.

According to Jonathon Minoli, “Behind Minoli’s success is a chain of very loyal and dedicated suppliers, who have contributed enormously to our success. Some of these relationships were forged by my father and his father before him and have stood the test of time, which is testament to their mutual value”.

This year, Jonathon Minoli showed his appreciation for the support and dedication of their suppliers and business partners, at the first Minoli Suppliers Annual Luncheon at Home House, private members’ club in Portman Square, London.  Around 80 suppliers, large and small, the factories, the fleet providers and even the florist, enjoyed a lunch at Minoli’s expense. A fitting tribute to their dedication to helping Minoli grow.

Jonathon Minoli added “We support and encourage all our business suppliers, we pay them in full and on time, listen and encourage them to grow their businesses. The recent government initiatives can only help us and our suppliers.  In turn, we can continue to offer an enhanced service to our own clients and it is important to note the number that have in place, their own Supply Chain Charter of Corporate Social Responsibility”.

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

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’.
