Minoli relocated from London to Oxford after the war. Having initially established themselves near the city centre, Luigi and his son Peter took advantage of Government incentives to move to the current location in Cowley in the 1960’s, where the company was first incorporated. On today’s site at that time stood a factory producing terrazzo tiles and the operational base for the company’s installation division which thrived, working on colleges, car showrooms, hospitals and domestic projects.
Recognising the emergence of Italian ceramic and porcelain tile manufacturing, Peter worked to develop a business wholesaling to local merchants, which soon took over completely from terrazzo production. Forging long-standing relationships with some of the world’s pre-eminent manufacturers, Minoli can lay claim to being one of the original, genuine tile distributors in the UK marketplace.
Now run by Peter’s son Jonathon, Minoli has continued to expand, but very much organically with the completion of the new high bay warehouse and showroom facility in the autumn of 1996 and then a further, much larger development in 2002 and 2003, creating far more storage, marketing and administration space.
In its current state, Minoli’s impressive, purpose-built headquarters and distribution centre comprises some 7,000 ft2 of showroom space and 32,000 ft2 of warehousing.
