For over 20 years, Ecotile has provided world-class, sustainable flooring from its plant in Luton. The PVC interlocking floor tiles are resistant to oils and chemicals and can withstand forklift traffic. From a business that began life in a North London shed, Ecotile has grown into a thriving factory of almost 30 employees.
Having joined Made in Britain a year ago, Lucinda O’Reilly (Ecotile, Marketing Director), explained, “we wanted to get involved because we know there are thousands of fantastic UK manufacturers producing high quality goods. This is a story that never gets told by UK media and we wanted to help change that.”
The team use the Made in Britain marque on their brochure and website which Lucinda told us, “provides export customers with an extra reassurance they’re dealing with a reputable company who supply high quality goods on time and at a reasonable price.”
