Jamie and Sandra McAuliffe, the owners of Aspire Ceramics, have never been busier since they decided to scale up their tile showroom, located at 4 Romet Rd, Wodonga.
The couple made the move from their old showroom on McKoy St during the thick of the pandemic in November 2020.
The pandemic has put extensive pressure on parts of the building sector including tile supply shortages, however, the Aspire team have continued to evolve and adapt to the challenges within the industry to ensure they continue to provide good supply and service to their customers.
The couple, who have 35 years of combined tiling experience between them, started Aspire Ceramics almost five years ago, seeing a great opportunity to offer more exclusive products to the area and educate people about installation during the process.
"Together we have completed several renovations and new home builds of our own, so we have lived the experience of planning a new home or extension, understanding just what our clients are going through," Mrs McAuliffe said.
“Fortunately for us, business has been going very well. Our exposure is growing rapidly within the region, and we have many projects on the go which we are extremely proud to be a part of.
“It's exciting to now have a bigger showroom and the ability to showcase a more extensive range of tiles, sourcing from around the world on trend lines such as Natural Terrazzo, Fluted Marble, Moroccan Zellige tiles and much more.
“We work closely with builders, colour consultants, architects and tradespeople on a daily basis and we are well educated in reading building plans and have a very good understanding of the build process."
The couple currently employs two colour consultants within the showroom and has five installers working onsite.
They invite you to come and see their beautiful hand-selected range of tiles that are guaranteed to please.
The business is open 9am to 4.30pm on weekdays and 9am to 1pm on Saturdays.
