Tile Mountain offers hope to HR Johnson workers

Tile Mountain Warehouse

The launch of Tile Mountain’s new purpose built head office and distribution centre in Tunstall may come at a pertinent time for some of H&R Johnson’s workers who are set to be made redundant following a restructuring programme.

With a year on year growth of sixty percent, and the processing of over three thousand transactions per week, Tile Mountain is now investing in its future, and part of this is a commitment to create a further seventy new jobs over the next three years. The new job opportunities will cover many skill sets from warehousing to graphic design.

Commenting about the new jobs Jeremy Harris, Managing Director said:

“Johnson’s Tiles is a company we’ve enjoyed a great relationship with since starting Tile Mountain and the firm and its products have been a key driver of the success of our business over the past 4 years. We are sorry to hear of the proposed job losses, but believe that Tile Mountain may be able to offer employment to some of those affected.”

“As part of Tile Mountain’s investment in the government-backed Ceramic Valley Enterprise Zone, we have committed to creating 70 jobs over the next three years at our newpurpose-built 120,000 sq ft warehouse, showroom and office complex, situated on the 10 acre site that Johnson’s Highgate Works formerly occupied.”

“Tile Mountain is scheduled to relocate to the new facility in mid-April and we will be embarking upon a recruitment drive from that point. We’d welcome applications from Johnson’s employees affected by redundancy and hope that we would be able to re-employ some of the workers in similar roles as they are created. Anyone interested in applying for a position at Tile Mountain should email careers@tilemountain.co.uk or check the careers page on our website, which will be regularly updated https://www.tilemountain.co.uk/careers/
