Tile Mountain is a company based in the city of Stoke-on-Trent in the United Kingdom that retails tiles commonly used in home decor.[2][6][7] The company became notable after one of its founders, Mo Iqbal, "sold his Longton-based Tile Giant business to builders merchant Travis Perkins for £12 million in 2007" and "launched online retailer Tile Mountain with fellow directors", an act that created "dozens of jobs" in Stoke-on-Trent.[2][8] These individuals include Jeremy Harris, who helped Iqbal in founding Tile Mountain, as well as Nick Ounstead serves as a non-executive director.[4][9][10] Tile Mountain's model includes selling "to the public online, sending samples out to customers before they commit to a large order."[11] Its products are those from various parts of the globe, in addition to those made locally.[11] The Tile and Stone Journal reported that "Tile Mountain currently has over 800 lines in stock, representing 500,000 sq. metres of stock worth in the region of £1 million", including "tools, trims, Mapei adhesives and underfloor heating, as well as ceramic and natural stone tiles."[12] Tile Mountain's main distribution centre is in Stoke-on-Trent and it "enables consumers to order free tile samples within 24 hours."[13]
