Italcotto’s top trend ranges of wall and floor tiles, 2cm porcelain pavers and vinyl flooring will now be available through all Stiles stores nationwide.
Several members of Italcotto’s experienced sales teams, including family members Giovanna Carlone, Tiziana Tarantello and Rochelle Marchesini, will join the Stiles sales team to continue servicing its longstanding clients and assist in the transition of this new and exciting chapter into the Stiles brand.
Stiles stores will be further strengthened through a strategic collaboration with Calore Fireplaces to offer clients the convenience of being able to shop for tiles, taps, sanitary ware, fireplaces, braais, fire pits and much more all under one roof.
“Absorbing Italcotto into the current Stiles brand will create several exciting opportunities for Stiles to become the leading tile retailer in South Africa,” says Steve Joubert, CEO at Stiles. “We look forward to this new venture and can’t wait to see what the future holds,” he adds.
“There is no doubt Stiles will increase its presence in the South African tile industry through the absorption of Italcotto into the Stiles brand and the collaboration of Calore Fireplaces,” says Davide Marchesini, Managing Director at Italcotto and CEO of Calore Fireplaces. “Italcotto’s decades of experience in the SA tile industry will give Stiles the tools they need to succeed,” he adds.
