Growing Our Business by Traveling Around the World

Here at Island Tile, we always strive to be the absolute best in the business, and that means going above and beyond in everything we do. From our customer service to our products and installation process, we pride ourselves on excellence. We offer our customers a wide variety of different floor and wall surfaces, and we only select top-quality tiles to distribute to the people of Brevard County. If you are looking for a beautiful backsplash to enhance your kitchen or bathroom, we have gorgeous mosaic and glass-look tiles to achieve what this. Love the look of wood, but want something less expensive and more durable? Our wood-look tile is the perfect solution. Installing a pool and want a unique stone-look patio that is water resistant? We have you covered!

Just like any other industry, the world of tile is constantly evolving. New materials are being introduced all over the world, and we want to be able to offer the latest, most beautiful products. Everyone has a passion – ours is tile! That’s why our founder and owner, Cliff Hirsch, travels to Europe annually to attend some of the biggest tile shows in the world. Here, he connects with other tile distributors and scouts out the newest, most unique tile and marble from countries like Italy, Spain, Hungary and beyond. He makes the annual trip for several reasons. One is to set Island Tile apart from the competition by offering the latest trends from around the world to the people of Central Florida. Another reason is to build relationships with renowned tile manufacturers and distributors because having great relationships with others in the industry makes it easy to do business with each other! Sure, we could “introduce ourselves” to these business owners via email or phone, but a handshake and a face-to-face conversation just go so much further. We don’t take shortcuts, we do things the way we feel is right. If that means traveling across the world every year, we’re happy to do so!

Another reason our owner, Cliff Hirsch, attends these tile shows in Italy and Spain every year? He genuinely enjoys going! He has devoted over 30 years of his life to growing his business from a small bathroom remodeling company into Central Florida’s leading tile distributor and installer, and that doesn’t happen if your heart isn’t in it! He is dedicated to helping people in the Melbourne, FL and Palm Bay areas beautify their homes. He also makes it his business to know everything there is to know about the different flooring and wall surfaces. So, it’s truly a pleasure to talk with other people in the industry to learn from them and share the knowledge he has picked up from 34 years in the tile industry. We won’t lie, Europe is beautiful too, so that doesn’t hurt!

The point is, we strongly believe that putting your all into your business is a necessity if you want to succeed, so that’s what we do! We invite you to stop by our showroom in Melbourne, FL to see the latest tile we have imported from around the world. We also have a warehouse where we offer high-quality discount tiles, so no matter what your budget is, our design experts can help you find the perfect way to achieve your vision.
