Tubs & Tiles, which had been trading since 1966 as a distributor, and in more recent years developed a showroom in Coventry, closed before Christmas 2016, following a ‘difficult trading period’.

The appointment of an insolvency practitioner led to an auction of the assets, which was won by Nicholls & Clarke Group. The Coventry site will be the 18th Nicholls & Clarke Tiles and Bathrooms showroom in the UK and will continue to offer the existing range of products.

The showroom will also provide trade customers with access to the Nicholls & Clarke range of 60,000 products. Nicobond adhesives and tiling solutions, bathroom and wetroom products will be added to the stock in the coming weeks.
