Welcome to Tile Power Limited Kirrawee – Sutherland Shire Tiles
Back in the late 1960’s Penprase was the big name in hardware in the Sutherland Shire servicing most of Sydney metro, Wollongong and surrounds. John Fletcher, the then Sales Manager was based at Miranda in southern Sydney, overseeing the Penprase reps and managing the day to day operations. Also at that time a youngster by the name of Ashley Tucker was employed at Penprase on a part time basis and as time passed was promoted as an assistant to John full time.
Over time as Penprase restructured and re focused on different areas, John recognised an opportunity with tiles and with his knowledge and ability decided to branch out on his own. It was at this point in 1970 that Sutherland Shire Tiles was born.
If you’re from the Sutherland Shire, you’ll know the reputation of the business and their staff. They pride themselves on the best of service, advice and products. Their customers hear about the shop by word of mouth and that’s how they like it. The shop has been busy recently updating their showroom and have innovated simple but great ideas on how to make the customer experience even better.
Today Sutherland Shire Tiles still operates on the principle of premium customer service. They offer their clientele the best of locally sourced and imported materials, as well as exclusive products. They mainly supply, but are not limited to the Sutherland Shire and surrounding regions. Looking to the future, Ashley wishes to keep his level of customer service a priority – quote ‘face to face recognition and service is key. This is what we are known for and we must always endeavour to improve the customer’s experience.'

Tile Power Limited is the authority when it comes to ceramic or porcelain wall and floor tiles in Australia. We have been part of the tile industry's landscape both locally and internationally for the better part of three decades as a formalised group (since 1987), however many of the individual directors within Tile Power Limited itself have been operating in the tile industry for much longer than that and have helped shape and nurture the direction of industry practices to how they are now in modern Australia. With a modest industry group that holds such a long and colourful history, deep tile industry influence and experience, our humble beginnings seem like a distant but very much cherished memory.
For the last 28 years the goal of Tile Power Limited has been to create an environment where the individual tile merchant has the ability to harness large scale volume buying with the support and structure of being part of a larger and family oriented network. These pricing benefits and deep pool of industry knowledge ultimately benefit the consumer as more and more premium exclusive ranges, custom branded products and accessories become available at industry competitive pricing.
