30 Years in the business and still growing
Myaree Ceramics still growing after 30 years.
We’re popping champagne all month, because May marks 30 years for Myaree Ceramics! We’ve changed a lot since the 80s (and we’re not just talking hair-wise), and we’re proud to celebrate this milestone. It’s been no small feat: Myaree Ceramics began, and remains, a family business – established by Vince Ciccarelli and his son Carmine, who still manages the business today – and we thought we’d share our story with you:
It begins with Vince. An Italian migrant builder, Vince saw potential for beautiful products from his homeland to be used in projects in WA – and so Myaree Ceramics was born. Initially supplying to the residential market in Myaree, Vince and his son Carmine were the first business in WA to import tiles from Italy. Needless to say – this was long before Pinterest, décor magazines, home renovation shows and the never-ending plethora of information available to customers today, so it was up to them not only to trend forecast (spoiler alert: a lot of brown and marble look tiles) but to help the customer understand the product. From the beginning, quality was key: every tile was imported not only for its aesthetic appeal, but its ability to wear well and outlast most of the product on the market at the time.
As the technology for manufacturing tiles advanced and China opened its import and export doors in the 90s, our world of tile options and supplies exploded with potential. It was also around the same time that the internet became commonly used and décor started taking on many new looks. The business expanded, so we moved with the times (and to a new location) overhauling our showroom, and employing interior designer staff to bring client visions to life in a variety of new tile materials.
We’ve since renovated twice, added an architectural department for our growing commercial work, wholesale product across the state – all while growing our product selection, leading to the many patterns and styles that we still consistently update to stay ahead of client requirements.
With a great love for what we do, our company has grown to 30 staff, and we remain one step ahead of the interior design market. A keen eye for décor composition and patterns, a lot of industry experience and a gallery of stock to bring happy tears to any interior designer’s eyes, the Myaree Ceramics ethos remains the same – to offer nothing less than the finest natural stone, ceramic and porcelain tiles to the residential and commercial sectors.
