C&S Tile was founded in 1963 by Claudio Corra, a young entrepreneur who immigrated to Vancouver from the Venato region of Italy. At the time Vancouver was still developing as a city and he saw the opportunity to introduce fine Italian ceramic tile to the growing North American market and thus, C&S Tile was born. C&S Tile grew alongside the growth and development of Western Canada, as the company provided ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tile products for many major projects in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
As C&S Tile’s reputation of delivering fine products grew in Canada, it’s reputation as a reliable and trusted global partner grew amongst our suppliers over seas. Overtime we strengthened our global network and increased our supplier portfolio with other reputable tile producers from around the world including, South America, Asia, Spain and other parts of Europe.
As today’s global market becomes smaller, more and more competitors have the ability to access similar global resources. Our long lasting relationship with our suppliers keeps us apart as we continue to introduce innovative and inspiring tile products to the North American market.
Our sales team focuses on delivering our products with unparalleled customer service, technical knowledge and competitive pricing to ensure a positive and seamless experience, regardless of the size of the job. Our 6,000 square foot showroom in Burnaby serves not only as a place to view our extensive selection but as a design hub for contractors, architects, interior designers and home owners to come and discuss ideas, plans and projects with one another.
While Claudio Corra remains active in the business, his daughter Sara Corra moves the company forward as Chief Executive Officer. As a proud family business, Sara is determined to continue and strengthen the family legacy as a progressive leader who embraces innovation, expanded product offering and unparalleled service ideology as a vision for the future.
