The Tile Association (TTA) was formed in January 2000, through the amalgamation of the NMTFA (National Master Tile Fixers’ Association), the NTA (National Tile Association), the TPB (Tile Promotion Board) and British Ceramic Tile Council, with over 75 years of combined industry experience.
Since formation, TTA has more than doubled in size as the single, independent association for the entire UK tiling industry. TTA now has more than 1,000 member business units, consisting of tiling contractors, fixers, distributors, retailers and manufacturers. The aim is to achieve a competent, qualified workforce in the industry.
TTA operates as a Trade Association with the TTA Board having overall responsibility for the work of the Association, as well as being responsible for future policy and financial matters. Many members of the Board and Committees have contributed to the formation of British Standards, which all TTA members follow.
The Tile Association is a member of Build UK – who lead the construction industry by bringing together clients, main contractors and trade associations; and CPA (Construction Products Association) – who represent the UK’s manufacturers and distributors of construction products and materials.
TTA headquarters is based in Stone, Staffordshire.
