We understand that Australian consumers buying habits are changing. Australians only want the best and latest quality products together with the lowest prices. This is because they do not want to pay highly inflated retail prices being offered at fancy showrooms. This customer revolution is growing momentum, so we have listened and acted. Our TFO model satisfies the needs of our Australian consumers to have the best products for the lowest prices.
From kitchen tiles, bathroom tiles, to interior and exterior living areas, our experienced team can help you choose the perfect tiles for your new home or renovation project. Along with helping you choose which tiles are best suited to your style and budget, we can also advise you on installation, design, and after care solutions for your products. If you are building a new home, we can even help measure your plans.
In 2005, Luke Johnson and Len Franco joined forces to create a new model in the retail tile industry. Knowing that the Australian consumer wants the best quality products without having to pay outlandishly high retail prices, together they opened Tile Factory Outlet. With Luke’s experience in the tile division of a successful auction house and Len’s experience as a well-known importer/wholesaler, Tile Factory Outlet was an instant success.
In 2009 Luke and Len re-located the business to 107 Warren Road (Cumberland Highway), Smithfield. An easy location to get to from anywhere in Sydney. After the move, TFO evolved from a clearance house to the largest single tile store in Australia, attracting customers from all over Australia.
In May 2016, Maria Franco joined the board of Directors, contributing greatly with her passion for tiles and decades of experience. Her interest in fashion and interior design helps TFO to continue achieving high standards in customer service.
Each year the TFO team visits Cersaie, Italy, the largest and most prestigious tile fair in the world. As well as Marmomacc, the Italian stone fair. There we source the latest designs and innovations in technology, bringing to you the best quality products at unbeatable outlet prices.
Maria, Luke and Len continue to pass their knowledge and experience in the tiling industry to the next generation of the TFO family allowing Tile Factory Outlet to continue to grow. Our commitment remains to provide you with the best quality products at unbeatable prices. So, the TFO team encourage you to shop around as we are confident that you will not find better value for money.
