Douglas Jones salutes their founder Robin Douglas-Jones, who passed away in his sleep on 16 March 2013.
Robin began his career in Port Elizabeth, with Tub and Tile, later known as Kenzan Tiles.
After selling Kenzan Tiles in 1998, he started Douglas Jones Mosaics – a company specialising in mosaics and décor tiles.
His passion for unique and inspiring decor developed while still in the retail tile sector. He dearly wanted to provide more options to the limited decorative alternatives that were available at the time.
Robin was succeeded at Douglas Jones by his son Anthony several years ago, although he has always maintained a healthy interest in it’s success.
