Union Tiles (Pty) Ltd has evolved, from its origin in 1910 Johannesburg, as a small cement and terrazzo tile producer, to a multi faceted wall and floor tile corporation dealing in ceramic, porcelain and natural stone to name but a few, also offering a wide range of associated building material products and services
The founder of Union Tiles brought his terrazzo trade skills and knowledge from Bergamo Italy. These Italian roots and core knowledge are still firmly entrenched in the company’s management style and in the origin and development of its cementitious products, which are manufactured at the production facility near Johannesburg.
The company expanded its operation into three separate divisions under the Union Tiles banner, each specializing in different floor and wall tiles, and related products.
The ceramic division, namely “Union Mosaic & Tiles”, retails and wholesales a wide range of ceramic, porcelain, and terracotta wall and floor tiles as well as bathroom accessories and sanitary ware.
The natural stone division, namely “Natural Stone Tiles” (National Tiles (Pty) Ltd), specialises in all forms of natural materials in tile and slab form, from sandstone, slate, marble, granite, limestone, quartzite and SilestoneÂ® amongst others. Natural Stone Tiles also developed a separate division, namely; Dia Star Stone Technology (Pty) Ltd, specialising in all natural stone polishing, processing and quarrying equipment.
Finally, the mother company “Union Flooring Tiles “, is a manufacturer of a range of cementitious tiles, wall coatings and plasters, pebbles and coloured stone chips. In addition we are also suppliers of white and grey cement.
Silestone was invented in 1990. It is a product that brings together the best of natural stone and manages to improve it even further. Silestone has made an undeniable leap forward that gained the immediate recognition of professionals and end users. It has been so successful that the antibacterial, quartz worktop has become a unique category within the brand.

Its exclusive nature means that it is a brand associated all around the world with design and fashion, achieving the highest levels in innovative and contemporary design.
