A rapidly growing Ipswich tile company has been bought for £6million by an online retail group.

Total Tiles' revenue grew from £2milion in 2016 to a predicted £17.5million in 2020.

Last year the company celebrated being ranked as the 44th fastest growing sales firm on the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 list.

Now the Leslie Road firm has been bought for £6million by CMOStores, an online construction and home improvement products retail group.

Andy Moore, Total Tiles managing director, said: “I’m looking forward to taking Total Tiles from strength to strength with CMO’s considerable backing and assistance.
