Our Story.

Quantum Group was established in October 2002 with its first full container of porcelain and ceramic tiles arriving from South America.

Months of market research and product analysis was finally realized, and wholesale distribution was underway immediately throughout NZ by both Brent and Larry… all from a minute 120m2 warehouse in Palmerston North.

The initial product lines gained market acceptance quickly, and although tiles were only just becoming accepted as a medium for wider use – Quantum was soon landing several containers a month from Italy, Spain, Portugal and Australia.

Supported by an established and loyal re-seller network nationally, Quantum is now one of New Zealand’s leading distributors of tiles with a number of containers arriving and being distributed every week.

Alongside an extensive range of tiles, some other unique collections have joined the Quantum offer including the high quality Amorim Cork products from Portugal, and the Acoufelt brand of acoustic carpet tiles and wall treatments.
