History of Lexatonia Tiles - A Family Business

Lexatonia Tiles is a proud family run and owned business. Established in 1975 in a small town of Bathurst in NSW, the creator Tony Maroun conceived the name "Lexatonia Tiles". Tony opened his first showroom offering a supply and fix service, and quickly earned a good reputation as a young and energetic man, whom was determined to succeed, no job was ever to big or too small. Tony Maroun, a man of integrity, whose secret to success is the simple formula of hard work, loyalty and honesty. Tony has now expanded alongside his son Darren Maroun, and his grand-daughter Chaneal Maroun, having stores in New South Wales and Victoria.

The business has been run by three generations of the Maroun family, making Lexatonia a personal and unique organisation. 

Large Tile Supplier in Melbourne and Sydney

Having supplied to almost every residential home and commercial property in the Greater Western District, Lexatonia wanted to make a bigger impact in the industry, which next led Tony to expanding their operations to supply to a larger market in Sydney in 1976. From here on Tony made his first trip to Italy to explore the possibility of importing their own range of ceramic tiles to Australia. In 1978 Lexatonia received their first container of imported ceramic tiles, and had the exclusive rights to be the only New South Wales distributor. To this day, Lexatonia Tiles still imports from all around the world, including Spain, Italy, Brazil and the Asia Pacific. Once Lexatonia Tiles had made their mark in Sydney, the next big step was to open their next showroom in Melbourne, established in 1994, grounded on Mahoneys road in Thomastown. Lexatonia Tiles has made a massive impact in the industry and is now looking at ways to expand in the direction of bigger and numerous stores Australia-wide!

 

Fun Fact: Lexatonia was the first to introduce the size 200x300 wall tiles into the Sydney market, and in 1995, Australian Customs recognised Lexatonia Tiles as the largest volume importers of ceramic tiles.
