Ames Tile & Stone began in 1912 as Ames Bros. Distributors Ltd. on Alexander Street in downtown Vancouver. Founded by Cyril Ames and his brother David, Ames Bros. started as a small agency business. The partnership between the brothers lasted less than two weeks, but the company has lived on for over 100 years and has evolved and emerged as a leader in the tile and stone industry. Although the name and products have changed, the principles are the same. Four generations of the Ames family (pictured above) have brought their commitment to excellence and customer service to the communities they serve. Over the years, Ames has expanded from a small downtown office on Alexander Street to showroom and warehouse space in Burnaby, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg. Ames is proud to be on the Best Workplaces in Canada list and be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.
Ames employees are certified under the Terrazzo Tile & Marble Association of Canada (TTMAC) and have completed the Understanding the Basics of Ceramic Tile and Understanding the Basics of Natural Stone courses. These courses provide a comprehensive look at everything from the manufacturing or quarrying process through to the installation and care of the finished product. At Ames we pride ourselves in educating our staff with the latest product knowledge and industry news so that they can in turn provide the best possible service to our customers.
