Manards ceramic tiles sold at UK auction: ‘We were shocked’
MANARDS ceramic tile sold at a British auction for £5.5 million has sparked outrage over the treatment of the tiles.
The tiles, sold by the furniture maker as part of a collection for a man, are thought to be the product of a moulding process that is not permitted under British law.
Manards ceramic ceramic tile has been in the news recently after a report by the BBC uncovered evidence of the company’s involvement in a range of other illegal activity.
A spokesman for Manards said the company had “never been responsible for the moulding of the ceramic tiles.”
“Our ceramic tile is of the highest quality and we have been working with the authorities for more than a decade to protect it and ensure that we do not knowingly allow moulding to take place,” the spokesman said.
“We have been the victim of many legal actions in the UK and around the world for our ceramic tiles, but we have always maintained that we are the sole source of ceramic tile for this company.”
We are committed to ensuring that ceramic tile supplies in the world’s largest and most diverse supply chain are safe and secure, and we are continuing to take steps to address the problem.
“According to the BBC, the tile was first discovered by a contractor who discovered cracks in the ceramic tile filler in 2005.
A subsequent examination revealed that the tile filler had been used as a building block to make the ceramic in the first place.
The tile filler is also made by a different company, and the company that makes it says that the clay used in the mould is a product of an industry that is illegal in the United Kingdom.
The BBC reports that the company told the BBC it had been advised by the government that the product was not to be used for ceramic tiles.”
The supplier told us that they had never been responsible, in any way, for the molding of ceramic tiles and that we were to assume that all ceramic tile used in their ceramic tiles was a product that had been manufactured by the same company, the company which is also responsible for ceramic tile,” the company said in a statement to the broadcaster.”
They said that if they ever found out about any other illegal products in the supply chain they would take action against the supplier and their suppliers, and that they would make sure that any other suppliers did not use the same type of ceramic as ours.
“The tiles were sold to an unnamed buyer in June and were subsequently removed from the building site.
The BBC reports the buyer, who is said to be a family member, said that he had “no idea” what the ceramic was made of.
Managers at the Manards factory told the news channel that they were not aware of the contamination and that the tiles had been sold as “batteries and insulation”.”
We have always been fully compliant with the requirements of our suppliers and have always done our utmost to protect and protect the products,” the spokesperson told the British news agency.”
Any suggestion that we’ve ever done anything wrong is untrue and is simply wrong.
