One of the largest commercial clients for our modular shelving system has been Tile America—a family-owned, Connecticut business that is also committed to supporting the local economy. They could have just as well gone for mass-produced shelving units, but they wanted custom craftsmanship that mirrored the quality of their products while also having the strength necessary to safely bear the weight of tile.
Founded in 1956, Brian Knies, the owner and president says, “Today there are 32 locations across 10 states and we still all work together as one big cooperative called East Coast Tile. I always tell people we have all the benefits of being a large company—buying power, great resources, and efficient distribution—but we have all the benefits of a being a small family business—great service, personal relationships with our customers, and the ability to solve problems quickly.”
The videos below show how the shelving reads in a variety of settings. This versatile, custom modular shelving system is patented by Get Back Inc, and it can be built in a variety of wood species and finishes to suit a host of contexts. Its balanced and durable modern design gives it mass without being obtrusive. The entire system can easily be broken down, moved, reconfigured, and upgraded.
