Welcome To Ellingsworth Tile Company Located in Morehead City, North Carolina. We are a
family owned and operated business. Officially started in 1973 with me "Jay Ellingsworth" and
my wife "Sherry". After a year or so, with my son Jason growing up out of Nursery School my
wife had to change her employment to accommodate the raising of our family and to pursue a
carrier with the U.S. Postal Service. I stayed to the grinding wheel of ceramic tile because of
my passion for hard work, discipline and appreciation of starting a project and bringing the
project to full term and fulfilling the expectations of everyone involved.

This business has seen the many changes that have occurred in the building industry and
especially the Ceramic Tile Industry in terms of tile materials and methods of application. I
have seen the changes from when I could purchase tile for less than twenty five cents a
square foot. Oh the days when, when a full sized pick up truck loaded with tile materials was
less than $300.00. Of Course in relation to other building supplies, I'm sure we have all seen
the changes! Along with cost changes, methods of applications, training techniques and more
hard work and continuing improvements to our trade, quality installers are becoming very hard
to find. My son Jason, as grown up in this business and is the Best I have ever seen! Thats
something we say quit a bit in the South East!Jason is 36 years of age now and has 3 young
boys that maybe one day will join him in continuing this legacy. Jason's brother, my youngest
son, was with us until April 23rd, 2006. He turned 26 April 16th, 2006 and the good Lord
needed him but before he left us, Justin helped steer us in the right direction and his
contributions to us and to others will never be forgotten as  he is always with us!

We @ Ellingsworth Tile Company, still maintain expertise in workmanship, compassion and
ideas that this business was founded with. We welcome everyone to share with us their needs
and wants to accomplish their dreams while building there dream house or renovations or just
a small project to further their skills in ceramic tiles as we have the most popular colors and
assortments, sizes and the most dense ceramic materials available we handle ceramics from
basic white body walls and floors thru Quarry backed glazed to solid porcelain glazed and
unglazed to Travertine stone, Marble and Granite. Basically we purchase from distribution
centers all over the United States but try to keep our business purchases  within the
distribution centers on the East Coast from Maine to Florida.
It takes a lot of "want", a lot of "patience, a lot of "work" and about a table spoon of
"compassion" to maintain a business that deals with such a huge diversity of people, ideas
and materials for as long as we have over 35 years. We could not maintain without you. We
welcome you to visit with us.
