John Toepfer

President
Born and raised in New England John Toepfer opened Brick House Tile in 1984 with his mother Alice. John came from a remodeling career specializing in older homes. He discovered that finding ceramic tile in northern New England was next to impossible so most of the tile used in his projects was brought to New Hampshire by Alice from Ohio. Alice and John discovered a need in their community and decided to open a tile store. They worked together for ten years before Alice retired. John continued to bring in tile from around the world and in 2010 purchased and produced the hand crafted Cider Press Tile line in Keene NH.
