Mark and Rachel Pepperell started trading as Suspended Ceiling Services (SCS) in August 1988 with only $2000, no vehicle, and no idea of what lay ahead. SCS soon grew and expanded its service offering to include plasterboard linings, plastering, steel stud partitioning and insulation.
In 1991, Suspended Ceiling Services became a Limited company, and took on the now well-recognised name of Waikato Suspended Ceilings Ltd (WSCS). Mark and Rachel had by then employed up to 21 staff, some of which are still with the company today.
In 2006, Daniel Pepperell opened Bay of Plenty Suspended Ceilings in Tauranga, after learning the skills working for WSCS since leaving school.
In 2009 the decision was made to join Bay of Plenty Suspended Ceilings and WSCS and together. Father and son started working side by side, together owning 100% of both businesses.
Their hard work and resilience right through the global recession paid off, and Waikato and Bop Suspended Ceiling Services Ltd employed over 70 staff working over two branches in Tauranga and Hamilton. Cementing themselves as a major part of commercial construction in the region.
In 2019, with an expansion to Auckland on the horizon it was time for a new look and name for the business: Tika Interiors Ltd.
