What type of floor tiles are these?

I am trying to identify the type and brand of floor tiles in my kitchen so I can replace a couple of them. Unfortunately, there is no box, no label and no brand identifier on them. I think they are vinyl tiles, in an off-white and black cover , with a cork backing and fit together with locking edges (see pics here). Anybody have any ideas of the manufacturer or brand name?

We just installed something similar. It is Vinyl Composite Tile.

Munchingzombie, you may be right. Thanks. I'll email the company to confirm.

If it's 13" tile, then it's marmoleum. Note that the colors may not match perfectly since it's a natural material and dye lots may vary.

Argh, just asked Armstrong, and they said that it isn't one of theirs as they don't make a locking tile. So, no go there.

Lilbunet & Nightshould, I am not sure about Marmoleum as this is cork-backed and is not glued to the subfloor: it uses a locking edge. the tiles are just under 12 inches inches on a side.
