Home News Dal-Tile to build new tile manufacturing plant, distribution center in Tennessee

Dallas — Dal-Tile announced plans to build a glazed porcelain and colorbody tile manufacturing plant and distribution center in Dickson, Tenn., near Nashville. The 1.4 million square foot plant is scheduled to open in late 2015 and will be the Dallas-based company’s 11th manufacturing facility in North America.

Dal-Tile president John Turner, Jr. announced the new plant at a news conference in Dickson with Mohawk Industries chairman and CEO Jeff Lorberbaum, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, and other state and local officials.

“We’re extremely pleased to further expand our manufacturing capability to Dickson and the state of Tennessee, which will grow our leading position within the industry to meet customer demand,” Turner said. “By partnering with Dickson County and Tennessee state officials, we were able to find a perfect match for our manufacturing expansion needs and continue to provide the exceptional service our customers require.”

Turner said the Dickson plant will utilize the latest advanced decoration technology, including its Reveal Imaging capability, to produce innovative and stylish ceramic tile products; the plant will also have the flexibility to produce larger format and plank format tiles marketed through its five leading brands in North America: Daltile, American Olean, Marazzi, Ragno and Mohawk. The five brands are sold through Dal-Tile’s three primary distribution channels: home centers, independent distributors and company-owned stores.

The Dickson plant will have glazed porcelain capabilities, as well as technology to meet the need of the commercial market through technical color body products, plus in-line rectification and polishing to meet market requirements.

Dal-Tile products are used throughout new residential construction, residential remodeling construction and commercial construction. In 2013, Mohawk completed its acquisition of The Marazzi Group, a global leader in ceramic tile with worldwide brand recognition and operations in the U.S., Europe and Russia. Marazzi’s U.S. operations were integrated into Dal-Tile in 2013.
