Dallas, Texas– Daltile Corporation celebrates its 75th anniversary this month. The company has been known for over seven decades as the tile industry’s leader in design, quality, innovation and service.
“It is incredible how much our company has grown since 1947 when Robert Brittingham founded The Dallas Ceramic Company in a small quonset hut in Dallas,” said Matt Kahny, president, Daltile Corporation. “From that simple beginning, we have grown into the largest tile and countertop company in the world, manufacturing products that range from 1-inch mosaics to 11-foot-tall quartz slabs and everything in between.”
Kahny noted that while there have been many changes, the fundamental values of Daltile have remained. “Chief among these values is the spirit of our people—the loyalty, passion and commitment they have for Daltile, our customers and each other. I am proud and humbled to help lead this amazing organization through its 75th year.”
As Daltile celebrates its 75th anniversary, the brand’s team members shared what contributed to its success:
“To the customer, to our team members, to our families, to the industry, to our communities and to our future,” said Chris Rogers, Daltile sales service center manager, Southwest Florida.
“When I joined four decades ago, I became part of a huge group of great people who cared about each other like family,” said Tena Boyd, senior manager community and employee engagement, Daltile. “We were a family then and we still are a family now.”
“Our ability as a company to innovate, grow and respond to the changes in the industry has made us who we are,” said Mitch Iddings, Daltile sales service center manager, San Francisco. “It is this spirit that has taken us from a family-owned business to a key part of a Fortune 500 Company and a multifaceted industry leader.”
