Dallas, Texas—Established in 1923, American Olean is celebrating it’s 100th year anniversary this year.
“2023 is a very special year for American Olean as it marks our 100th anniversary,” said Hector Narvaez, vice president of distributor sales for Dal-Tile. “American Olean traces its roots to the Franklin Tile Company, founded in 1923 in Lansdale, Pa., by two brothers, Malcolm and Roy Schweiker with only six employees.
