Las Vegas—American Olean officially kicked off its 100th year anniversary celebration with a party honoring the brand and its distributors here at Allegiant Stadium, the National Football League (NFL) stadium for the Las Vegas Raiders. The party was filled with excitement and camaraderie as the brand paid tribute to its founding principles, valued distributors and continued success over the past century.
“The success of our past, present and future is the result of the loyalty, enthusiasm and commitment of our customers and our team members,” said Hector Narvaez, vice president of distributor sales for Dal-Tile. “Tonight’s event was a celebration of the first 100 years of success and our renewed commitment to deliver sophisticated designs, incomparable commercial expertise, outstanding tile and stone products as well as unsurpassed service and distribution—for the next 100 years! As with everything we do, our primary goal is to help our customers and the end consumer succeed with American Olean products.”
According to Narvaez, many of the key moments at the American Olean anniversary party revolved around thanking valued distributors of American Olean. “American Olean goes to market via a nationwide network of the industry’s leading independent distributors,” Narvaez said. “Combining the strengths of American Olean products and merchandising with the sales expertise of these distributors results in a powerful brand that serves our residential and commercial customers, both trade and consumers alike.”
According to Jamie Tyler, president of Travis Tile Sales, Inc., which has been an American Olean distributor since the early 1980’s, American Olean has always remained a trusted partner. “American Olean has proven time and time again to be a quality company that will continue to stand the test of time,” Tyler said. “I believe AO’s success and longevity is attributable not only to its innovation of products, but really to the overall mindset of its people. Over the last 40 years, we have worked with hundreds of suppliers from all over the world and the one consistent quality that sets American Olean apart from its competitors is its peoples’ willingness to adapt—to do what’s necessary for its customers to succeed!”
Tyler also said American Olean will always be the company’s top supplier and are always willing to aide in decision making to help Travis Tile Sales grow. “We are a better company because we partner with American Olean,” Tyler said.
