In March, Florida Tile opened a nearly 15,000-square-foot showroom and warehouse in Dallas.

Four years ago, Florida Tile began re-fitting existing showroom/warehouse sites across America and opening new ones in cities like Boise and Dallas where there is a recognized demand for higher-end tile products and a market attuned to products made in the USA.

From a one-product tile specialty manufacturer established in 1954 in Lakeland, Florida, the company has grown to become one of the leading made-in-America tile brands. Florida Tile marked the start of its 60th Anniversary March 1

In 2006 Italian tile manufacturer, Panariagroup, purchased Florida Tile. Within a year, and with a $25 million investment from Panariagroup, a completely modern Florida Tile porcelain tile manufacturing plant was opened in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. That plant now operates three fulltime shifts 24 hours a day, and products manufactured there contain a minimum of 40 percent recycled content (resulting in a virtual no-waste manufacturing site).


Florida Tile is a fully owned subsidiary of Panariagroup, a publicly owned company traded on the Milan Stock Exchange (MILAN: PAN IM). Panariagroup is a leading manufacturer and distributor in over 60 countries around the world with six manufacturing sites in Italy, Portugal and the USA and eight brands positioned in the high-end of the market.
