Florida Tile moves to new offices in Lakeland, Fla.
The new site employs 45 people, and houses the company's information systems, human resources, accounting, sales support and corporate purchasing functions. The old site, at 1 Sikes Blvd., has been demolished.
According to CEO Buck Burwell, it was important for the company, which is now owned by a private investor group, to keep ties to the town. "Lakeland is an important part of the legacy of Florida Tile," he said in a statement.
