Florida Tile's move will unite its corporate headquarters with its production plant.
Tile will be relocating its corporate headquarters to Lexington, KY. In 2006,
Florida Tile was acquired by Panariagroup, an Italian based manufacturer and
distributor of porcelain stoneware.
“With the acquisition of Florida Tile by Panariagroup came the
investment of $25M in a new state of the art porcelain manufacturing plant in
Lawrenceburg, KY. While Florida Tile has been able to operate successfully
since the closing of the Lakeland production plant, the optimal situation is to
have both the corporate and manufacturing facilities united,” the company
Further, Florida Tile says, “the uniting of the production
plant and corporate headquarters will help to maintain and further develop
their leading role in the United States tile market."
