Trikeenan Tileworks, a manufacturer of art tile, ceramic tile and glazed thin-brick with plants in New Hampshire and New York, has been acquired by Elgin Butler Co. Austin, TX-based Elgin Butler, a manufacturer of structural tile, is the owner of McIntyre Tile, an art-tile manufacturer based in California.

After a full year of protection from its creditors under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, Trikeenan will successfully emerge from Bankruptcy Court protection and continue to operate, now as a wholly owned subsidiary of Elgin Butler Company.

Elgin Butler has committed to making a substantial investment in Trikeenan, to retaining as many of the existing employees that are willing to work in the upgraded New York facility, and to ultimately grow the business and establish a strong domestic manufacturer of ceramic tile and thin brick in Hornell, New York. Elgin Butler will be purchasing major capital equipment, engaging major marketing and sales support resources, and is committed to supporting all of the existing Trikeenan customers in the marketplace.

Elgin Butler welcomes Trikeenan Tileworks, its employees, vendors and customers into the successful Elgin Butler family of ceramic manufacturing and distribution businesses.
