LOUDON, TN -- To bolster its burgeoning sales and continue to offer optimal service to Florida's residential new construction marketplace, Daytona Beach-based International Tile & Stone (IT&S) has signed on to distribute tile products produced by major Italian producer Del Conca and its North American factory, Del Conca USA.

"We're extremely excited about this new relationship," said Mike Novy, Import Manager/Senior Purchaser of IT&S. "Our company is very deliberate about the products we bring to market. Once new materials are decided upon, we nurture them, do everything possible to educate our customers (in this case, Florida homebuilders) about their benefits…and, closely monitor every step of the entire process along the way. We're quite confident that working with Del Conca/Del Conca USA is the right decision."

Del Conca USA, the North American subsidiary of Del Conca, one of the main Italian groups in the ceramic tile manufacturing industry, is now producing high-quality porcelain tile materials in the newest and quite possibly, most technologically-advanced tile production facility in all of North America. One new product line IT&S will be carrying is "Providence," a stunning modular series of porcelain stoneware tiles with the amazingly realistic look of natural wood. "It's a gorgeous collection which has the ability to coordinate with just about any design theme," said Novy. "And we love the fact that it's an Italian-designed range made right here in the U.S."

According to Juan Molina, Del Conca USA's General Manager, Sales & Marketing, "I've been fortunate to work with IT&S in the past, and know the firm as a first-class, professional organization. We look forward to a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship."
