ALIQUIPPA, PA -- Ardex Americas recently announced the acquisition of Tilite, a manufacturer of building materials for shower systems.

It will give us the opportunity to expand the footprint of our shower systems significantly while also offering more comprehensive customer service and training capabilities.”
