Dal-Tile manufactures, distributes and markets high-quality ceramic tile products. The largest U.S. ceramic tile manufacturer, and one of the largest in the world, Dal-Tile currently operates ten manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and Mexico, and employs over 10,000 people.
The company began operations in 1947, establishing its first glazed wall tile manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters in Dallas, Texas. Since that time, company operations have greatly expanded and now incorporate the manufacture of glazed and unglazed floor tile, glazed and unglazed ceramic mosaics, and unglazed quarry tile.
In December 1995, Dal-Tile, then the largest U.S. manufacturer of ceramic tile, acquired American Olean Tile Company, the second largest manufacturer of ceramic tile. Combining the strengths of the two industry giants, Dal-Tile embarked on an aggressive multi-channel distribution strategy in an effort to reach a broad universe of customers.
