Last week the Scouts took a field trip to Crossville, TN to visit the StonePeak Ceramics production facility.
We were hosted by StonePeak and our local tile distributor, Mees Distributors. The visit was informative and really interesting.
We saw the tile making process from start…To finish:
These extra large tiles are from their Plane series. They can be specified as large as 5′ x 10′ . Oh the possibilities!
They actually had a machine called the Atomizer. Reminds me of Marvin the Martian.
StonePeak brings the artistry of Italian tile making and manufacturers it here in the good ole USA. That means lead times are shorter and we actually know what is in the building material we are using, unlike many Chinese made tiles. And price points are great.
We were amazed to learn what a green company StonePeak is. From using recycled materials in their tile to their air cleaning standards, we were impressed how much this company cares.You know what else was a big surprise to all of us? The ready to ship material is stored outside. The amount of tile was staggering!We got a sneak peak of the new collections. Can’t wait to use this Zebrino somewhere.
We specified the Palazzo series in our Show House hall bathroom we recently completed.It was a huge hit with everyone. Read about it here.
A big thank you to StonePeak and Mees for treating us to this opportunity!
