American Marazzi Tile

November 18th, 2007 · No Comments

Marazzi Tile was founded by Filippo Marazzi in Sassuolo, Italy in 1935. The original plant was constructed on a wooden platform attached to four conveniently located poplar trees. From that humble beginning the company has grown into a global network called the Marazzi Group, the largest producer of glazed and unglazed ceramic tile in the world. The Group consists of 16 manufacturing plants with approximately 4,000 employees that produce and sell over 800 million square feet of tile per year.

The Group has always been an innovator, the leader in technology and design rather than the emulator. From Marazzi came the first mass production of multi-colored, patterned tile using the silk-screen process. Marazzi developed and patented the monocottura (single-fired) process that continues to be state-of-the-art technology in the ceramic industry today. Another giant leap was accomplished by Marazzi with the introduction of the rotocolor silk-screen technology that allows detail and variations never before achievable with previous glaze methods.

As an integral part of the Marazzi Group, AMERICAN MARAZZI TILE, was incorporated in 1980 with the mission of becoming the premier domestic manufacturer in North America. Built from the ground up, the original factory began production in September, 1982 – we’re now celebrating 20 years of manufacturing in the United States. Continued growth and financial stability have allowed ongoing plant expansions to bring increased capacity and greater flexibility. Located in Sunnyvale, Texas (that?s east of Dallas y?all) the company employs 390 people and produces over 100 million square feet of tile per year.

We’re not about to rest on our laurels, although we want you to be assured of our capabilities. Past performance is a proven indicator of future performance – count on American Marazzi Tile to outperform the competition!
