Neolith Expands Global Production and Accessibility of its Revolutionary Sintered Stone for 2018

Following year-over-year sales growth and product demand, the surfacing brand will begin operations of fourth production line in Spain; open showrooms and logistics warehouse to service key markets 

The largest sintered stone surfacing brand, Neolith, manufactured by Spain-based company TheSize, will continue its global expansion with several key initiatives in 2018—including an added production line, showroom openings, and a new logistics warehouse—aimed to enhance support of the brand’s vast network of distributors, architects, designers and fabricators.

Neolith has changed the residential and commercial architectural design industry in North America and worldwide. Neolith pioneered luxury surfacing with extraordinary characteristics unmatched by natural stone, for countertops, flooring, interior wall cladding, exterior facades and more. Developing a strong position in the marketplace, Neolith is now available in more than 80 countries and has achieved a sales increase of at least 40 percent year-over-year since 2011.

“Neolith’s success can be attributed to the superior resiliency, quality and characteristics of the material itself, but more importantly, to our partners around the globe who share a passion for persistent innovation, service and design,” said Mar Esteve, director of marketing, TheSize. “As we expand in 2018, customer satisfaction and accessibility is more important than ever. We are always looking for new ways to make the Neolith experience an excellent one, for our distributors, designers and their clients, and look forward to building on that this year and beyond.”

New Production Line

Neolith’s steady increase in sales and visibility in high-profile commercial and residential projects has prompted expansion of its production capacity. At its headquarters and manufacturing factory in Castellón, Spain, Neolith will start operating a fourth production line during the first quarter of 2018. This additional line, which will manufacture slabs in 3mm and 6mm thicknesses for furniture, flooring, interior cladding and exterior facades, makes Neolith the only brand to have five kilns exclusively devoted to sintered stone.

Global Showroom Openings

With strategic distribution locations in more than 80 countries and hundreds of major metro showroom sites, Neolith is dedicated to customer accessibility and first-class shopping experiences. In 2018, the brand will celebrate openings of additional showrooms in key cities around the world, including: Madrid, Spain; Tokyo, Japan; and Ramallah, Palestine, with more locations planned throughout Europe, Latin American and Asia in the coming year. The showrooms will demonstrate unique design applications and will allow architects, designers, homeowners and building owners to better experience the versatility and performance characteristics of Neolith over natural stone alternatives.

London Warehouse Opening

In addition to new showrooms, the 2018 opening of a Neolith logistics warehouse in London, England will improve product accessibility and shipping lead times for crucial European markets.  The warehouse’s proximity to shipping ports and to the high concentration of distributors throughout Western Europe provides a logistics advantage over the competition. Carrying a centralized stock of Neolith’s most in-demand SKUs, the London warehouse opening is a strategic expansion designed to open up storage space for distributors and result in faster delivery times for projects.

In 2017, Neolith also opened a warehouse in Norfolk, Virginia to provide the same logistics benefits to the U.S. market and increased project demand, particularly on the East Coast.

With a growing network of distributors across the U.S. and Canada, the product is readily available across North America. For a location near you or to learn more, visit Neolith at

Dallas, TX – February 23, 2017 – Dal-Tile (parent company of Daltile, Marazzi, and American Olean brands) is officially launching its own “Why Tile” campaign on National Tile Day 2018.  The campaign is designed to complement the Tile Council of North America’s ongoing Why Tile campaign that promotes the use of tile.  The foundational messaging of the Dal-Tile campaign is presented via a “four Ts” message.

“Communicating the reasons why tile is an excellent flooring choice and how tile stacks up against other flooring categories is an important 2018 goal for our brands,” said April Wilson, director of brand marketing for Dal-Tile.  “Along the lines of ‘the four Cs to look for when purchasing a diamond’, we have created ‘the four Ts’ of tile to help in-store sales reps and consumers clearly understand why tile is such a smart choice for flooring.”

“We will feature this messaging in our brands’ POP merchandising, digital endeavors, sales training, and advertising,” said Wilson.  “We want our distributors and retailers to feel equipped to engage in conversations with their customers about the benefits of tile.  During the life of our new campaign, we will educate on why tile ‘Sets the Standard’ for flooring.”

The attributes of tile as presented by Daltile, Marazzi, and American Olean’s campaign are:

Tough — Tile is Tough.  Tile is innately durable and resists decades of heavy traffic.  It is stainproof, scratchproof, waterproof, and fire resistant.


Timeless — Tile is Timeless.  Tile offers unlimited color and design selections that transcend styles, as styles come and go.  It also provides a way to seamlessly connect spaces including both indoor and outdoor.


Trouble-Free — Tile is Trouble-Free.  Tile is low maintenance and easily cleaned with zero restrictions, and won’t damage from cleaning services.


Trustworthy — Tile is Trustworthy.  It’s made from natural materials and returns to natural materials.  It is green certified and completely free of any VOCs, PVCs, phthalates, formaldehyde, and other harmful chemicals.

Dallas, TX – February 20, 2017 – Daltile, Marazzi, and American Olean are offering buying group dealers the ultimate in timely product availability through innovative “locally-stocked” programs nationwide.

“Traditionally, flooring retailers are used to tile orders being fulfilled within the industry-standard lead-time of 7 to 10 days.  Our brands are innovating and drastically shortening that turn-time for our dealers,” said Jeremy Sax, general manager of dealer sales, Dal-Tile Corporation.  “Daltile, Marazzi, and American Olean brands are removing this availability barrier and essentially putting stock at our dealers’ fingertips to help them increase their sales.”

“Although an end-consumer can still select from any of our 32,000 SKUS, we are strategically helping our dealers find success by providing them with a targeted sales approach,” said Sax.  “We specifically identity those products that are the hottest sellers in various regions around the country and we locally stock those for immediate availability.  We are very nimble and through programs such as our locally-stocked strategy, we quickly meet the needs of our customers.”

“This program came into being, because we listened to our customers,” added Sax.  “We listened to our customers and then acted quickly to put together a program that will benefit their business based on their needs.  Our Daltile, Marazzi, and American Olean brands are keeping more stock locally at over 300 company sales service centers nationwide, specifically the 12” x 24” products that are the number one sellers predominately across the country, so products can now be sold as same-day pickup/delivery, or next-day pickup/delivery.”

“This is just one of the latest examples of how we listen to our customers’ feedback, acknowledge that feedback, and then make something impactful happen for their business,” concluded Sax.

Carrollton, TX (February 2018) – Interceramic makes a strong statement regarding the dynamism and contemporary strength of company’s brand and product strategy for the US market with an impressive Spring Tile Launch consisting of 18 stunning collections.

The 2018 Spring launch illustrates the company’s distinct advances in manufacturing with its Durabody Ceramic tile collections that meet the needs of the customer by combining high design with innovative and function ceramic tile.

Interceramic also continues to excel in the wall tile category, offering a beautiful new collection out of its Garland, TX manufacturing facility, while significantly enhancing its porcelain offering.

Interceramic is committed to servicing the North and Central American customer and has established an extensive distribution system in the United States that includes 13 company owned showrooms, three distribution centers and 53 independent distributors throughout the US and Canada, as well as more than 300 retail locations throughout Mexico,
Asia and Central America.

Interceramic’s dedication to manufacturing and distributing innovative ceramic and porcelain tile, accents, decos, and natural stone will continue to make affordable luxury floor coverings available to an ever thriving market.



FORESTER kicks the ever-popular reclaimed wood look up a notch with a unique blendedwood  aesthetic executed in easy-to-maintain Durabody Ceramic tile. This collection gets its one-of-a-kind look from a combination of birch, oak, pine and walnut species, as well as a mix of different cuts and textures, including hand-sawn, rotary cut, and hand-scraped.

The result is a stylized, dynamic appearance, offered in four dappled finishes: Cambrium,
a study in chalks-to-grays; Pith, an etude that ranges from very light tan to very dark oak, with stops at gray and peachy amber in between; Bark, an exploration of the oak family;
and Burl, a range of walnuts. As with all Durabody Ceramic tile collections, Forester will be equally at home in a banquet hall or a home dining room with a DCOF of > 0.42 – and is suitable for exterior use as well.

Its realistic design, color and texture will make it a showstopper regardless of application.
Forester is offered in 7” x 36” lengths.

Durabody Ceramic tiles by Interceramic® are produced using advanced technology that
allows ceramic products, such as Forester, to perform at the high standards of porcelain
tile. And you can install Forester outdoors as well!


With tones as fluid as its name, RUIDOSO is an elegant wood-look addition to Interceramic’s proven Durabody Ceramic tile collections. The rich American walnut visual of this series comes thanks to a confluence of advanced technologies as well as a wide range of unique faces, and is complemented by a complex hand-scraped texture. Its timeless color palette, inspired by the shadings of the hardwood forest, includes Sierra, the moody gray of Bay Area fog; Mesa, a light auburn hue shot through with gold; Lincoln, a rich amber with notes of oak; and Alto, a deep chocolate hue.

As a member of the Durabody family, Ruidoso is beautiful enough for the most high-end
homes, yet appropriate for commercial use with a DCOF of > 0.42. All four colors are offered in standard 7” x 36” planks.

CRESCENT plays on a lively, modern collection of marbles, rendered with a smooth satin/
honed finish. This grouping extends from the elegant Cape Grace and Spectator marble
looks, with a fresh take on the traditional; through the Villa Cora blend, shaded in sleek
tones of tan; and finishes with Fogo Island, a dramatic study in black shot through with
geometric white rules.

Inspired by natural stone and brought to life thanks to advanced technology, Crescent features more than 40 unique faces rendered in inimitable Durabody ceramic.

tile. And you can install Crescent outdoors as well!


An evolution of a favorite look, QUARTZITE is inspired by contemporary stone colors and embodies the spark and character of natural mineral tones and textures in its lyrical range.
Ivory is a frosty, yet full-bodied white, with tones of calcite; Copper is a warm blend of neutrals, with flecks of its namesake element scattered throughout; Silver strikes a cool note, blending a fugue of grays; and Iron’s metallurgic appeal originates from a synthesis of steely tones. Quartzite is veined and flecked in a tribute to the way Mother Nature created the original, its remarkable realism generated by advanced printing techniques and more than 40 unique faces and three different finishes. This new Durabody Ceramic collection is suitable for both residential and commercial use with a DCOF of > 0.42, as well as interior and exterior applications.

Quartzite is available in 18” x 36” planks, 12” x 24” planks, and 16” x 16” squares, with a

Tribeca is approved for interior and exterior use, in both residential and commercial applications. All three shades are available in 24” x 24” and 12” x 24” rectified, and 12” x 12” outlines mosaics are also available. Trim pieces include a 3” x 12” matte bullnose, a 6” x 12” matte cove base, and 1” x 6” matte cove base exterior and interior corner pieces.


Inspired by the natural distress marks found on whiskey barrels, WALKER embodies the charm and personality of weathered, water-stained old growth wood. The rich visuals of this colored-body porcelain give an authentic appearance offering all the depth and character of a walk through the aging room, character produced by advanced printing techniques and a blend of up to 60 unique faces.

Walker is offered in four colors: Steep, a warm commingling of taupe and ivory; Rackhouse, a light, nearly pearl gray shade; Rick, a darker hue of gray at the intersection of tan; and Doubler, a rich whiskey shade. The collection is rounded out with a unique chevron decorative accent, cut from the field tile for a perfect match. Walker is recommended for both residential and commercial applications, and can be used in both interior and exterior settings. All four colors are offered in 8” x 40” rectified planks, as well as 3” x 13 1/2″ left and right chevrons.




You’re off to the tropics with WILDWOOD, a warm, natural colored-body porcelain style with a soft color palette and contrasting veining providing a distinct and realistic sense of place. Inspired by warmer climes, Wildwood evokes gentle breezes and long, slow days with its mellow hues: Hazelnut White, a coconut shade with veins of tan; Acorn Beige, dusky nougat with veins of dark brown; and Chestnut Brown, a rich caramel shade veined with dark coffee shades. Recommended for both residential and commercial applications, Wildwood is also appropriate for indoor and outdoor use. All three colors are offered in 8” x 40” rectified planks.
