TEMPE, AZ - Arizona Tile has been awarded the 2010 Confindustria Ceramica North American Distributor Award by Ceramic Tiles of Italy. One of the largest independently owned importers of stone in the U.S., Arizona Tile has set an unprecedented standard as the first company to receive the recognition for a second time in the program’s 20-year history. The award is a badge of distinction among tile distributors/importers.

Confindustria Ceramica, the association of Italian ceramic tile and refractory material manufacturers, is responsible for representing, supporting and communicating between member companies. Ceramic Tiles of Italy is the collective institutional trademark representing and promoting Confindustria Ceramica’s more than 200 members.

“To be the first distributor to win this award for the second time is a real honor,” said Mark Huarte, Arizona Tile’s Vice President of Operations. “At Arizona Tile, we credit this award to the wonderful relationships we have built over the years with Italian tile manufacturers, in addition to our staff’s commitment to premium material.”
