New eco-friendly tile manufacturer

FULLERTON, CA -- EcoSpec Tile LLC was established February 1 of this year, by a group consisting of experienced/time-tested tile professionals who collectively feel a strong responsibility to their industry -- and, to their planet.

The initial product offering includes sustainable tile material composed of 50% pre-consumer waste, 20% post-consumer waste and 30% new material recycled contents, all obtained in the Southern California area. Tile formats range from mosaic tile sized 2 x 2 inches up to 12- x 12-inch field tile. Additionally, brick-sized tiles -- ranging from 1 x 8 to 4 x 8 inches -- are also available. The EcoSpec collection may be specified in matte, gloss, crackle and hand-painted surface finishes.

"EcoSpec Tile has been strategically developed to make customers' projects sustainable without sacrificing control or expense," said Kathy Stoffer of EcoSpec Tile's Sales and Marketing Department. "We intend to not only meet, but clearly exceed, clients' expectations within the green arena.

"EcoSpec Tile recognizes the importance of using resources responsibly," Stoffer went on to say. "We are committed to spreading green awareness in our interactions with customers, employees, the government and our community. Prior to our launch, it was vitally important that our team developed products which were LEED-certified."

The new product line will be marketed to both a professional marketplace consisting of architects, designers, tile dealers/distributors/contractors, builder/developers and commercial end-users as well as to homeowners, according to Stoffer. A new Web site can be found at www.ecospectile.com.
