With 10 showroom locations on the East Coast, the company has distinguished itself as a leading resource for colorful, design-driven, large-format and eco-friendly tile.
As in past years, a Supervisory Committee made up of members of the Confindustria Ceramica Board of Directors, compiled a list of criteria based on recommendations from Italian ceramic tile manufacturers. Judges' considerations included: long-term competence and skill as an importer and distributor of Italian ceramic tiles; preference for Ceramics of Italy products in light of their unique aesthetic and technical qualities; fair-trade practices in the commercial relationship undertaken with Italian manufacturers; and best showroom and corporate image. Based on these standards, Mosaic Tile Co. emerged as the clear winner -- standing out in each of the rigorous categories set forth by the Italian ceramic tile industry.
Since 1972, Mosaic Tile Co. has been dedicated to importing, distributing and marketing high-quality ceramic and porcelain tile to the U.S. It is the largest independent distributor in the Mid-Atlantic, a region which has played an important role in the development of American culture, commerce, trade and industry. With 10 design centers spanning from Baltimore, MD to Raleigh, NC, the company prides itself on its superior service and wide selection of hard surfaces from around the world.
Mosaic Tile Co.'s current inventory features a long list of Italian manufacturers, including: Atlas Concorde, Mirage, Monocibec, Serenissima, Florim, Marazzi, Del Conca, Edimax, Piemmegres, Imola Ceramica and Provenza, to name a few. Its tile gallery is filled with everything from large-format porcelains to monocottura wall tiles to meet the needs of the commercial and residential markets.This past year, its sales of ceramic tiles accounted for over 75% of overall turnover.
In addition to its wide range of tile from Italy, the jury was also impressed by the company's commitment to sustainability. A supporter of the U.S. Green Building Council, Mosaic Tile Co. brings "green" tile to the forefront of design. Its professionally trained design consultants are deeply educated on the environmental benefits of ceramic tile and up-to-date with today's most important industry standards and environmental policies. including LEED-compliant products, tiles made of pre- and post- consumer recycled material and setting materials that offer low VOC options.
