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.
