CROSSVILLE, TN -- Crossville, Inc. recently announced its purchase of 10 locations of the Building Products division of Master Tile in Texas and Oklahoma. Added to its initial acquisition of Master Tile's Eastern division locations in Central Florida in November of 2010 -- as well as previously acquired distributor locations in North Carolina and Alabama -- Crossville now owns a total of 21 distributor locations. 

"All locations will be officially changing their names to Crossville Tile & Stone," said Crossville CFO Dewayne Galey. "This is an exceptional plus for Crossville, as the Texas and Oklahoma markets are recovering rapidly and there are great opportunities for expansion and growth in these areas. It also enables Crossville to offer the best service possible to the design and construction communities."

Galey and Master Tile COO, Roger Hawkins, jointly released a statement assuring Master Tile customers that the change would not affect day-to-day business and that Crossville Tile & Stone would continue to provide them with the same product offering and expert attention they have enjoyed in the past.
