Bob Hendon, American Tile and Stone's (ATS) Vice President and General Manager has announced that, on the heels of a new ATS facility in northwest Houston, the company's new 20,000 square-foot wholesale showroom and warehouse in Denver, CO, is open for business. The new location is at 11333 E. 55th Ave., on the city's near northeast side.
"This beautiful new facility will serve our commercial customers' needs in the Colorado and Wyoming territory, including Western Kansas. ATS will provide local sales representation and support for this important new market. Our next expansion target is Longview, TX, and we'll be announcing details soon," said Hendon.
ATS has also added a full range of new flooring and wall products to their offerings including ceramic and porcelain tile, glass tile and mosaics, wood flooring, luxury vinyl including the new, state-of-the-art Freefit and Freeform product lines, carpet, natural stone and even artificial turf. These new product collections will be exclusive to ATS due to their strong partnership with quality/name brand manufacturers.
The company is continuing a fast-paced but controlled expansion with all products being delivered by ATS's own fleet of delivery vehicles. "We believe that owning your means of product delivery is critical in the 'wholesale only' distribution business. It means you can absolutely count on delivery timetables," said Hendon. "Our stocking inventory provides a 'quick ship' capability."
The company now has showrooms/warehouses in San Antonio, Austin, Houston, Fort Worth Dallas, Denver and coming soon, Longview.
ATS has been an operating subsidiary of Acme Brick Company since 1994 and is a member of the Berkshire Hathaway family of companies headed by famed investor Warren Buffett. American Tile and Stone celebrated its 50th birthday in 2014.
