A producer of tile and natural stone has just opened its fourth distribution center – choosing Coral Springs as its newest location to service the growing markets in Florida.
Emser Tile opened their 220,000-square-foot state-of-the-art distribution center at 4030 NW 126th Avenue. The new location will support the region’s homebuilders, retailers, and residential and commercial architects and designers, offering them localized service, increased inventory and expedited product availability.
In Florida alone, Emser Tile operates six sales and service branches.
“Our commitment to customers includes expanding distribution services in areas where we see a need,” stated Mark Seal, vice president of supply chain for Emser Tile. “We’re excited to further support our customers in Florida through this distribution center, which will be integral in providing expedited access to our expansive portfolio of tile and stone collections to meet their project timelines.”
To celebrate the opening, Emser Tile hosted a ribbon cutting on April 16, which included Vice Mayor Joy Carter and Economic Development Director Kristi Bartlett.
“We are honored that Emser Tile chose the city of Coral Springs to expand their stellar product line of tiles and stones,” said Vice Mayor Carter. “Its investment into the Corporate Park and the jobs created adds to the city’s continued growth. We look forward to working with them as a Community Partner.”
In response to regional demand and in support of Emser Tile’s growth strategy, Coral Springs was chosen as the ideal location based on its excellent highway infrastructure and proximity to Port Everglades and the Port of Miami. The distribution center currently employees more than 30 associates.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, Emser Tile celebrated its 50th anniversary of providing tile and natural stone products in 2018. The company operates 75 showrooms nationwide with new branches opening regularly. Additionally, Emser has distribution centers in California, Texas and Virginia.
Emser Tile was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in 2019 by Glassdoor and was included in Training magazine’s Top Training 125 list for comprehensive learning and development programs.
“Emser Tile is a great example of another primary employer expanding into Coral Springs,” said Bartlett. “The Corporate Park location is ideal, providing access to two major ports for distribution across the nation.”
