Global Ceramic
Investing in the World’s
Largest Flooring Category

In 2002, Mohawk entered the ceramic tile industry with the acquisition of Dal-Tile Corporation, the largest tile manufacturer in the U.S. with production in Mexico that supported U.S. sales.

Daltile American Olean Marazzi Ragno Kai Group Kerama Marazzi Eliane

During the following two decades, the Company invested to improve the product offering, distribution and manufacturing infrastructure to extend that leadership position in the U.S. market, become a leader in the Mexican market and expand our global footprint. The 2013 Marazzi acquisition established Mohawk as the largest tile producer in Europe and subsequent investments enhanced our capacity and product innovation. Additional acquisitions enhanced our position in Europe, and the 2018 purchase of Eliane gave us a leading position in Brazil, the world’s third-largest tile market. In 2020, the worldwide ceramic market was 173 billion square feet. Mohawk has 2% of that fragmented market, and we are investing to grow our share.

Investing in the Best

For two decades, Mohawk has acquired the premier tile manufacturers in the most desirable markets and then improved on their performance through strategic investments that elevated their manufacturing assets, gave their talented designers access to proprietary technology like our digital inkjet printing, and shared training programs and resources across the segment. We acquired the best businesses and made them even better by investing to reinforce their strengths and mitigate the challenges they faced.

Continued Commitment

Going forward, we are expanding tile capacity in markets where demand for our products has escalated. In Europe, we are targeting investments in high-value porcelain slabs with multiple applications as well as thick porcelain pavers used as an alternative to stone in landscaping. In the U.S., our quartz countertop production has been a successful greenfield launch, and we are investing to expand our capacity as we grow the business through many of our tile partnerships. In Brazil, we are adding a new porcelain tile facility; and, in Mexico, we are expanding production of mosaic tile and specialty products.


Having built our tile business through acquisitions and improved it through perpetual investment, we continue to seek appealing acquisition opportunities in markets where we already have a strong presence or new geographies to expand our footprint.

Investing in Ceramic Innovation

Extraordinary Wall Tiles

Innovative wall tile designs present great options for families that are updating their spaces as part of a historic uptick in home improvement projects. Statement walls have extended ceramic looks beyond traditional applications in baths and kitchens. We have introduced collections to suit any décor: non-uniform and ombre mosaics, distressed brick, metallics, stone looks in large and small formats, geometric designs and dynamic 3-D collections that bring a wall to life.

Exceptional Exterior Collections

As indoor and outdoor living spaces blur, the versatility and performance of our 2 cm and 3 cm porcelain pavers bring the beauty, durability and slip resistance of tile to the great outdoors. Sales of these hardscape alternatives are increasing rapidly, and they’re only part of our growing array of exterior options that include cladding for buildings, roofing systems and an unsurpassed collection of pool tile.

Multi-Functional Porcelain Slabs

Porcelain slabs are incredibly versatile, resilient and lightweight. They offer a virtually maintenance-free alternative to the scale and style of natural stone slabs at an attractive price. The slabs replicate stone or concrete visuals through enhanced inkjet printing. With their large sizes, they can be customized for use as countertops, vanities, table tops, shower walls, tub surrounds, fireplaces, floors, feature walls, exterior cladding and more. These durable products resist chips, heat, stains and scratches. With their beauty and practicality, porcelain slabs are already widely used in Europe and are becoming increasingly popular in the U.S.

The Sustainable Attributes of Tile

  • Long Lasting
    Durable tile provides reliable performance over a typical 75-year lifecycle, reducing future product consumption over generations.
  • Carbon Light
    Tile has the lifetime lowest global warming potential of any flooring option due to lower emissions during the manufacturing process; and, once installed, tile’s natural insulation properties reduce a building’s consumption of various non-renewable energy resources.
  • Sustainably Sourced
    The essential components of tile — clay, water, sand, feldspar and quartz — are natural materials, and most are sourced within 500 miles of the manufacturing site, reducing emissions from transportation. Production wastewater is recycled and reused, as well.
  • Easily Recycled
    Our closed loop manufacturing means that responsibly recovered waste — including dust, powder, unfired scrap and water — are typically reincorporated into new products. So, if a tile fails to meet our exacting quality standards, it is pulverized and reintroduced to the process. Almost all our tile products contain pre-consumer recycled content.
