Elgin Butler Acquires Trikeenan Tileworks

September 27, 2011

Elgin Butler Co. recently announced it has acquired Trikeenan Tileworks, a manufacturer of art tile, ceramic tile and glazed thin brick with plants in New Hampshire and New York. After a year of protection from its creditors under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, Trikeenan will successfully emerge from bankruptcy protection and operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Elgin Butler.

Elgin Butler has reportedly invested significantly in Trikeenan to retain many of the existing employees who are willing to work in the upgraded New York facility, and to ultimately grow the business and establish a strong domestic manufacturer of ceramic tile and thin brick in Hornell, N.Y. Elgin Butler reports it will purchase major capital equipment and engage major marketing and sales support resources, and will support existing Trikeenan customers in the marketplace.
