Dal-Tile to Build Floor Tile Plant in Oklahoma
Dal-Tile International Inc. plans to locate its newest state-of-the-art floor tile manufacturing facility in Muskogee, Okla. Development plans for the site are being finalized by the company, the Muskogee City-County Port Authority, the City of Muskogee and the State of Oklahoma. Initial production at the plant is anticipated in the third quarter of 2002. The plant will produce state-of-the-art, high quality floor tile and will be one of the largest and most cost-effective tile facilities in the United States. After an extensive six-month site search, Dal-Tile selected Muskogee because of the availability of a trained workforce, rail and water distribution availability, a positive business environment and the overall quality of life the area offers.
