2017 was an exciting year for Emser Tile. From introducing more than 20 unique new collections to opening an Eastern distribution center to earning multiple industry awards, we’re proud to share in our accomplishments with all of you.
Before the year draws to a close and we turn our sights to 2018, we invite you to reflect on our 2017 ‘year in review’ - our most popular moments on the blog this year!
In August, we announced the opening of our 400,000-square-foot Eastern Distribution Center in Suffolk, Virginia. We hosted regional dignitaries during a community-centric ribbon-cutting event and provided facility tours to those in attendance. Today, our Eastern Distribution Center proudly services our growing branches along the East Coast.
Training magazine named Emser Tile to the 2018 Training Top 125 - a global award that recognizes outstanding comprehensive learning and development programs in companies and organizations. Our customized, multi-tiered learning and development program, Emser University, is available to both associates and customers to educate on the latest tile and stone industry news and offerings. Training Top 125 rankings will be revealed in February 2018.
A creative backsplash can be one of the most talked-about design elements in a home. In July, we explored three techniques to make a backsplash the focal point of a kitchen, while complementing the space’s overall aesthetic.
One-of-a-kind residential installations are more popular than ever - creating homes to remember. We explored six unique tile patterns in master baths, dining rooms, and even a wine cellar.
Ideal for contemporary statement interiors, our Code series is a high-design wall and floor surface material with an artful display of actively shifting shapes. One of the most popular blogs this year, Code was well-received by the media and was even named a finalist for Interior Design magazine’s Best of Year Awards in the wall covering category for tile and stone.
In June, Floor Covering News recognized Emser Tile as an industry leader by honoring Emser with an Award of Excellence, voted on by retailers and distributors at Surfaces, as well as its online readership. With criteria based on customer service, professionalism of sales force, management responsiveness, value, style and design, B2B, handling of claims, and ease of business, this recognition was extremely meaningful for the entire Emser family.
Here’s to many more exciting moments to come in the new year!
