BAXTER, TN — Portobello America, the Tennessee-based supplier of porcelain and ceramic tile, has opened a new manufacturing facility in Baxter, TN, the company announced.
The doors to Portobello America’s new 986,000-sq.-ft. facility were opened at October 2023 ceremonies that included about 500 guests from around the globe, the company said.
“This facility was developed to meet the needs of American distributors,” said Cesar Gomes, Jr., chairman of the board of Brazil-based parent company Portobello Grupo. “We have built a factory here not for mass production, but for flexibility … to attain the market with the right service. Service is the key to everyone’s success.”
Guests at the ceremonial factory opening received an exclusive preview of Portobello America’s new 2023 Fall Collection, and also of its new floor and wall tile portfolio, designed exclusively for the American Market.
“Our organization was proud to present Portobello America to our guests after years of planning,” said Portobello America’s CEO Luiz Felipe Brito. “We were overjoyed with the support of government officials, the Brazilian teams, our clients, friends and family – but most of all, our team here in the U.S.”
