In January 2022, Arizona Tile opened the doors of its newest branch located in the Portland suburb of Beaverton, Oregon. Approximately 48,000 square feet, the site is home to an interactive showroom, slab viewing gallery, and order desk. Customers can find inspiration perusing the wide variety of installation examples throughout the showroom floor as well as visualize different product selections in their home by use of an on-site touch-screen.
The new location is managed by Neil Czelder. Neil has many years of experience in the Oregon market and worked for Arizona Tile as an Outside Sales Representative prior to becoming the Branch Manager.
How does our new location differ from our competitors in the area? Our tile showroom does a great job of showing the variety of products we offer – on boards, displays and vignettes, as well as with our floor installations, which include large format tiles. The bright, open concept is very inviting. Additionally, our slab showroom welcomes customers to view full natural stone slabs as well as all of our Della Terra® Quartz colors.
What about Arizona Tile as a company makes us unique in Portland? Arizona Tile brings 45 years of experience to the Portland market and has a history of making the right choices for both our customers and our employees. We’re very customer-service oriented and look forward to delivering our high-quality products and services

What types of materials do you anticipate will do best in this market? Our depth of slab inventory, including our Della Terra® Quartz, quartzite, marble and granite, is unsurpassed in this market. Also, our tile series offer a full range of styles and colors, with many in stock locally.
Is there anything the Portland Team is doing at the local level to drive traffic to the showroom? Our Portland sales team is attending and hosting get-to-know-us events with our tile dealer network. We will continue to reach out to our designer and
contractor customers via industry events in our showroom as well.
What would you like everyone to know about your select group of employees? Our team brings a lot of experience, both in this market and at Arizona Tile. We look forward to sharing our product knowledge and passion for customer service with our new customers in Portland.
