4/3/2023, Clarksville, TN. – With the initial $35 million dollar expansion plan announced over one year ago, Florim USA started the production of gauged porcelain tile with the installation of the latest press technology the CONTINUA+, by SACMI.
CONTINUA+ technology has revolutionized tile manufacturing, transitioning form traditional press or mold production to production capable of a new level of size flexibility, and thicknesses expanding, the number of possible applications. Because of this new technology Florim USA will be able to expand its USA production to include sizes 48”x48” and 48”x110”, with thicknesses ranging from 6 mm to 12 mm. This new technology also incorporates state of art digital decoration and unmatched surface shine. Gauged porcelain in 48”x110” has traditionally been limited to imports. Florim USA will now produce this format in its Clarksville, TN factory.
The first CONTINUA+ collections, with a variety of looks including a sustainable option, will be displayed at the upcoming Coverings 2023 event in Orlando, Florida at Booth #3212.
