AHF Completes Acquisition of Crossville, Inc.
Mountville, PA, October 13, 2023-AHF Products, a manufacturer of hard surface flooring in North America, has purchased assets of Crossville, Inc., from the Curran Group, a family-owned, privately-held company. This acquisition catapults AHF into a position in the fast-growing tile sector with a comprehensive line of porcelain, ceramic, stone, and accessories for both residential and commercial applications in interior and exterior floors, walls and countertops.
With 15 brands and dozens of product collections spanning hardwood, vinyl, laminate and, now, tile, AHF has added to its stable of product offerings in the hard surface category. AHF president & CEO Brian Carson said he was drawn to Crossville for many reasons--namely, strong customer relationships; the U.S. manufacturing and product design strength; and, importantly, the company’s culture.
“Crossville is one of the most highly regarded brands in commercial and residential tile products, with widespread distribution, premium products, and a blue-chip customer base,” said Carson. “Adding a well-known and trusted brand like Crossville is a terrific complement to our legacy brands which include Bruce and Armstrong Flooring. Today, we are a more valuable supplier because we can package the high-touch service that our customers know us for with an even more diverse product offering.”
“We knew that AHF Products was the perfect fit, and the best path forward for our employees and customers. We looked for characteristics that aligned with our culture and core values. AHF and Crossville share a dedication to upholding the high standards and valued services that have shaped both of our businesses throughout the years,” said Greg Mather, president & CEO, Crossville. “This is truly a win-win outcome for everyone involved.”
Established in 1986 as America’s first large-format porcelain tile manufacturer, Crossville, located in Tennessee, is an American manufacturer of sustainable porcelain materials that advance the frontiers of tile design and performance.
“The addition of the Crossville plants and 28 company owned Studios will strengthen our domestic footprint and grow our U.S. capabilities,” said Carson.
With five acquisitions in less than five years, AHF has increased its product and service offerings for both the residential and commercial markets. Headquartered in Mountville, Pennsylvania, with the acquisition of the Crossville assets, AHF now operates 13 facilities-12 in the U.S. and one in Cambodia-and has grown to over 3,000 employees.
AHF previously acquired LM Flooring in 2019, followed by the Parterre and American OEM brands in 2021 and then Armstrong Flooring in 2022.
