Portobello America's Tennessee Plant Slated to Open in April

Baxter, TN, March 17, 2023-Portobello America’s vision of having a full-service, ultramodern production facility in the United States is now on the cusp of becoming a reality. The plant is slated to be operational in April of this year. 

More than 100 new employees already have been hired, and the company’s training programs are currently being conducted for workers for the factory, administrative operations, quality control, maintenance and more. 

The new Baxter, Tennessee facility will not only be a major sustainable manufacturing factory, it will also be the new home of Portobello America’s North American offices. Baxter is located in Putnam County, considered a national hub regarding the manufacture of porcelain tile due to the local obtainability of natural clay and feldspar supplies. The new factory’s personnel plan is expected to ultimately generate at least 230 local jobs. 

Portobello America is planning a grand opening event slated for late this summer.
