Crossville

As the first tile manufacturer in Tennessee (est. 1986), Crossville is the leading American manufacturer of beautiful, sustainable solutions that advance the frontiers of tile design. From introducing the nation’s first large-format porcelain tiles, to becoming the first and only net consumer of tile waste materials (meaning we recycle even more than we produce), to developing cutting-edge performance innovations that turn mere surfaces into “breathing” living environments—we are committed to pioneering products and practices that change the way the world views tile. A Curran Group company, Crossville is part of a family-owned, privately held corporation dedicated to building on the values of family, partnership, integrity, improvement and respect.
