100% Locally Sourced Recycled Glass
The name “Crush” stems from the fact that Fireclay sources the raw waste glass from within 20 miles, crushes and processes the glass in its local San Jose, CA manufacturing facility, and then transforms the material into stunning recycled glass tile. The result is a sustainable recycled glass tile line that is available immediately for residential and commercial projects, and contributes towards LEED construction credits.
Crush sets itself apart from other recycled glass tiles because it is:
Fireclay continues its sustainable, unique artisanal manufacturing process within its open air, energy efficient factory located in San Jose, which complements its open-air, day-lit ceramic tile factory in Aromas, CA. Fireclay can also reliably fulfill Crush orders as large as several thousand square feet for commercial, hospitality and retail projects. Since the new series is locally made, its fuel and transport costs are a fraction of those of larger, more traditional manufacturers who are increasingly outsourcing production abroad.
Crushʼs roots stem from Fairbanks, AK and Boise, ID, where the technology and process were originally developed by Sandhill Industries. Founded by Terri and Jim Raudenbush, Sandhill won the EPA Evergreen award in 2002 for its environmental excellence and leadership. In 2010 Fireclay Tile acquired Sandhillʼs equipment and technology.
