Fireclay Tile 2014: A Year To Celebrate
It has been an amazing year here at Fireclay Tile, and we wanted to give a huge thanks for all of your support in 2014. Your passion and enthusiasm for handmade tile and thoughtful design have allowed us to share our story with more people than ever before. We are thrilled for what 2015 has in store, and couldn't think of a better way to ring in the new year than with a look back at 2014. Here's to an incredible 2014, and Happy New Year!
We couldn't have had such an amazing year with out our customers. Everything we have done this year has been to make the tile buying experience better and easier for you. From offering free samples and free online design assistance to creating a brand new e-commerce experience, everything was done with our customers in mind, and we couldn't be more thrilled by the response–40,000 chat sessions, 11,543 free samples shipped?? We think that is pretty amazing.
This year we were all about product innovation. We launched 3 brand new product lines, our new Handpainted Collections, CRT Glass Tile, and our newest product, EDGE. We also introduced 12 new Express Tile colors, 12 new EDGE colors, and created over 1,600 custom colors for our customers!
Our Aromas factory went through some major changes this year, allowing us to be more efficient than ever before in our manufacturing. We installed 2 brand new kilns, moved our glass factory from San Jose to Aromas, underwent major construction and rennovations–all so we can continue to focus on sustainability and grow to accommodate the continually increasing demand for our product.
This year we stuck with our motto and brought tile to the people! We opened a brand new San Francisco showroom, , we launched a new blog experience and wrote 193 posts to give you helpful information and endless design inspiration, we launched a brand new website to simplify the tile buying experience, we introduced a hashtag so you can all share your Fireclay tile with the world, and so much more!
