Crossville Tour

Last month, I was honored to be invited by Hamilton Parker totake a trip to Tennessee to tourCrossville, a tile manufacturer. I have used many various products produced by Crossville and thoroughly enjoyed learning and seeing what all goes into the manufacturing process. What I was most impressed with were the core values of this privately held company. The company believes in these five values:

  • Family
  • Partnership
  • Integrity
  • Improvement
  • Respect

As a business owner I couldn’t say it any better than these core values to lead by. I was so encouraged to not only see a company thatproduces beautiful products but that foremost stands for integrity.
Here are a few of my favorite products that I use often.

This basic white subway tile in the color by numbers series is favorite of mine. This series is great for kids bathrooms. The bright colors in this collectioncan adda splash of color and the designs possibilitiesare endless. The 4 x 8 white subway tile is a good canvas to add other tile elements like this small origins glass tile.

Thanks again to Hamilton Parker and Crossville for educating me on porcelain tile as well as a great lesson in leadership.
