The leading tile and slab distributors in the U.S.
In 1977, after 10 years of playing football at the collegiate and professional levels, Heisman Trophy winner John Huarte decided to focus his leadership and team-building skills on a new business endeavor. He took a leap and signed a lease on the back of a cardboard box and opened the first Arizona Tile location in San Diego, California.
Forty years later - With hundreds of employees, nearly half of which have been with the company for over a decade, and many who have been with the company since the beginning, unparalleled customer service, and products from around the world - Arizona Tile has become one of the leading tile and slab distributors in the U.S. “Our success solely comes from the vision that John and (his wife) Eileen Huarte had for this company when starting it - the sensibility that our relationships with our customers and our fellow employees are the most important aspect of what we do,” said company President, Bob Traxler.
Every product we purchase must pass a detailed inspection before it is shipped to Arizona Tile and ultimately, our customers. All products undergo a rigid quality control process including both automated and human inspection, utilizing the most advanced technologies available in the market today.
