Italian stone and tile manufacturer GranitiFiandre and distributor partner Western Brick, Stone, and Tile (Western Brick) have jointly opened an exclusive GranitiFiandre Resource Center in Dallas, located in the Dallas Design District at 1444 Oak Lawn Avenue, Suite 517.

“We selected Dallas for our latest Geologica Shop because of the area’s consistently strong commercial construction business that has continued despite the recent decline in residential projects,” said Jeanne Nichols, vice president-sales and marketing for GranitiFiandre in the United States. “GranitiFiandre’s premier product line encompasses porcelain surfacing collections for use in the building envelope, lobbies, offices, and residences.”

The Dallas center provides commercial and high-end residential architects and designers with access to comprehensive displays and samples of GranitiFiandre’s vast product range. The center is staffed by industry professionals from both Western Brick and GranitiFiandre, who can provide technical product details and design assistance. Comprehensive product samples and literature in a virtual as well as a “hands-on” format are available, allowing for full cosmetic and practical exploration of the company’s product offerings.

The center is officially open for business now with a formal grand opening scheduled for spring 2009. GranitiFiandre Resource Centers are also located in Boston, Chicago (Itasca), Los Angeles, and San Francisco with a downtown Chicago center slated to open in 2009.
