Stonepeak Ceramics, a subsidiary of Iris Ceramica, recently announced the launch of the first production line in the U.S. dedicated to 120x60-in. large-format porcelain panels. The production plant, located in the hills of Tennessee, is the first and only American tile manufacturer to produce large-format porcelain panels 6 mm to 2 cm thick in the U.S.

The strategic choice to build a production line for large panels in the U.S. resulted from the desire to mature as a global supplier and promptly meet the needs of this new, rapidly growing market segment. Offering large-format porcelain panels made in the U.S.allows for shorter delivery times, overall increased logistic efficiency, and much greater product sustainability.
