Dal-Tile International Inc. plans to locate its newest floor tile manufacturing facility in Muskogee, Okla. The plant will be situated on approximately 150 acres along State Highway 165 near US Highway 64. Development plans for the site are being finalized by the company, the Muskogee City-County Port Authority, the City of Muskogee and the State of Oklahoma.

Initial production at the plant is anticipated in the third quarter of 2002. The plant will produce state-of-the-art, high quality floor tile and will be one of the largest and most cost-effective tile facilities in the United States, the company said.
