ConestogaTile's Troy, Va., showroom.

ConestogaTile recently opened a new distribution center in Troy, Va. The 25,000-square-foot distribution center - which is the company's fourth such facility - is located 12 miles east of Charlotteville, Va., and serves the central Virginia market.

To mark the event, ConestogaTile held a grand-opening program. Ninety-six attendees representing 47 companies were present, as well as 21 manufacturers who were available to discuss products and answer technical queries. The event also included several training programs, and a keynote address, "When Will Ceramic Tile Outsell Carpet," by presenter Jon Trivers.

The distribution center features a 4,000-square-foot showroom selection center. It also features several vignettes, a functioning kitchen and a home office to show how to work with virtual design programs.
