Van Conners

Snap-Tile, LLC, parent company of Kwik-Tile, has appointed Van Conners as its new president. As one of the company’s founders, Conners had left the company in 2008 to pursue other interests, but “his passion for the product and the growth of the product category over the last few years has brought him back,” the company notes.

The company also announced its plans for relocating its assembly plant to the Dalton, GA, area in January 2011. “We feel that an American made product is important to us as a company, as well as making Kwik-Tile more readily available to our distributors and dealers.” Conners added, “We have found that moving our manufacturing facility allows us to be more responsive to our client needs, and will also allowed us to be more cost effective in our process, allowing us to offer our products at a better value to the wholesale and retail markets, and ultimately to the end users.”
