CHARLOTTE, NC — Caesarstone U.S., the Charlotte, NC-based manufacturer of engineered-stone countertops, has acquired Omicron Granite & Tile, a major supplier of quartz and stone surfaces, the companies announced.
The acquisition, whose terms were not disclosed, will dramatically increase Caesarstone’s distribution network and provide 17 new North American locations from which Caesarstone will operate and distribute its products, the company said.
Based in Pompano Beach, FL, Omicron Granite & Tile, has owned and operated 17 showrooms and indoor warehouses across the Southeast and Ohio Valley regions of the U.S. Eleven of the locations are in Florida, while others are in Detroit, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, OH and Mobile, AL, according to the company.
“This acquisition enhances Caesarstone’s value to customers and consumers as Omicron’s geographic footprint will further extend our distribution initiatives and drives our ability to accelerate growth in these two key markets,” said Ken Williams, president of Caesarstone North America.
“We are thrilled to find a strong strategic partner with Omicron, whose high-performing teams, and strong customer base fit seamlessly in our accelerated growth plans,” Williams said. “Combining these two organizations will unlock synergies that create value for all internal and external stakeholders, and further opportunities to grow the Caesarstone brand.”
