This acquisition aligns with MARSHALLTOWN’s commitment to offering quality, American-made tools. Both companies have a long tradition of innovation, growth, and customer satisfaction. With this acquisition, MARSHALLTOWN expands its presence and market share in the tile industry, while adding even more innovative products to its current catalog.
