So much more than a tagline, Proven in Tile is a proud legacy nearly a century in the making. With our roots in innovation, American Olean began as The Franklin Tile Company in 1923, as early employees pioneered new manufacturing processes that revolutionized the tile industry. A series of mergers and acquisitions aligned the company with new resources and opportunities, allowing it to continue to gain strength and credibility, with a core focus on genuine customer service. In 1959, the American Olean brand name was born, and continued to flourish over the course of the next several years with the company becoming a leading manufacturer of floor and wall tiles.
