America’s leader in beautifully sustainable tile
As the first tile manufacturer in Tennessee (est. 1986), Crossville is the leading American manufacturer
of beautiful, sustainable solutions that advance the frontiers of tile design.
Choosing Crossville, Tennessee as home for Crossville Inc, was also by design. Located in the hills of
the Cumberland Plateau and true to sustainable design, Crossville was chosen as home because of its
central location to all primary raw materials. To this day, Crossville is no further than 350 miles from the
sourcing sites of its porcelain and natural stone raw materials.
From introducing the nation’s first large-format porcelain tiles, to becoming the first and only net
consumer of tile waste materials (meaning we recycle even more than we produce), to developing
cutting-edge performance innovations that turn mere surfaces into “breathing” living environments—
we are committed to pioneering products and practices that change the way the world views tile.
A Curran Group company, Crossville is part of a family-owned, privately held American corporation
dedicated to building on the values of family, partnership, integrity, improvement, and respect
LCAs & EPDs
The latest LEED V4 standards call for increased building and finishing product transparency through Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs).
LCAs study the impact of a product on the environment from sourcing through manufacture, distribution, use, removal/disposal and renewal (through recycling or other means).
EPDs are individual product summaries, similar to nutrition labels on foods, that present a snapshot of key information gained from LCAs to allow designers and architects to clearly evaluate the sustainability of a particular product over its entire life cycle.
Together, these two tools help standardize sustainability reporting across industries, and make the process of choosing eco-responsible products simpler, smarter and more transparent.
Crossville adheres to LEED V4 Standards for LCA- and EPD-driven product transparency by providing this reporting on all of our sustainable tile products and solutions.
