Mission Statement

Olde World Stone and Tile is dedicated to the manufacture and sale of what we consider the finest hand-made, cementitious stone, brick, and tile available. To meet that objective, we provide the tools and molds to help our Producers start their business of manufacturing and marketing Olde World Stone and Tile.

Olde World Stone and Tile markets the Olde World product concept and system worldwide. As a pioneer in the manufactured stone tile industry, we opened our first plant in 1992 in Port Charlotte, FL. Today, Olde World stone, brick, and tile Producers are located from coast to coast, and in countries around the world. We have become a recognized leader in this segment of the fast-growing concrete products industry.

As an Olde World Stone and Tile Producer, you'll be provided with a national reputation, tools, know-how, and the support needed to get your business going…and keep it growing! You'll manufacture products of proven quality and success. Our products have been tested and developed over many years, and are accepted by homeowners and the building industry in America, and around the world. Our many years of experience have provided us with the answers to almost any operational question you might encounter, and our personnel will always be there to share this knowledge with you.

Top quality molds are essential to manufacturing top quality products. Our mold technology is the result of years of research and development. We use the best mold techniques and materials to produce our molds. We have the ability to design and manufacture custom molds, should you receive a custom-design request. In 2004 we introduced a new line of stone veneer, brick, and paver molds, and will continue to add to that assortment in 2006 and beyond. Our main business is making molds for our Producers. As such… our success is truly dependent on your success. We will do everything possible to ensure that together, we will succeed.

Our training will prepare you to start and successfully operate your own manufacturing business with complete and total confidence. It provides in-depth training in starting, operating, and growing your business. We are here to support you with technical, operational and moral support should you need it.

Starting and operating an Olde World Stone & Tile manufacturing business, like running any business well, presents a tremendous challenge. But the benefits can be tremendous too! Aside from the opportunity for the financial rewards of ownership, and the satisfaction of being able to prosper in relation to your own efforts, you will enjoy the status of being an independent business person within your community.

And more importantly… the only one who can fire you from your own business… is you!

I look forward to the prospect of welcoming you as an Olde World Stone & Tile Producer soon.
