Wilsonart acquires Czech quartz manufacturer

AUSTIN, Texas. — Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Technistone, a Czech manufacturer of quartz stone in business for more than 20 years. Based just outside of Prague in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic, the company exports quartz slabs to more than 75 countries on five continents. In 2018, Technistone invested in upgrades to their existing Bretonstone production lines in order to increase capacity and improve design capabilities and quality. “As the demand for quartz increases in both the commercial and residential markets, the addition of Technistone allows us to better provide our customers high-quality quartz products, combined with the service they have come to expect from Wilsonart,” Andrew Korzen, VP of product management for engineered solid surfaces, said in a release. “This acquisition represents a significant commitment to our Wilsonart Quartz program and supports our mission to create surfaces our customers love, with service they can count on.”
