AUSTIN, Texas -- Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces has signed an agreement to acquire Technistone, a.s., a manufacturer of quartz located near Prague in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic.

Technistone exports quartz slabs to more than 75 countries worldwide on five continents. In 2018, Technistone completed significant investments to upgrade their existing Bretonstone production lines to increase capacity and improve design capabilities and quality.

Technistone is recognized for its quality and premium technical stone with a sophisticated system of objective color measurement.

“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,” says Andrew Korzen, V-P, product management, engineered solid surfaces, Wilsonart. “This acquisition represents a significant commitment to our Wilsonart Quartz program.”

Wilsonart Quartz, introduced in 2015, features a collection of design and color options, including large-scale movement patterns and elegant, low-contrast designs, all for commercial and residential use. For the latest offering, visit http://www.wilsonart.com/quartz
