Anatolia Tile + Stone announced today the expansion of their operations to Savannah, creating 124 new job opportunities and investing $98 million at two facilities at the Savannah River International Trade Park. Anatolia expects to bring in an estimated 10,000 to 15,000 TEUs through the Port of Savannah annually within the next six to 10 years.
“As we expand our operations globally, our primary focus is on continually enhancing the customer experience, providing the highest quality product through superior supply chain management. We are thrilled to be opening up state-of-the-art facilities in this prime location with proximity to the Port in order to further augment the accessibility of premier tile and stone products to our valued customers, serving as an extension of their own warehouse inventory. So far, we have had great success in opening the first facility and onboarding some great talent who have been instrumental in ramping up our Savannah operations. We are excited for this next chapter of Anatolia’s journey and look forward to further growth and success with our partners at the Port of Savannah and the Georgia Department of Economic Development,” said Anatolia Tile + Stone’s Co- CEO Bekir Elmaagacli.
Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Pat Wilson said that Anatolia is a welcome addition to Georgia. “We are excited that Anatolia Tile + Stone has chosen to locate their new distribution facility in Savannah. Announcements like this one are a testament to our state’s pro-business climate and world-class logistics network. With access to the Port of Savannah, one of our state’s top economic development tools, I am confident that they will find success in Georgia.”
Anatolia Tile + Stone, headquartered in Vaughan, Ontario, is a leading source for ceramic and stone products. They supply to some of the largest distributors throughout United States and Canada.
“Working alongside our partners at the Georgia Department of Economic Development and the Port of Savannah, we were able to work to bring Anatolia Tile + Stone here to Savannah, which means 124 more job opportunities for our region. We are excited to have this stellar company here in Savannah,” said Savannah Economic Development Authority President and CEO Trip Tollison.
Georgia Ports Authority’s Executive Director Griff Lynch added, “Anatolia Tile + Stone’s decision to locate in the Savannah River International Trade Park is a big win for the area and for the company. With its new location only five miles from the Port of Savannah, the distribution center will take maximum advantage of the quick turn times at Garden City Terminal. The expanding trade park also allows for the Ontario-based company’s future growth in Savannah.”
