Brazil’s ceramic industry sees new leader after acquisition of top producer
Elizabeth Revestimentos has been acquired by Eliane Revestimentos, a subsidiary of Mohawk Industries (NYSE: MHK). The combination of Elizabeth and Eliane, which became part of Mohawk in 2018, will make the company the leading producer of ceramic tiles by revenue in Brazil, and the second largest in the global ceramic market.
Elizabeth, founded in 1984, is one of Brazil’s largest ceramic tile manufacturers and the only national company with the capability to produce both polished and unglazed porcelain in the northeast and south regions. The company operates five industrial plants.
