Based in Toronto, Anatolia Tile & Stone is a privately owned 100% Canadian corporation that is growing rapidly under the direction of our President, Galip Elmaagacli.
Our mission is to offer impeccable end-to-end service and provide the most innovative and reliable inventory in the tile industry, thereby enabling our customers to satisfy the needs of their clients. Our size, strength and stability are founded on our dedication to our customers and our products.
The story of Anatolia Tile & Stone is a deep legacy of innovation and excellence whose foundation was laid in Turkey dating back to 1933 with family patriarch Bekir Elmaagacli, a real estate developer in Ankara. Since then, Anatolia Tile & Stone has grown to establish itself as a company based on passion, dedication and drive. Anatolia Tile & Stone was incorporated in Canada in 1995, founded by three siblings of the Elmaagacli Family, Bekir Elmaagacli – Managing Director, Cengiz Elmaagacli – Sales & Marketing Director and Berrin Elmaagacli – Customer Service Director. Currently, they are all actively involved in every aspect of Anatolia Tile & Stone’s operations and continue to draw strength from the business principals and integrity passed down through three generations of the Elmaagacli family. We owe our success to our constant re-thinking of how to elevate the ordinary to the outstanding, developing products tailored to the needs of our retailers, partners and consumers.
In the year 2005, the company achieved annual imports of over 8,000 containers. Building on its past success Anatolia Tile & Stone constructed its original 275,000 sq. ft. distribution centre with an inventory capacity of over 90 million sq. ft. Anatolia, in its short history is a success story, becoming the largest importer of Turkish ceramic tile in North America. In a few brief years, we have outgrown our capacity and are expanding our facilities yet again to accommodate annual imports exceeding 15,000 containers in 2016.
Anatolia Tile & Stone’s unmatched lead times, expert logistics services and integrated online portal make our distribution centre an extension of your own. The current 600,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is the largest of its kind in North America, and provides access to more than 160,000 pallets, with nearly 120 million square feet of tile and mosaic inventory ready for immediate shipment. Our scheduled warehouse expansion in 2016 is further set to increase capacity in excess of 200 million square feet of available domestic inventory, ready for immediate shipment. Our expanded, state of the art facility will support our continued growth and will set another milestone in Anatolia's history.
