ARTO was founded in 1966 in Gardenia, California, and offers stylish tile and veneers. The spirit of conservation pervades their production process and business practices. Practices such as recycling production water and using shredded office paperwork as packaging not only minimize their waste stream but also their costs so they can offer the best possible product at the lowest possible price.
Nearly all raw materials used by ARTO are locally sourced to reduce transportation impacts and our protective foam and cardboard packaging both include large proportions of pre- and post-consumer recycled material.
The vast majority of ARTO products are made to order with a quick lead time with only a few core items stocked to reduce waste and inefficiency. Most surplus material is donated to Habitat for Humanity for resale or use in their projects.
