Altusa made in Honduras, through Puerto Cortes there are many logistical advantages when communicating with the main point in Miami, Central, South America and also the Caribbean, with weekly departures to all these destinations, facilitating shipments between Honduras and the US.
A long trip from the origins in the Mediterranean, since the beginning of the 20th century, present in all the main markets of the US and the Caribbean for almost four decades. Today our group is excited to offer this new collection which combines tradition of many generations with a touch of the land where we are located in the heart of the Mayan world.
Our company Ceramica Verea USA took over distribution of Altusa Clay roof tile products earlier last year with the intention of continuing to import the Altusa’s roof tile profile into the North American markets of the US and the Caribbean.
The Altusa from Venezuela was a very successful tile and was a market leader from 1985 to 2006.
Unfortunately, thanks to Venezuela’s political situation and export controls, manufacturing was moved to Honduras in 2006. The Honduran Altusa tile was manufactured from 2006 to 2016 and was discontinued due to quality related manufacturing issues. Earlier this year we acquired the rights to and molds for Altusa Spanish S tile and we are beginning to manufacture this at our factory in Galicia, Spain.
The Venezuelan and Honduran Altusa products are discontinued and no longer have valid Miami Dade NOA’s and we do not recommend attempting to make repairs using secondhand or off-brand products. We have already begun testing our Altusa from Spain and expect to have approvals for this within the next 3-4 months. In the meantime, our Verea clay roof tile products are a great option as they are the most affordable priced grade 1 clay tile and offer unrivaled color permanence.
