Our company Ceramica Verea USA took over the distribution of Altusa Clay roof tile products earlier this 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.
