Sun Tile Announces Acquisition of Morena Tile Retail Operations Across California

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 29, 2011

Sun Tile Inc., a growing San Diego based tile and stone wholesaler, is pleased to announce that it has officially acquired all Morena Tile operations of California. The court approved sale comes after the decades old Morena Tile sought bancruptcy protection for restructuring amid the recent housing crisis. On Friday, July 15, 2011, the operations successfully merged, which includes plans for retail expansion, adding a growing number of jobs to the horizon.

The purchase includes all Morena Tile property, equipment and retail locations across California. All Morena Tile retail staff, with high levels of skills and experience in the wholesale tile industry, are expected to remain gainfully employed and will continue to serve the company under its new name. It is with regret that management in former corporate roles will not continue on with the company. Larry Neugarten, President of Sun Tile, Inc., commented, A debt of gratitude to the prior management and shareholders is owed in building a great business in trying times. Asked what would define the people and operations of the new Sun Tile, Inc., he replied, Some think, some do, some both, but few. And for customers, excellence lies in all staff striving for this mindset.

I DOO seriously he gets soo annoying at times. my mum said that she will give me the money and I can pay her back but all he ever says is “you don’t know the value of money”.

Image by louisa_catlover
Cameron was sitting and reading in a Borders store. Noticing his unusual style, I approached him and asked if I could take his picture for my 100 Strangers project. He readily agreed. We chatted briefly and he told me that he travels frequently with his mother for her work (something to do with bankruptcy law) and is staying about 2 months in Melbourne. He calls Florida, USA home.

Cameron’s website can be found here.
