Pletcher Sales, a long-time distributor of residential textiles to the RV industry, has added ceramic and natural stone offerings to its product portfolio through a strategic alliance with Interceramic Inc.
Established in 1988, co-owner Brian Pletcher said the firm is intent on becoming a “one-stop shop” for OEMs, sourcing products that meet a growing trend toward RV interiors presenting a home-like environment.
“We made our mark in textiles, supplying fabrics, vinyls and leathers that provide a residential look and quality,” said Pletcher, noting the Bristol, Ind.-based company also services the marine industry. “But we have grown considerably in the last five years through diversification, particularly with partners that manufacture innovative tile and stone products. They have a variety of applications in RVs, including kitchen backsplashes, floor tiles and fireplace surrounds.”
Pletcher said Interceramic is one of the largest tile manufacturers in North America, backed by a reputation for “high-end quality and world class designs.”
“Interceramic’s line complements our other products,” he said. “The RV industry has traditionally lagged behind the residential market, but we have become more proactive in finding companies that are offering new design ideas and products that consumers would want in their homes.”
Interceramic’s products are currently on display at Pletcher Sales’ showroom in Bristol.
