The City of Fayette approved a sales and use tax abatement for Dal-Tile during its June 9 meeting. All council members were present for the meeting. The abatements were approved due to the company’s recently announced $2 million dollar addition and expansion of its Fayette facility. Last month, Dal-Tile announced that it is closing its Lewisport, Kent. facility, which makes a product similar to the tile produced at the Fayette plant. Valerie Watts, plant manager for the Fayette Dal-Tile facility, said the 18,000 square-foot expansion will enable the plant to make a new tile that has a precision edge. The expansion will also create approximately 25 new jobs at the facility.
