About Clayton Tile

Continuing our reputation of quality service & products through generations

From the very beginning, Clayton Tile has been about the people: from our long-standing clients to our loyal staff. Founded in 1961 by Marvin and Violet Clayton, we are a multi-generational, family-run and locally-owned tile company in Upstate South Carolina.

Our company mission is simple: continue serving the Upstate with exceptional customer care while showcasing the latest trends and product offerings in the industry.

With over 40 employees, Clayton Tile provides over 300+ years of combined experience and expertise in the design and technical aspects of the industry. We are here to assist our customers from start to finish on projects of all sizes.

Our loyal client-base includes builders, tile contractors, designers, architects, homeowners and “DIY-ers.” When you work with us, you become part of the Clayton Tile family.

Marvin and Violet Clayton founded the company in 1961. Marvin began Clayton Tile after being in the flooring industry for several years before seeing a need for a local tile company in the Greenville area. Marvin stayed heavily involved in the company until his passing in 1992. Violet retired in 1997 and turned the company over to her sons.

Current owners, brothers Lannie and Lonnie Clayton, Max (Lannie’s son), Eric and Beth (Lonnie’s son and daughter), are carrying the family legacy on as the second and third-generations in the company business.
