The New Era of Walker Zanger Starts Now
Grand opening of flagship Costa Mesa, Calif., showroom is first step in revitalizing Walker Zanger's presence across the country.
Walker Zanger, a leader in the design and distribution of luxury natural and engineered surfaces, is making a resurgence as North America’s preferred surfaces provider through their revitalized New Era, New Walker Zanger strategic direction.
The company kicked off the beginning of its “new era” campaign during the opulent grand opening of the Costa Mesa, Calif., flagship showroom on August 3, 2023.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for the Walker Zanger brand,” explained Trevor Jenkins, vice president of sales, at Walker Zanger. “Our industry expertise and portfolio of diversified leading luxury brands of tiles, mosaics and slabs position us as a powerhouse in the luxury surfaces category. With our modern showroom expansions and our promise to offer unparalleled experiences when it comes to surface specification, the Walker Zanger brand solidifies its place as one of the industry’s category leaders.”
Mosaic Companies acquired Walker Zanger and South Florida-based Opustone in 2021, and together the two brands are accelerating growth with shared efficiencies and approach to customer service. Walker Zanger’s strong legacy is recognized among designers, architects, home builders and contractors for residential and commercial design applications.
The Costa Mesa Showroom
Conveniently located close to freeway access, the combined showroom and warehouse is over 40,000 square feet. The adjoining warehouse allows clients to touch and feel a large selection of slabs in marble, quartz, quartzite, porcelain and precious stone. The showroom features a newly conceptualized Design Center where clients can easily work on specifications for their projects. Large-scale vignettes give the opportunity for the architecture and design communities to visualize their projects coming to life, becoming inspired by the limitless possibilities Walker Zanger has to offer. The showroom experience will also prioritize customer service with knowledgeable sales representatives available to help with design selections.
Beginning with the Costa Mesa location, the new showroom concept will be rolled out across all U.S. locations. Expansion and renovation plans include openings in Melrose, Calif., and San Francisco this fall. The California market continues to be an important territory for the company with the legacy brand first opening its doors over 71 years ago in Los Angeles. Walker Zanger currently has 11 showrooms and hundreds of authorized dealers across the United States that serve major metropolitan areas.
