missing tile distributor

I've been trying to find Mid-State Tile, a mannington mills corporation in Mt. Vernon Texas for a while now and nothing seems to be coming up. I've done all I can with limited internet searching knowledge. I have some 4 3/8 x 4 3/8 snow white cove base pieces to try and patch in. All I have is the box, and that is all the info on it. Does anybody know where this tile can be found nowadays?

What sort of info is on the box Shane ? Who the distributor is, is not the most important, it's the mfr.

No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care

Is there a stamp of any kind on the back of the tile? Even if the tile you have isn't in the original manufacturer's box, a backstamp can sometimes identify the tile's origin.

I remember both Mid-State tile and when Mannington bought them. I do not know what happened to the Mid-State / Mannington tile line. Contact them at Corporate:

Mannington Mills, Inc.
Corporate Headquarters
75 Mannington Mills Rd
Salem, NJ 08079

Good luck, my suspiction is they are no longer in business. They may have sold it and it under another brand name.

I went through this same ordeal several years ago.

I don't remember all the details, but as I recall Mannington got out of the tile business.

I did find a tile that was the same size, albeit a different shade, but I can't remember for the life of me who the manufacturer was.
