Davenport, Fla. — Blackton Inc., the Orlando firm that ranks as one of Central Florida’s largest distributors of materials to homebuilders has been selected for the eighth time within the last year as the supplier of flooring at a new D.R. Horton community.
Michael “Micky” Blackton, chief executive officer, said his firm will provide an estimated $900,000 worth of ceramic tile and carpeting in the construction of some 188 single-family homes at Meadow Walk Express, D.R. Horton’s newest Davenport community located on 4 Corners Boulevard in Davenport.
Blackton has been supplying D.R. Horton with building materials for more than 40 years. “We’re like neighbors in the community working together, contributing to each other’s success and we plan to do everything we can to sustain that,” said Blackton.
D.R. Horton’s Express Communities feature energy saving homes in a convenient location at an affordable price.
Blackton, Inc., a family owned business headquartered on Alden St. near Ivanhoe Row north of downtown Orlando, has been supplying the home building industry from Jacksonville to Tampa for six decades. This past April Blackton opened a 15,000 square foot location in Leesburg.
