ORLANDO / POINCIANA — Blackton, Inc., one of Central Florida’s largest and most active suppliers of materials for the homebuilding industry was awarded a contract from national builder Maronda Homes to provide flooring for new single-family homes at Indian Lakes Estates in Polk County.
Michael “Micky” Blackton, chairman of the firm, said the contract – valued at nearly $50 million through buildout — is for supply of up to 8,000 single-family homes Maronda plans to build at Indian Lakes Estates, a resort-style community located within master planned Poinciana.
Work started in early October on more than a half-a-dozen of Maronda’s new homes under construction, he said.
“There’s no slowdown in homebuilding in Polk County, especially for one of our oldest customers, Maronda Homes,” said Blackton.
The family-owned business headquartered on Alden St. north of downtown Orlando – with branch locations in Leesburg, Daytona and South Orlando, has been supplying the home building industry from Jacksonville to Tampa for more than six decades.
