Tocci Building Corporation | Massachusetts

When the supply of high quality ceramic tile became an issue, Guastavino decided to build his own production facility. Guastavino then purchased this Woburn property. Guastavino II, a young and talented engineer, designed the new factory. In a 1907 dedication, a local Woburn paper described it as “an ornamental brick building that looks more like an art museum than a factory.” Tocci Building Corporation purchased and rennovated the decaying Guastavino Tile Factory in 1998 — nearly 40 years after its original operation ceased.
