The company changed its name from Gehri SA già Christen + Tobler to Gehri Piastrelle SA.
The premises were expanded with the construction of a natural stone processing workshop. This was an important step for the company, as it meant that it no longer just dealt in “tiles, terracotta, and mosaics” but instead moved into the world of natural stone.
The company created a new showroom with a sales area spanning over 500m2. Public opening hours were extended, meaning visitors could also drop in on Saturday mornings between 8:30 and 12:00.
