Assisting Habitat for Humanity

Laticrete International, Inc., a global leader in the manufacturing of innovative systems for the installation of stone and ceramic tile, donated the setting materials and provided a crew of Laticrete employees for the installation of ceramic tile floors in two New Haven, CT, homes in partnership with Habitat for Humanity from January 27 to 28.

Laticrete, with world headquarters in neighboring Bethany, has a rich, 51-year history of supporting civic causes in Connecticut and around the world. For the New Haven build, Laticrete provided a crew of 12 employees from various departments within the firm, who braved the frigid conditions to install the ceramic tile floors in the kitchen, main entrance and bathrooms of both homes. The Laticrete team was led by Art Mintie, the firm’s director of technical services and an accomplished installer, who oversaw the successful completion of the two-day effort on Rosette Street.

“Laticrete was thrilled to help out in this worthy cause,” said Mintie, who was born in New Haven. “While we manufacture and market our products on a global scale, we are heavily committed to helping the community that has been our home for more than 50 years. In typical Laticrete fashion, over a dozen employees braved the cold and volunteered their time and labor to support the New Haven chapter of Habitat for Humanity.”

Laticrete installed the floors in both homes with Laticrete® 254R Platinum Rapid Multipurpose Thin-Set Mortar, and grouted the tile donated by New Haven’s Tile America! with Laticrete® PermaColor Grout.
