Best Tile Brings Its Distribution Strength to MAPEI Products

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL-- Mapei, manufacturer of tile and stone installation systems in the global market, has partnered with Best Tile, one of the strongest independent distributors on the East Coast of the United States, to provide Mapei’s total line of products to flooring contractors from North Carolina to Maine.

“We have worked with different members of the Best Tile organization, and now we are very pleased to have the entire group carrying MAPEI mortars and grouts in all 31 locations,” said Steve Cameron, Mapei’s Sales Director for the northern United States. “Through a mutual effort, we have identified the needs of our market and are prepared to support contractors with a superior distribution network, customer service and technical support.”

Best Tile personnel have attended the Mapei Technical Institute (MTI) in Deerfield Beach, FL, to gain added insight into the products and the latest methods for installing tile and stone. Mapei is also providing training in its new MTI branch at the New Jersey Mapei manufacturing facility. Mapei and Best Tile have planned events throughout the summer to introduce and promote Mapei’s installation products to contractors.

Best Tile represents the strength that independent distributors bring to Mapei’s efforts to build its brand and grow market share among professional contractors. “We manufacture a heavy product that needs to be warehoused and distributed locally on demand,” Cameron said, “and Best Tile has a superior reputation for reliability and customer service in this region.”

“Best Tile is very pleased to provide a platform for customers to access some of the premier products and brands in the tile, stone and setting material categories,” said Ben Mednick, Vice President of Best Tile.  “As a family-owned independent distributor, with a 57-year presence throughout the East Coast of the United States, we stake our reputation behind the brands that we offer to our broad customer base. Mapei represents the type of top-quality brand that we are proud to include in our product line-up.”
