Laticrete ranked first by independent research report

November 26, 2013
BETHANY, CT -- Clear Seas Research, an independent market research firm, gave Laticrete top marks among manufacturers for service, support, training and product performance in its new 2013 CLEAReport on Tile and Stone Installation Contractor Market Survey.         

Contractors in our market were asked, "What one brand is best for…" and Laticrete was ranked first in customer support, technical support, sales representative support, website and warranty. Laticrete also tied for first in brand name/reputation, breadth of product line, best overall product performance, availability and best training/tips.  

"Without the dedication and hard work of our incredible employees and distribution partners, we couldn't make this happen," said Edward Metcalf, Laticrete President North America. "We strive every day to provide the best construction solutions to our contractors and can't thank them enough for helping make Laticrete number one."

The overall purposes of the study were to measure opinions and understand current trends from professionals involved in the tile and stone installation industry. The study focuses on all major types of tile and stone installation products, including setting materials, surface preparation, finishing products and tools/equipment. This in–depth industry study provides accurate and up to date information on current and future product demand, competitive positioning and green building.
