Laticrete, a global leader in the manufacturing of innovative systems for the installation of stone and ceramic tile, recently celebrated the grand opening of its new $24 million corporate campus with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Bethany, CT. The new state-of-the-art, 32,000-square-foot office building, designed and built by Pustola & Associates, signifies the Laticrete commitment to its future, and to Bethany, its home for over 30 years. It features stone, ceramic, porcelain, stainless steel and glass tiles, all which were installed with LEED compliant, Greenguard certified installation materials from Laticrete. The installation was done by leading tile and stone contractors, including Atlantic Masonry, Joseph Cohn and Son and Gady Contracting.

Dr. Henry M. Rothberg, Laticrete founder and chairman emeritus, cut the ceremonial ribbon with his wife and co-founder, Lillian. They were joined by their two sons and current co-owners, David and Henry, in front of a large crowd of family, friends, industry partners and Laticrete employees from around the globe. Dr. Steve Kaplan, President of the University of New Haven, delivered the keynote speech, on the topic of educating more engineers. In addition, Bethany First Selectperson, Derrylyn Gorski, praised Laticrete in her opening remarks, describing the firm and its personnel as “wonderful corporate citizens.” Joan McDonald, Commissioner of the State of Connecticut’s Department of Economic and Community Development, also addressed the crowd, emphasizing the presence of the Laticrete® System in signature building projects around the world. She also drew a parallel between Dr Rothberg’s inventions that changed the tile industry, with other famous Connecticut inventers, including Charles Goodyear and Samuel Colt
