Emser Tile Named Newest Distributor of Laticrete Products

Posted on 24 June 2016 by CRadmin3

LATICRETE announced that Emser Tile will distribute LATICRETE products through its nationwide service and distribution network. The partnership provides Emser Tile customers access to LATICRETE products. In turn, LATICRETE gains greater access and exposure to Emser Tile’s significant customer base.

The two family-owned companies share similar values and have seen significant growth in recent years. With its award-winning training programs and technical sales support, LATICRETE offers Emser Tile and its customers excellent service to complement its premium products. In turn, Emser Tile offers LATICRETE expanded access to the residential and commercial contractor market.

Over the past three years, LATICRETE has acquired three companies and expanded the product lines it offers. Similarly, Emser Tile has experienced significant growth over the last few years through market share gains and by expanding its national footprint with the addition of branch service locations.

“This year LATICRETE celebrates its 60th year of building a chemistry of trust with its customers and partners, and we are delighted to celebrate this anniversary by announcing a relationship with our newest partner, Emser Tile,” said LATICRETE Vice President of North America Sales Ron Nash. “Two factors drive our business, the development of innovative products and access to valued customers. LATICRETE provides the former and Emser Tile provides the latter.”

Established in 1968 and headquartered in Los Angeles, Emser Tile offers a high level of service and a dynamic selection of tile, natural stone, decorative and setting material products designed for both residential and commercial projects and applications. The company has a nationwide service and distribution network that combines the strengths of a national presence with the benefits of local service to quickly respond to changing trends and technologies.

“The addition of LATICRETE to our offerings is consistent with our strategic plans of partnering with the industry’s best-in-class suppliers and will be an important part of our program moving forward,” said Emser Tile Chief Marketing Officer Bob Baldocchi. “Easy and local access to LATICRETE products throughout our distribution network is a major win for our customers, who are always looking for high-quality products designed for their business. By carrying a full line of LATICRETE products and offering access to the company’s training programs, we can offer new options to meet their every need.”

Emser will begin rolling out the full line of LATICRETE products by July 1, 2016.

Colt Industries Parts Ways with DuPont Corian Solid Surface and Zodiaq Quartz

Posted on 09 December 2015 by cradmin

Colt Industries held a live via the Internet press conference on Dec. 8, announcing that it had cut ties with DuPont regarding distribution of Corian solid surface and Zodiaq quartz surfacing. It is unsure how this major shake-up in the solid surface and quartz industry will play out, but Colt is one of DuPont’s largest surfacing distributors, covering 17 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennesee, Texas and Southern Illinois. In place of DuPont’s surfacing products, Colt will now be distributing Diresco Quartz Surfacing, manufactured in Belgium, and Durasein 100 percent acrylic solid surface. Additionally, it will distribute GlueBoss SeamBoss and ClipBoss adhesives in place of DuPont’s.

According to the company, the change was made so the company could offer products of the same quality but at better pricing with faster turnaround on custom color orders. Diresco Quartz has already been stocked in Colt’s facilities and the company expects to have solid surface stocked by the beginning of the new year. The company also reports that the new materials will come in many similar colors as what it previous carried.
