Laticrete has been named Supplier of the Year by the Ceramic Tile Distributor’s Association (CTDA).

"We are many individuals worldwide united in a common mission—to provide world class products and services to our customers and industry partners around the globe,” said Ed Metcalf, president of Laticrete's North America Division. “We consider it a humbling validation of our founding principles that the membership of the CTDA has selected Laticrete as Supplier of the Year. We highly value the true partnership and trust that we share with our customers, and strive daily to be worthy of their longstanding support.”

The award was presented by Rick Church, CTDA's executive director, and accepted by Metcalf last week during Coverings in Orlando, Fla. The award presentation was followed by a reception which included other U.S. tile trade associations.

The CTDA Supplier of the Year is selected based on results of blind balloting by CTDA members who named their top suppliers and ranked them in terms of innovation, quality, service and other measures.

“This award was earned by every Laticrete team member who takes pride in their work—at every location—from our receptionists to our shipping clerks and to every person in every role in between," added Metcalf. "These are the people who have earned this recognition, and in their names I gratefully accept it."
