Laticrete expands Texas facility

Laticrete, a manufacturer of systems for the installation of ceramic tile and stone, recently marked the completion of an $8 million, 50,000-square-foot expansion to its Grand Prairie, Texas, manufacturing and warehousing facility.

The expansion -- which more than doubled the size of the operation to 90,000 square feet -- was done to meet increased demand for Laticrete system materials in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 28 was attended by Laticrete co-owner and senior vp Henry B. Rothberg and other officials from the company’s headquarters in Bethany, Conn.
