Now available on the Kindle, Laticrete is providing seven technical design manuals.

 

Now in its fourth generation, the Amazon Kindle enables its users to "shop for, download, browse, and read e-books, newspapers, magazines, blogs and other digital media via wireless networking." The device can be extremely helpful to those seeking technical information in a pinch, and is an ideal tool for progressive businesses which subscribe to "First Mover- Advantage (FMA)."

"We are firm believers in FMA," said Henry B. Rothberg, Laticrete Senior Vice President, Training, "We have recently developed seven eBook Technical Manuals, which are already available as apps via the Kindle online store. This makes having immediate access to key technical information from Laticrete not only incredibly easy, but also, lots of fun, as well," continued Rothberg. "We were the first company within our industry to take advantage of this opportunity. And not surprisingly, we are seeing that having our Technical Design Manuals available via Kindle proves to be extremely helpful to both existing customers and customers-to-be."

"The importance of getting necessary technical information instantly is growing and will continue to grow," said Rothberg. "And because Laticrete is a firm believer in First-Mover Advantage, we will continue to aid in this process relative to the many worldwide sectors of construction which our company serves."

The Laticrete Technical Manuals currently available on the Amazon Kindle include Animal Health and Wellness Facilities Technical Design Manual; Industrial Tile and Paver Applications Technical Design Manual; Mass Transit Ceramic Tile and Stone Technical Design Manual; Medical, Educational and Hospitality Facilities; Tiled Steam Room and Steam Shower Technical Design Manual and Tiled Swimming Pools, Fountains and Spas Technical Design Manual.

2013 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition winners

This year, the Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition, an annual awards program sponsored by Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Commission, attracted the most competitive pool of projects in the contest's history. The winning projects speak to the A&D community's commitment to using a material that is technically advanced, aesthetically pleasing and manufactured with a focus on sustainability. Nine projects in three categories were recognized: residential, institutional and commercial. The grand-prize winners include a century-old, three-floor adaptive re-use project (Schaefer-Graf Residence), a 675,000-square-foot entertainment arena (Barclays Center) and a LEED-certified government building (NIST) in addition to six projects who received honorable mentions from the jury.
