Laticrete expands to meet demands
January 1, 2007
Rather than uproot from what has been its home for 30 years, Laticrete International Inc. opted to expand its Bethany, Conn.-based plant to meet continued growing demand for its products. According to the tile and stone installation company, its new facilities will comprise 32,000 sq. ft. of corporate offices and 110,965 square feet of manufacturing and warehousing space, more than tripling the size of its existing facility.
“Bethany has been our base for three decades,” said Laticrete CEO David Rothberg. “We love the quality of life here, and local officials have helped keep our business in the town that we are proud to call home.”
A ground –breaking ceremony was held recently celebrating the $20 million plant expansion. In attendance was chairman emeritus Dr. Henry M. Rothberg, who founded Laticrete in 1956, with his two sons and co-owners, David and Henry B. Rothberg. In addition, Laticrete vp of operations JB Bouldin and local government officials were present at the ceremony.
