Laticrete’s Shanghai Building Material Co.

Laticrete’s Shanghai Building Material Co. in China has earned top-ranking ISO 14001 certification for minimizing negative effects on the environment.

The wholly-owned Shanghai manufacturing facility, opened in the Spring of 2008, has been certified ISO 14001 for its design and implementation of an environmental management system that’s been proven to reduce energy costs and wastes while minimizing the facilities negative impact on the environment. The core set of standards and guidelines have evolved slowly since 1972 and the certification is now rewarded based on a comprehensive on-site audit by the International Organization for Standardization.

Laticrete ceo/chairman, David Rothberg, referred to the certification as “another special milestone in continuing the philosophy developed and practiced by our founder Dr. Henry M. Rothberg.”
