LATICRETE International, Inc. is a worldwide manufacturer of tile and stone installation systems. The company was founded in 1956 by Dr. Henry M. Rothberg and Lillian R. Rothberg. With a tile fixing background and a chemical engineering degree, Dr. Rothberg was determined to bring improvements to centuries old Portland cement based tile and stone installation products. Dr Rothberg’s work in this area is the basis for all modern tile and stone adhesives.
