Laticrete is expanding its footprint in Canada with a new office in Tecumseh, Ontario. The new business effort strengthens the company’s Canadian presence and provides a base to grow the sales force in the region.

“We are excited to welcome Laticrete to Tecumseh,” says Gary McNamara, mayor of Tecumseh. “I have always said Tecumseh is a great location with excellent proximity to North American markets. We are pleased Laticrete has chosen our town to open their business and look forward to supporting their future growth in the region.”

“Canada consistently ranks in the world’s top 10 largest construction markets, making it a prime area for growth,” says Stephen Butkovich, director of Laticrete Canada. "Over the years, we have seen carryover between the U.S., and Canada with many skilled workers attending American trade shows. This new presence is a prime opportunity to combine the knowledge of those workers and be able to better assist our Canadian customers with easier access to our team and our products."

Prior to his new role, Butkovich served as a regional sales manager overseeing business channels in the Mid-Atlantic and Canada-East regions.

“It’s been our pleasure working with Laticrete, and this announcement today certainly enhances our collective efforts in diversifying our economy,” says Stephen MacKenzie, CEO of WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation, which assisted Laticrete with scouting locations, matching benefits and provided macroeconomic data to determine the perfect location.
