Who We Are
Edward Creske founded Wausau Tile in 1953. He believed the formula for success is simple: quality and service. This remains the company’s guiding force today.
Ed’s unwavering commitment to quality and personalized customer service forged lasting partnerships with many architects, designers and companies worldwide.
Throughout the past six decades, Wausau Tile’s products have been used in projects from McDonald’s restaurants to the Guggenheim Museum to Times Square. Today Wausau Tile’s products are found in virtually every community in the United States.
As Wausau Tile grew to become the preeminent manufacturer of architectural concrete, terrazzo and metal products, the company never wavered from Ed’s founding values. These values ensure the Wausau Tile name is synonymous with American craftsmanship, dependability and innovation.
We were the first American manufacturer of cementitious terrazzo tile and among the first domestic producers of hydraulically pressed concrete pavers. We are a leader in innovative sustainable manufacturing practices, using recycled materials and green technology.
