Our History

Who We Are

In 1953, Edward Creske founded Wausau Tile with a simple formula for success: quality and service. With Ed’s unwavering commitment to quality and personalized customer service, Wausau Tile has forged lasting partnerships with many architects, designers and companies worldwide. Our company has never wavered from Ed’s founding values which has ensured that the name Wausau Tile is synonymous with American craftsmanship, dependability and innovation.

Throughout the past seven decades, Wausau Tile has grown to become the preeminent manufacturer of architectural concrete, terrazzo and metal products. We were the first American manufacturer of cementitious terrazzo tile and among the first domestic producers of hydraulically pressed concrete pavers. Today we are a leader in innovative sustainable manufacturing practices, using recycled materials and green technology, and our products are found in virtually every community in the United States. Our 550,000-square-foot manufacturing facility remains in the heart of the American Midwest – encompassing more than 10 acres and buzzing with the sounds of skilled craftsmen and designers.

Wausau Tile is the trusted choice for many of the world’s leading designers, engineers and building professionals. Whether they’re creating projects on Main Street U.S.A. or at iconic destinations such as Time Square or Cleveland Public Square, they choose to partner with our collaborative, creative and responsive team time and time again.
