Great Lakes Ceramic Tile Council

The Great Lakes Ceramic Tile Council was founded in 1963.  We are a nonprofit industry foundation funded by the voluntary contribution of the members of  the Detroit Ceramic Tile Contractors Association. Our vision for 45 years has remained constant…to assist the architectural and design community in specifying proper ANSI installation methods for ceramic tile.  We also offer AIA/CES accredited classes reviewing ANSI-approved setting methods.  We are here to help.
